Steak is EASY, you just need to cook it right! With the creamy dauphinoise potatoes, cherry tomatoes and green beans is the perfect combo. With a large glass of red of course!
- Sirloin Steak (this is what I have used in the photo, and I personally find it more tasty)
- Salt and Pepper
- Green Beans
- Cherry tomatoes on the vine
- King Edward Potatoes
- Double Cream
- Cheddar Cheese
I like my steak Medium Rare and to do this I cook for 4 minutes each side. Before cooking your steak you will need to prepare. I add a small splash of olive oil, and a large pinch of rock salt and generously cover in pepper. Leave to the side.
Dauphinoise do take a while in the oven (around 35mins) so you want to cook these before anything else.
- Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Tip the cream, milk and garlic into a large saucepan and bring to a simmer. Slice the potatoes very finely, about 3-4mm, add them to the cream and simmer for 3 mins until just cooked. Gently stir to separate the potato and stop it sinking and catching on the bottom of the pan.
- Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon and place in a wide shallow ovenproof dish so that they are about 5cm in depth. Pour over the garlic infused cream, just enough to seep through the layers and leave a little moisture on the surface. Scatter over the cheese, if using, then bake for 35 mins until the potatoes are soft and browned – increase the heat for 5 mins if not brown enough.
Now time for the good part, STEAK!
If you add your cherry tomatoes into a dish with salt and pepper, and place in the oven now as these will take 5 mins. Put on some boiling water, and add in the green beans at the same time, as this will also take around 5 mins.
Get a pan really nice and hot with a small splash of oil. When you add the steak in, you want it to sizzle!
Place in both steaks and then just LEAVE IT for 4 mins, do not move or keep prodding the steak as this will make it firm up. When your 4 mins is up, turn them bad boys over and WAIT another 4 mins.
When the steak is done, remove from the pan and let them rest on a wooden board whilst you serve up all the other goodies onto a plate. The longer you leave the steak to rest, the better.
Then slice up and add to your plate!
I hope you enjoy!
