In our little village, the neighbours like to bring fresh produce around to the house as and when it gets harvested. This week we had Virgin olive Oil from this year’s press from Manuel and tomatoes and garlic from Maria, who also gave us this recipe. It is very quick and simple but makes the most of the local fresh produce.
Serves 2, 30mins
2 large steaks
150g Baby Plum Tomatoes
6 cloves garlic – chopped
75ml Virgin olive oil
1 Tbls Dijon mustard
Salt & Pepper to taste
Parsley to garnish (fresh or dried)
Halve the tomatoes and place in roasting tray with garlic and olive oil. Bake in med oven for 15-20 minutes 170C
Meanwhile quarter the mushrooms and place in a saucepan on a medium heat with a little water and the Dijon Mustard, stirring occasionally.
Season the steak with salt and pepper. Heat the butter in a large frying pan and fry the steaks for 2-4 minutes on each side depending on your preference (2 mins rare, 4 mins well done) leave to rest for 5 mins.
While the meat is resting take out the tomatoes and sprinkle with chopped parsley
Serve and enjoy
