  • For the matchstick fries:
  • 200 g Woolworths Nicola Mediterranean potatoes, peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • Sunflower oil, for frying
  • For the anchovy-spinach sauce:
  • 200 g butter
  • 20 g anchovies, chopped
  • 2 T red wine vinegar
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 200 g baby spinach
  • 400 g tenderised steak

Cooking Instructions

To make the matchstick fries, toss the potato matchsticks in paper towel to dry and blot off the excess starch. Heat the sunflower oil in a medium-sized saucepan. Fry the potatoes in batches until golden brown, then remove using a slotted spoon. Drain on kitchen paper.

To make the anchovy-spinach sauce, heat the butter and a dash of olive oil in a pan and fry the anchovies until they melt. Add the vinegar and pepper and set aside.

To cook the steak, heat sunflower oil in a pan over a high heat and pan-fry the steaks for 1 minute on each side.

To serve, mix the spinach into the warm anchovy sauce until wilted. Serve the steak with the sauce and fries.
