Ingredients

MASH

  • 800 g potatoes (i.e. Agria) (1lb 12oz)
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 3-4 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 3/4 cup grated Colby cheese (75g)

STEAK & BALSAMIC TOMATOES

  • 550 g beef sirloin steak (1lb 3oz)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 250 g cherry tomatoes (8.8oz)
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 beef stock cube dissolved in 1/2 cup boiling water (125ml)

TO SERVE

  • 250 g green beans (8.8oz)
  • 40 g baby rocket (1.4oz)

Instructions

  1. PREPARE STEAK AND POTATOES

    Peel potatoes and chop into large pieces. Place in a large saucepan and add water to cover.

  2. Season steak all over with salt and pepper. Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a large frying pan on medium-high. Add steak and cook for 3 minutes each side (for medium-rare).

  3. While steak cooks, finely dice onion and crush garlic. Remove steak onto a board, cover with foil and leave to rest. Boil potatoes for 20 minutes.

  4. MAKE BALSAMIC TOMATOES

    Using same pan you cooked the steak in, turn heat to medium and add remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil. Cook onion and garlic for 2 minutes, then add tomatoes and cook for a further 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar, sugar and oregano. Simmer for 1 minute. Add beef stock mixture and simmer gently for 10 minutes, until sauce has thickened and some of the tomatoes have burst (add more boiling water if sauce gets too thick).

  5. PREPARE BEANS

    While sauce is simmering, trim ends off beans and place in a microwave-safe dish.

  6. SERVE

    Slice steak into strips and stir into balsamic tomatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Microwave beans for 1-2 minutes, until tender. Drain potatoes well, add butter, milk and oregano and mash until smooth. Stir in cheese over a low heat to melt, then season to taste with salt and pepper.

  7. Serve mash topped with steak and balsamic tomatoes. Place beans and rocket on the side.
