Instructions

  1. Boil the rutabaga in salted water for about 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. While the rutabaga is boiling, heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add the butter, garlic, and rosemary sprigs. When hot, add the steaks and season the top sides with salt and plenty of black pepper.
  3. Fry for about 2 minutes on each side for rare and 3 minutes on each side for medium. Turn the steaks and season the other side. Tilt the pan and spoon the butter over the steaks as you cook them.
  4. Remove the steaks from the pan and set them aside to rest on a board or warm plate, tipping half of the butter over the top.
  5. Keep the pan over medium-high heat and add the rutabaga. Season and fry the chips for 3–4 minutes or until lightly browned all over. Serve straight away with the steaks.

Tip

Add a handful of greens drizzled with olive oil for a little color and to make it a complete meal.

    The recipe reads: "1 lb sirloin steak or ribeye steaks, 1 per portion". Is this 1steak for each portion or 1 inch thick per portion? Thanks. I eat ribeyes everyday so I will cook mine the way I like them but I was wondering for others and since I came to this link I figured I might as well ask.

    This recipe calls for 8oz steak per person. It is written in this manner both to help make sure that the macros are accurate and also so that the shopping list will be as well.
