    This is a real feel-good meal, a weekend treat, or a midweek feed. Here in Ireland, we are so lucky to have reasonably priced beef that has enjoyed a largely outdoor life and has been raised mainly on grass. It shows in the quality. Meat is full of high-quality protein, iron and other minerals that feed the body. Grass-fed beef is also quite high in decent fatty acids, as the healthy fats from the grass will actually be stored in the animal fat and transferred onto your plate.


    • In a deep pan with plenty of boiling water, boil the potatoes until they are soft.
    • Meanwhile, slice the onions and add them to a frying pan with heated olive oil to brown over medium heat.
    • You need to stir this often to avoid burning, and you may need to add a little more oil halfway through. This process can take 10 minutes.
    • In a separate pan, heat a little olive oil and start frying the steaks on high heat to seal the meat, then reduce to a hot medium heat and fry for 5-7 minutes, turning once.
    • Cut into one of the steaks to see how well done it is, continue to fry until your preferred level has been achieved.
    • When the potatoes are thoroughly cooked through, drain them.
    • Add milk and butter, season with salt and pepper, and mash well.
    • Keep covered to keep warm. Take the onions out of the pan and set aside.
    • Next, use the pan to gently heat/fry the green veg, or start preparing your salad.
