Bring a medium saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Peel the potato and cut into 2cm chunks. Trim the ends of the broccolini and green beans, then cut into 3cm pieces. In a medium bowl, combine the miso paste (see ingredients) and 1/2 the butter. Season with pepper and mash with a fork to combine. Set aside.
Cook the potato in the boiling water until easily pierced with a knife, 10-15 minutes. Drain and return to the saucepan. Add the salt, milk and remaining butter, then mash with a potato masher or fork until smooth. Stir through the crispy shallots and cover to keep warm.
While the potato is cooking, heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the sesame seeds and toast, tossing, until golden, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a pestle and mortar and grind the seeds until they are a coarse powder. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add the Japanese dressing and soy sauce, mix well and set aside. TIP: If you don't have a pestle and mortar, leave the sesame seeds whole.
Return the frying pan to a high heat. Drizzle the sirloin steak with olive oil and season with salt on both sides. When the pan is hot, cook the steak for 2 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or until cooked to your liking. Using tongs, sear the fat until golden, 30 seconds. Transfer to a plate, then top with the miso butter and set aside to rest.
Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the broccolini and green beans with a splash of water, tossing, until tender, 5-6 minutes. Add the salad leaves and stir through until just wilted. Add the sesame dressing and toss until well combined.
Finely chop the herbs. Thinly slice the long red chilli (if using). Slice the sirloin steak. Divide the steak, crispy onion mash and sesame veggies between plates. Spoon any resting juices over the steak. Sprinkle the herbs over the mash and garnish with the chilli.
