Steak, Chips and Salad

The good ol' Steak, Chips and Salad is one of my favourite dinner meals!  I think the sauce makes the dish very satisfying and my favourite sauces to go with the steak is either diane sauce or pepper sauce.

All you need to serve 2 people:
2 good quality rump steaks
half packet of frozen chips
mixed salad of your choice

for the sauce:
2 onions sliced finely
clove of garlic crushed and chopped
2 tomatoes chopped/diced 
1 pkt of pepper sauce (any brand)
1- 2 tbs of worcheshire sauce
some red wine - i use a glug or 2..or 3...
1 tbs of butter (depending how glossy you want the sauce to look)


Preheat oven at 220C and bake frozen chips are per packet instructions.  You can deep fry this at the end but I prefer my chips baked.

Meanwhile melt butter into skillet, add in onions and garlic and saute.  Next add in the tomatoes and cook til soften.

Add in the pepper sauce, worcheshire, and red wine.  Simmer for 15 minutes and taste.  If the sauce looks too thick for your liking, you can thin it down with some water.  Stir.
Put the skillet aside.

Next oil or butter another skillet and cook your steak to rare/medium or cooked.  Depending how you like your steak.  I like mine just pink in the middle.  Watch your steak otherwise it might end up tasting tough and not tender.

Put the steak on the arrange plates and ladle the sauce over, arrange salad and hot chips on the side (should be done by  now)  and serve immediately!....with a bottle of red.. :)
