Steak and Chips Recipe
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 45 mins
Total Time: 55 mins
1 medium white potato / sweet potato*
1 beef medallion steak
1tsp extra virgin olive oil
1tsp of paprika
Pinch of salt
Pinch of black pepper
6 Asparagus tips
*calories based on 1 medium white potato
Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees/gas mark 4. Peel your potato and cut into wedges/chip-like shapes. Add them to a Tupperware container where you will add 1tsp olive oil, 1 tsp paprika and a pinch of salt and pepper. Give the tub a good shake (evenly covering your chips with seasoning) and then add your chips to a non-stick oven tray. Bake your chips for 45 minutes, turning them over halfway through.
Pre-heat a pan over a high heat and add your steak, cooking to your liking. Rare: 2 minutes each side; Medium: 3 minutes each side; Well done: 4-5 minutes each side. Once cooked, let the steak rest for 5 minutes on a warm plate before serving.
While your steak is ‘resting’, wash your asparagus tips and season with salt and pepper (optional). Pre-heat a pan on high heat (you can use the steak pan to save on washing up!) and add your asparagus. Grill the asparagus for 2-4 minutes, until lightly charred and just fork tender, turning them often so they brown on all sides.
