Griddled sirloin steak & chip salad

It’s time steak and chips had a modern update and we’ve given this classic gastro dish a healthy twist by tossing the perfect portion of chips with griddled steak strips and salad leaves

  • Preparation: 10 mins
  • Cooking: 20 mins
  • Serves: 2

What you need:

  • 2-3 medium potatoes e.g. Maris Piper
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 x 175g sirloin steaks
  • 130g bag mixed salad leaves
  • 2 tbsp French dressing
  • ½ tsp black and red pepper blend or crushed black peppercorns

What you do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200o C, Gas mark 6. Cut 2-3 medium peeled potatoes into chips. Place in a medium sandwich bag with 1 tbsp oil and shake well to coat. Transfer to a non-stick baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes until golden.
  2. Meanwhile, brush 2 sirloin steaks with a little oil and griddle or fry for 2-3 minutes each side then set aside.
  3. Mix a 130g bag of mixed salad with 2 tbsp French dressing.
  4. Slice the steaks and mix with the chips and ½ tsp black and red pepper blend or crushed black peppercorns.
  5. Place on top of the salad and serve immediately.
