We all love a good steak and what better to go with it then some seasoned potatoes. Then to compliment it perfectly, some spicy slaw.
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cooking time: 40 Minutes
- 430g Maris Piper potatoes , cut into 1.5cm chunks
- 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 x 400g bavette steak
- ¼ small bunch of coriander , finely chopped
For the spicy slaw
- ¼ small red cabbage , shredded
- ½ red onion , finely sliced
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp soured cream
- ½ tbsp chipotle chilli paste
- STEP 1
Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, add the potatoes and cook for 5 mins. Drain and leave to steam-dry in the colander for a few minutes. Toss the potatoes with the Cajun seasoning, half the oil and a good pinch of salt. Tip onto a baking tray and roast for 25-30 mins or until golden and crisp, tossing halfway through.
- STEP 2
To make the slaw, combine the cabbage, onion, mayonnaise, soured cream and chipotle paste in a bowl until the cabbage and onion are well coated. Set aside.
- STEP 3
Rub the steak with the remaining oil and season both sides. Heat a griddle pan or non-stick frying pan over a high heat until very hot. Add the steak to the pan, cook for 2 mins on one side, then 3 mins on the other. Remove, put on a chopping board, cover with foil and leave to rest for 5 mins. Slice into strips.
- STEP 4
Serve the steak with the potatoes scattered with the coriander and a pile of the spicy slaw.
