How to Cook


First, make the Tarragon dressing

Remove the skin and de-seed the tomatoes. Chop finely and place in a bowl

Add the rest of the ingredients, except the herbs, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Set aside

Heat the oven to 200 degrees C/Gas mark 6

Peel the potatoes and cut into chunky sticks

Blanch in a pan of boiling salted water for 4 minutes

Drain well and pat dry with a clean tea towel

Spread the chips on an oiled baking tray

Drizzle with the Groundnut Oil, season generously with salt and scatter over the Rosemary leaves

Cook in the oven for 40-50 minutes until golden brown and crisp, turning the potatoes several times during cooking to ensure even colouring

Season the steaks, both sides with salt and pepper and drizzle over olive oil

Heat a griddle pan until very hot, then cook steaks for no more than 3 minutes on each side

When ready they will feel springy if lightly pressed

Transfer the steaks to a warm plate, lightly cover with foil and leave to rest for 5-10 minutes

Meanwhile, stir the chopped tarragon and chopped parsley

Slice the steaks thickly on the diagonal, arrange on the warm plates and spoon over the tomato tarragon dressing

Serve with hot oven chips on the side.
