Here’s the recipe, it takes about 45 minutes and serves 2.

What you need:

For the Chimichurri

  • 2 shallots
  • 3 large garlic cloves
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes
  • Half juice 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp Green Tabasco
  • Whole bunch fresh parsley

For the rest:

  • 2 Sirloin steaks, rested at room temperature and rubbed with olive oil, salt and pepper
  • 1 courgette
  • A few handfuls of frozen petit pois or garden peas
  • 2 portions of frozen oven chips
  • 50g Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper for seasoning

What to do:

  • First of all preheat your oven cook the chips as per packet instructions. To make them taste a little nicer, I usually drizzle a little olive oil on them before cooking and season really well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Make the chimichurri by blitzing the parsley, oregano, garlic, shallots and chilli flakes in a food processor (or chop very finely by hand). Add the olive oil, lemon juice, white wine vinegar and some seasoning, and pulse to combine everything to a sauce consistency.
  • Using a Spiralizer or a peeler, slice the courgette into thin strips. Add to a microwave proof bowl with the frozen peas and top with boiling water. Microwave on full power for 3 minutes until cooked through. Drain and cover to keep warm until serving.

  • For the steaks, heat a griddle pan and cook the steaks for 2-3 mins on each side or until done to your liking. Once cooked, rest for 5 minutes before serving in some tin foil to keep warm.
  • Once the chips are done, remove from the oven and grate over the Parmesan cheese and a little more salt and pepper to taste. Serve everything on the table at once so you can dig-in and enjoy!
