Steak, chips with garlic, and rosemary butter

Are you a steak and chip purist with a low-carb lifestyle? This recipe is for you. There is nothing to distract from the flavor of the meat other than a hint of garlic and rosemary. By using rutabaga instead of potato, you can still enjoy this classic dish and stay true to your low-carb diet.

2 servings

Ingredients

  • 550 g rutabaga, peeled and cut into strips
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary
  • 450 g sirloin steak or ribeye steaks, 1 per portion
  • salt and pepper, to taste

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.
