Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 rib-eye or sirloin steaks
500g potatoes, peeled and cut into 1cm thick pieces and placed in bowl of cold water
peanut oil, for deep-frying

Marinade

Quantity Ingredient
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for frying (optional)
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Harissa & yoghurt dip

Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoon Harissa
6 tablespoons thick greek-style yoghurt

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
middle eastern-style long pickled cucumbers, sliced

Method

  1. First to make the harissa yoghurt dip, mix the harissa and yoghurt in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. For the marinade, put the cumin, coriander, paprika, garlic and olive oil in a large bowl and mix well. Season with salt and pepper, then add the beef steaks and rub with the marinade until well coated. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the marinated beef from the refrigerator and lift the beef out of the marinade. Pan fry the beef in a little olive oil, or grill on a barbecue or cast iron griddle pan over a medium heat for about 5 minutes each side for medium-rare. Add the garlic from the marinade halfway through cooking. Transfer to two serving plates.
  4. Meanwhile, drain the potatoes and pat dry with kitchen paper. Heat the peanut oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 140–150°C. Add the potatoes and cook for 6 minutes, or until cooked through. Transfer to kitchen paper.
  5. Place the chips on the plates with the steaks, and serve with the harissa yoghurt dip and pickled cucumbers.
