Ingredients you'll need
  • 500g new potatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • A handful of rosemary, leaves only
  • 2 sirloin minute steaks
  • 50g watercress
From your kitchen
  • Sea salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Freshly ground pepper
Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Put a large pan of salted water on to boil. Scrub the potatoes and roughly chop them into small, equal sized pieces.

  • 2.

    When the water is boiling, add the potatoes. Simmer for 10-15 mins or till they're tender when pressed with a fork.

  • 3.

    While the potatoes cook, peel and finely slice the red onion. Peel and grate or crush the garlic. Finely chop the rosemary leaves.

  • 4.

    When the potatoes are cooked, drain them and tip them back into the pan. Roughly mash them so they break into large clumps (not a smooth mash).

  • 5.

    Warm a frying pan for 1 min. Add 1 tbsp olive oil and the onion. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook over a medium heat for 5 mins, stirring often, till the onions have picked up a bit of colour.

  • 6.

    Stir in the garlic. Cook and stir for 1 min. Add the potatoes to the pan with an extra 1/2 tbsp olive oil. Cook for 10-12 mins, stirring once or twice, so the potatoes crisp up and turn golden.

  • 7.

    While the potatoes fry, put a griddle or frying pan on a high heat to warm up for 2-3 mins. Rub 1/2 tbsp oil and some salt and pepper into the steaks.

  • 8.

    Add the steaks to the frying pan. Fry for 1-2 mins on each side, depending on how well done you like your steaks. Pop them on a plate and loosely cover with foil. Rest for 2 mins

  • 9.

    Stir the rosemary into the new potato smash. Serve with the steaks and a handful of watercress.
