Instructions

Make the Chips
1
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then chop into 1cm chips (peeling optional).
  • Pop the chips onto a large (lined) baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season well with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
  • When the oven is hot, bake on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Prep the Veg
2
  • Meanwhile, pop the garlic (unpeeled) into a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil. Scrunch to enclose.
  • Add the parcel to the baking tray with the chips and roast until soft, 20-25 mins. Once cooked remove from the oven.
  • While everything roasts, trim and thinly slice the scallion.
  • Zest and halve the lime.
  • Trim the green beans.
Cook the Green Beans
3
  • When the chips have 15 mins left to go, place a pan over medium-high heat (no oil).
  • Once hot, cook the lime halves, cut-side down, until charred, 3-4 mins. Remove from pan.
  • Wipe the pan and return to medium heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Once hot, fry the green beans until just charred, 2-3 mins. Lower heat to medium, cook for 1 min.
  • Add a splash of water and cover with a lid. Cook until tender, 4-5 mins. Remove from the pan. Cover to keep warm.
Sear the Sirloin
4
  • Wipe the pan and return to high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Season the sirloin with salt and pepper.
  • Once hot, fry the sirloin until browned, 1-2 mins on 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.

TIP: Cook in batches if necessary.

Baste the Beef
5
  • Once the roasted garlic has cooled, cut the end with scissors, squeeze out of its skin and mash with 2 tbsp butter (double for 4p).
  • Add the butter to the pan. Let it melt then add the scallion, lime zest and chilli flakes (use less if you don't like spice).
  • Use a spoon to baste the sirloin in the chimichurri butter.
  • Once cooked, transfer the sirloin to a board, cover and rest, 1-2 mins. IMPORTANT: Meat is safe to eat when outside is browned.
Garnish and Serve
6
  • When everything is ready, slice the steaks widthways into 1cm slices and transfer to your plates.
  • Spoon over the chimichurri butter sauce from the pan.
  • Serve with chips, green beans and charred lime for squeezing over alongside.
