Recipe Ingredients Image
  • A bag of salad potatoes
  • A handful of wild garlic
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 sirloin minute steaks
  • 2 large handfuls of lamb's lettuce
From your kitchen
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
You'll need
  • Pan with a lid
  • Colander
  • Small food processor (optional)
  • Griddle or frying pan
  • Foil
Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Fill the kettle and boil it. Scrub the potatoes in cold water. Pop them in a pan. Pour in enough hot water from the kettle to cover them. Pop on the lid. Bring to the boil.

  • 2.

    Turn the heat down under the potatoes. Simmer for 12-15 mins till the potatoes are tender when pressed by a fork. Drain them.

  • 3.

    While the potatoes simmer, give the wild garlic a good rinse. Roughly chop it. Pop it in a small food processor. Add 1 tbsp of the vinegar and 2 tbsp olive oil. Season. Blitz to make a sauce. No processor? Just finely chop the wild garlic and stir everything together.

  • 4.

    Trim and finely slice the spring onions. Put to one side. Tip the drained potatoes out onto a chopping board. Lightly squash them with a fork so they just burst. Put aside with the spring onions.

  • 5.

    Rub 1 tsp oil into each sirloin minute steak. Season with salt and pepper. Warm a griddle or frying pan over a high heat. When it's really hot, add the steaks.

  • 6.

    Fry the steaks for 1-3 mins. Flip them over, fry for another 1-3 mins (the less you cook it, the rarer it will be). Pop the steaks on a warm plate. Cover with foil. Leave the steaks to rest.

  • 7.

    Warm another 1 tsp in the griddle or frying pan. Add the spring onions. Turn the heat down. Stir and fry for 3-4 mins till the spring onions are soft and glossy looking.

  • 8.

    Add the potatoes to the pan. Fry the potatoes for 5-8 mins till they're a little golden. Turn every so often. Serve them with the steaks, the lamb's lettuce and wild garlic sauce.
