Elevate a steak sarnie with a chimichurr­istyle sauce

Chimichurr­i-style steak sarnies & cheat’s spicy fries

We’ve elevated a steak sandwich with our version of a punchy, zingy chimichurr­i sauce, chipotle mayo and spicy Cajun-style fries on the side. The trick to perfect oven fries is to heat your oil in the oven first before tossing the fries in it, just as you would a roast potato, to create the sought-after crispy exterior.

SERVES 2 PREP 25 mins plus 10 mins resting COOK 40 mins EASY

2 x 200g rump steaks, fat removed 2 long ciabatta rolls

2 handfuls of rocket

For the fries

30ml sunflower oil

270g shop-bought frozen fries ½ tbsp Cajun spice mix

For the chipotle mayo

70g mayonnaise

1 tsp chipotle chilli paste ½ lime, zested and juiced For the chimichurr­i

1 banana shallot, peeled and

roughly chopped

1 red chilli, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, crushed

1½ tbsp sherry vinegar small bunch of parsley small bunch of coriander 50ml extra virgin olive oil

1 Heat the oven to its highest setting. For the fries, pour the sunflower oil into a baking tray and put in the oven for 15 mins to get hot. Reduce the temperatur­e to 220C/200C fan/gas 8. Tip the fries into the oil, turn to coat, and cook for 20 mins. Add the Cajun spice mix and return to the oven for 15 mins until golden and crisp.

2 Meanwhile, make the mayo by mixing all the ingredient­s together in a bowl. Set aside.

3 For the chimichurr­i-style sauce, blitz all the ingredient­s together until you have a smooth sauce, then season to taste. Set aside.

4 Heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Rub the steaks with salt only (pepper will catch and burn), put the steaks in the pan and cook for 3 mins on each side (for medium). Remove from the pan, cover with foil and leave to rest for 10 mins.

5 Halve the ciabatta rolls, toast in the same griddle pan that you cooked the steak in, cut-side down, and spread one half of each with the chipotle mayo. Slice the steak into strips, divide between the ciabattas, drizzle over the chimichurr­i and add a little rocket. Serve with the fries and any leftover mayo.
