Easy oven chips Cut baking potatoes into batons, toss in a little olive oil and plenty of sea salt, and cook at 200 C, 180 C fan, 400 F, gas 6 for 30 to 40 minutes, turning a couple of times. Flavour with smoked paprika, dried oregano or thyme, or garam masala for a take on curried chips.
- 35g (1¼oz) butter
- little olive oil
- 300g (10oz) mixed mushrooms, sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 British sirloin steaks
- handful parsley, leaves removed and finely chopped
Heat a frying pan and add the butter with just a splash of oil. When very hot, throw in the mushrooms with a generous amount of seasoning and fry on a high heat for a few minutes until they’re browned and slightly caramelised. Toss in the garlic and cook for around 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan, oil and season the steaks and cook for 2 to 4 minutes on each side, depending on thickness. Allow the steaks to rest for a few minutes, then tip the juices into the mushrooms, heat again, add the parsley and serve over the sliced steaks. This dish is delicious served with our homemade chips (see recipe below).
Rub a little oil and lots of pepper into the steaks as an easy marinade – for 30 minutes if you can
