1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp dried garlic

1 tsp ground coffee

1 tsp smoked paprika

2 tbsp oil

2 tsp Dijon mustard

2 x 170g beef steak

1 large sweet potato


1. Preheat the oven to 200C / gas mark 6.

2. For the steak rub: mix the ground coffee with the smoked paprika, dried garlic, 1 tbsp olive oil and a pinch of sea salt. Rub on the steaks and leave to marinate.

3. Cut the sweet potato into thin wedges, toss with 1/2 tbsp oil and place on a baking tray. Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt and oven cook for 20-25 mins, turning halfway through.

4. Preheat a frying pan to a medium-high heat and cook the steaks for 2-3 mins each side for medium rare, or 4-5 mins each side for well done. Remove the steaks from the heat and leave to rest for a few mins.

5. Thinly slice the steaks and serve on two warm plates, alongside the sweet potato wedges and an optional salad.
