Steak and Fries
340g/12oz sweet potatoes
spray olive oil
leaves stripped from a few fresh rosemary sprigs
leaves stripped from a few fresh thyme sprigs
a pinch of sea salt crystals
2 x 175g/6oz lean sirloin steaks, all visible fat removed
ground black pepper
grilled mushrooms and cherry tomatoes to serve
1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6.
2 Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them lengthways into ‘chips’. Place them in a roasting pan, spreading them out, and spray lightly with oil. Add the rosemary and thyme leaves and grind some black pepper over the top. Sprinkle lightly with the sea salt.
3 Cook in the oven for 20–30 minutes, turning occasionally, until tender inside and golden brown and crisp outside.
4 Lightly spray a non-stick ridged griddle pan with oil and place over a high heat. When it’s really hot, add the steaks and cook for 2–3 minutes each side (rare); 4–5 minutes (medium); or 5–6 minutes (well done).
5 Serve the steaks with the ‘fries’ and some grilled mushrooms and cherry tomatoes.
