- Fillet steak
- Potato farls
- Balsamic vinegar
- An egg
People tend to head out at the weekends for their brunch fix, but since that can be a pricey habit we thought we'd come up with a killer little dish for you to make at home.
The potato farls are what bring this one all together, but if you can't find them some baguette would come a close second.
Splash out a little and get some good quality steak, it's definitely worth it.
Only a few simple ingredients needed.
Slice up the shallots as fine as you can.
Lash them into a small pot with some oil over a low to medium heat. You want to gently sweat sweetness out of them. Low and slow as they say.
Season up the steak. Make sure you have it out nice and early to come up to room temperature. Salt, pepper and oil smeared all over it.
Keep the onions moving every couple of minutes. They'll take about 15 minutes in total and you'll see them colour in front of your eyes.
Pick the stalks out of the kale to leave you with the little perfect leaves. Pop the kale into a pan with some oil and cook it gently for about 7 minutes. You just want to soften it up.
Lash the steak into a really hot griddle pan. A frying pan will also do.
Lash a bit of balsamic onto the onions. This will help them come together perfectly after about another 5 minutes of cooking.
Turn the steak at 90 degrees for those appetising grill marks.
When the onions and brown and getting sticky, whip them off the heat. They'll be absolutely delicious.
Whip the steak off to rest for a few minutes. It'll only take about 3 minutes on each side if you want it medium rare.
With the kale out of the pan lash in the potato farls. All they'll need is a bit of oil and browning up on both sides for about 2 minutes each side.
Lash the potato farls on first topped with the kale.
When you cut into the steak it should look something like this. If you prefer it without blood leave it on a bit longer... but that'd be a sin.
Lash an egg on to fry. Season it up with a little salt and pepper while it's cooking.
You could leave the steak whole if you're cooking for a bunch of people, but I like slicing it up making it easier to eat.
Lash the steak on top of the kale and a good big spoonful of the onions on top of that.
Finish with the eggs and stuff your face as fast as you possibly can. Bloody delish.
Get the frying pan out and give it a whirl this weekend.
