Ingredients

  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved, or use a few semi-dried from a jar
  • Olive oil
  • 300g broad beans, podded weight
  • 900g new or salad potatoes, scrubbed clean & cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 tbsp olive oil for dressing
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • Small handful fresh herbs, chopped, e.g. chives, mint & basil
  • 400-600g quick frying steak (minute steak)
  • 20g butter
  • Salt & pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 120˚C/Gas ½. If using fresh tomatoes, place them cut side up on a non-stick baking tray and drizzle with a little olive oil. Season. Bake in the oven for 1 ½-2 hours, until softened and partly dried out. Remove and leave to cool.
  2. In a pan of boiling water, cook the broad beans for 3 minutes. Drain, refresh in cold water, then remove the outer skin (discard this) to leave the inner green bean. Put in a large bowl with the tomatoes.
  3. In a pan of salted boiling water, cook the potatoes until just tender (about 8 minutes). Drain, leave to cool slightly, then add to the bowl with the tomatoes and broad beans.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, the balsamic vinegar, herbs and season well. Gently toss together. Heat a large frying pan. Drizzle the steak with a little oil and season.
  5. Once the pan is very hot, fry for a couple of minutes on each side, then add a little knob of butter. Remove the steak from the heat once the butter is melted and has started to foam. Leave the meat to rest for a good couple of minutes, then serve with the potato salad.
