- Boil a large pot of salted water for the potatoes.
- Peel the potatoes and chop into 2cm chunks.
- Cook the potatoes in the boiling water until fork tender, 15-18 mins.
- Once cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pot, off the heat.
- Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk or water and mash until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.
- Meanwhile, zest half the lemon (double for 4p). Cut into 4 wedges.
- Season the steak with salt and pepper.
- Cut the broccoli into florets. Halve any large florets. Roughly chop the hazelnuts.
- Place a large pan over medium heat (no oil). Once hot, add the chopped hazelnuts and dry-fry, stirring regularly, until toasted, 2-3 mins.
- Remove from the pan and toss with the lemon zest.
TIP: Watch the hazelnuts like a hawk as they can burn easily.
- Return the pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
- Once the pan is hot, add the broccoli and fry until starting to char, 2-3 mins.
- Add the juice of one lemon wedge (double for 4p) and a splash of water then immediately cover with a lid or some foil.
- Cook until tender, 4-5 mins. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the pan, set aside and cover to keep warm.
TIP: Give the pan a wipe if you like—you'll be using it later!
- Return the pan to high heat with a drizzle of oil.
- Once hot, fry the steak until browned, 1-2 mins each side for medium-rare.
- Cook for another 1-2 mins on each side if you want it more well-done. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat and its packaging. Meat is safe to eat when the outside is browned.
- Once cooked, remove from pan, cover with foil and allow to rest.
- Return the pan to high heat, add the red wine jus and bring to the boil.
- Add a splash of water to loosen if required.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Thinly slice the steak.
- Divide the steak between plates.
- Dish up a spoonful of creamy mashed potato.
- Serve the broccoli alongside with the lemony toasted hazelnuts sprinkled over.
- Finish with a drizzle of the red wine jus over the steak slices.
