  • Tomato
  • Oregano and thyme (optional)

What you'll do

Preheat the oven to 210 degrees. While it heats up, you can cut a tomato in two, add some oil and oregano, and put it in the oven: oven baked tomatoes are the best, but the time to cook will varied based on the tomato's size, variety, and the season - and of course the oven you use.

Season the steak with salt and pepper on both sides and let rest. After half an hour to two hours, put some oil in a cast iron skillet on medium high, and sizzle/sear the steak around 2 to 3 minutes per side. Add in some thyme or rosemary for extra flavour!

Place in the oven and finish cooking for around 10 minutes (well done). As usual, if you have a meat thermometer: medium rare 55°C, well done 70°C.

While the steak finishes cooking, add some butter and frozen peas into a pan and rehydrate them for 3 to 5 minutes. Add into a blender with milk and chopped parsley, plus some salt if you want. Sieve it if you like your puree to be extra smooth, and serve on the side or as dippings.

Total time: sub 20 minutes, total price: sub 5 euro. Yet your date will be impressed!
