Ingredients

  • 3 large Desiree potatoes - cut into wedges

  • 2 beef fillet steaks - around 140g each
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Knob of butter
  • Watercress - to serve

Method

Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 30 mins

Preheat the oven to 200° C, 180° C fan, 400F, Gas mark 6.

Wash and dry the potatoes, but don't peel them. Cut them into large wedges and place in a bowl with 1 tbsp of olive oil, the garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well then tip the potatoes onto a baking tray and bake in the pre - heated oven until golden-brown and cooked all the way through - this should take around 30 minutes.

While they are cooking, rub the steaks with a drizzle of oil and plenty of cracked black pepper. Heat a griddle pan until very hot, and cook the steaks to your liking. As a guide; 2½ minutes each side for medium rare, 3½ minutes for medium, 4½ minutes for well done. Obviously this also depends on the size of the steaks.

Allow the steaks to rest for 5 minutes, then top with a knob of butter and serve with the potato wedges and garnish with watercress.
