  • 2 x 225g Tesco Finest beef sirloin steaks
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 10g thyme, leaves picked
  • 300g miniature potatoes
  • 2 tsp soft butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 240g bag baby spinach
  • 50ml sherry


  1. In a shallow dish, combine the steaks, 1 tablespoon olive oil, paprika, thyme, and a generous pinch of black pepper. Season the meat with the ingredients, then set it away to marinade.
  2. Cook the potatoes for 20 minutes or until cooked in a pan of boiling water. Drain and cut in half.
  3. In a large frying pan, heat the remaining 2 tsp oil and add the potatoes. Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. For the last minute, add the garlic.
  4. Heat a griddle pan or another frying pan until very hot. Cook the steaks for 3 minutes on each side if you want them rare, 4 minutes if you want them medium, or 5 minutes if you want them well done. Place on a warm platter, cover with foil and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine the spinach and sherry, cover, and cook for 2-3 minutes over medium heat; drain and season.
  6. Serve the spinach beside the steak, potatoes, and a drizzle of the cooking liquids.
