Eye Fillet Steak with Basil Chimichurri and Roast Kipfler Potatoes

Serves 4

Ingredients

500g Kipfler potatoes, washed

4x 150g Eye Fillet Steak (or 2 larger steaks, slice to serve)

1 tsp Red Island Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Salt and pepper

 

Chimichurri

2/3 cup basil

2/3 cup flat leaf parsley

2 cloves of garlic

1/3 cup spring onion

1 jalapeno chilli, stalk removed

¼ cup fresh oregano

¼ tsp salt

3/4 cup Red Island Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/3 cup red wine vinegar

Serving suggestion: green salad, as pictured

 

Directions

1- Allow the steak to come to room temperature before cooking.

2- Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius. Place kipfler potatoes in a pot and fill with water to just cover. Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Boil for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.

3- Make chimichurri by adding all the non-liquid ingredients to a small food processor. Process until finely chopped and then add the Red Island Extra Virgin Olive Oil and red wine vinegar. Process to combine. Check seasoning and set aside.

4- Toss the drained potatoes in 3 tablespoons of the chimichurri and then spread them in a single layer on a baking tray. Roast for 30-40 minutes, or until golden.

5- With 15 minutes to go, cook your steak. Use the barbecue or a grill pan on medium high heat. Once hot brush the grill with Red Island Extra Virgin Olive Oil season the steak and place on the grill. Cook for 3-4 minutes each side for medium rare, less or more depending on your preference and the thickness of the steak. Allow the steak to rest for 5 minutes before slicing/serving.

6- Serve the steak drizzled in the chimichurri sauce, with the kipfler potatoes and a simple green salad on the side.

I started to share the delicious food I create at home with others that might be in need of a little inspiration. I also started it to motivate myself. I think looking after yourself is hugely important and that it really does start with food. I love food. A lot. Maybe too much (not true, there’s no such thing). This means that I love to eat out at the fantastic array of cafes and restaurants Melbourne has to offer… so therefore when I’m cooking for myself I tend to keep it as healthy as I can, because life is all about balance!
