Steak is definitely a bit of a treat, especially when you’re on a budget! If you shop from local producers and markets, you’ll find you can get some fairly cheap cuts, its all about shopping around and keeping it local.
-1 steak (whichever cut you prefer)
-A handful of breadcrumbs
-A tablespoon of pepper
-A teaspoon of salt
-A teaspoon of chopped chilli (Or chilli flakes)
-A teaspoon of garlic powder
-A handful of new potatoes
-Half a leek
-A handful of spinach
-A handful of sugar snap peas
- Chop the leeks, potatoes and peas into chunks. Pop them, along with the spinach, into a medium sizes saucepan and cover with boiling water. Leave them to boil for around 10-15 mins until you can put a fork through the potatoes easily.
- Mix the breadcrumbs, pepper, salt, chilli and garlic powder in a bowl and rub into the steak on both sides.
- Turn the grill onto a medium heat and grill for between 3-8 mins depending on how rare or well done you like it.
- Drain the veggies and pop on the plate next to the steak. That’s dinner ready to go!
