Great marinade for steak - plus chilli onion rings

Staying in with kids means that most weekends one of us will cook something different.
The OH always heads for Levi Roots or African cookbooks. Last night he found a simple, but bloody lovely, steak marinade. So good I thought I’d post it.
This is based on 2 people, so just adjust to what you need.
2 x steaks of your choice (we had sirloin, the recipe suggests rump)
For the marinade:
1 tbsp. medium curry powder
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
2 tbsp soy sauce
Mix together and marinade the steaks for 1 hour. Take them out and cook to your taste. Keep the marinade to use as a dip for your onion rings. (heat on high it for 1 minute in a pan or microwave before serving)
Chilli onion rings
We just added chilli powder, ground cumin, finely chopped fresh green chilli to a thick batter. (batter made with plain flour, water, salt)
One large white onion made enough for 2 adults, with leftovers for the kids.
Slice the onion into rings, dip into the batter and fry in hot oil (deep fat fryer or deep frying pan) 'til golden brown.
