Having a bit of a play with flavors and i discovered how good potatoes, olives and speak together tasted. Yum! pair that with a perfect medium steak and my mushroom sauce and you have a delicious, easy meal. My tip is to always bring your steaks to room temperature before cooking so you get an even cook.
2 Large Potatoes, peeled and diced
8 Kalamata Olives, pitted and halved
50g Speck (Can use 2 Rashes streaky Bacon instead)
Salt & Pepper
2 Porterhouse steaks
1/2 Serving of my Mushroom Sauce (click here for recipe)
Preheat oven to 220'c. Put potatoes into a pot of salted water and boil for 10mins or until partly cooked, drain and fluff (to fluff cover potatoes and shake them to rough up the flesh, this is what crisps them up). Mix potatoes, olives and speck or bacon with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and place into the oven for 25mins or until golden and crispy.
Whilst potatoes are cooking heat up a non stick frying pan. When hot lay your steaks into it and press down gently, wait until it sealed and then flip, seal the other side and then put into the oven for 8mins. Once cooked rest until potatoes are done.
To serve i like to layer my potato mix along the plate with a fan of lightly pink steak and drizzled with mushroom sauce. My kind of heaven!
