Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Fill the kettle and boil it. Peel the onion. Halve it. Cut each half into about 6 wedges. Peel and crush or grate the garlic. Halve the tomatoes.

  • 2.

    Halve the cabbage. Save one half for later (see our handy tip). Remove any tatty outer leaves. Shred it. Rinse in a colander. Drain and pat dry.

  • 3.

    Fill a pan with hot water from the kettle. Bring to the boil. Add the spaghetti. Simmer for 8 mins till the spaghetti is soft with a little chew to it.

  • 4.

    Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan or wok. Fry the onions over high heat for 3 mins till beginning to soften. Add the tomatoes and fry for 2 mins till both are soft.

  • 5.

    Add the garlic and cabbage to the pan. Stir well. Season. Add 3 tbsp water. Cover the pan with a baking tray or lid. Let the cabbage steam for 3 mins. Drain the spaghetti.

  • 6.

    Heat a griddle pan over medium heat. Brush the steaks on both sides with ½ tbsp olive oil. Season with a little salt and pepper. Cook the steaks in the hot griddle pan for 2 mins on each side till charred but still pink inside.

  • 7.

    Transfer the steak to a board and rest for 1-2 mins. Divide the spaghetti between two warm plates. Top with the veg. Cut the steak into 2 cm slices. Place on top of the veg. Serve straight away.

  • Tip

    Forever blowing bubbles
    Save that extra cabbage for a lazy weekend brunch. Stir-fry shredded cabbage with a chopped onion and seasoning. Stir into mashed potatoes and shape into patties. Dust with flour. Fry for 3 mins on each side.
