Step 1 To make fresh herb salsa, place all ingredients in a food processor. Process until evenly chopped and well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Step 2 Using a meat mallet, flatten steaks until thin. Place in a medium dish. Combine oil and garlic in a jug. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle oil mixture over steaks and toss steaks to coat. Cover and set aside for 10 minutes.
Step 3 Meanwhile, heat a medium saucepan of boiling water over high heat. Add beans and cook for 2-3 minutes until just tender. Drain, refresh in cold water and pat dry with paper towel.
Step 4 Heat a large heavy-based frying pan over high heat until very hot. Cook steaks, in batches, for about 30 seconds on each side until evenly seared. Transfer to a plate. Cover and rest for 5 minutes. Arrange beans, radishes and steaks on serving plates. Serve with fresh herb salsa.
