Servings: Change Serving


Brush the steaks with olive oil and season well with salt and pepper. Heat a griddle pan until very hot and fry the steaks over high heat until cooked to the desired degree of doneness. Set aside to rest, then cut into thin slices.

Melt the butter in a separate frying pan and fry the garlic and thyme for a minute over low heat or until the garlic is transparent. Divide between the steaks by pouring a little over each one, or serve it separately in a jug.

In a bowl, mix the mangetout, baby spinach and feta cheese to make the salad. Serve the steaks immediately with the salad and mashed potatoes or oven-baked chips.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
