Beef provides many high-quality proteins that serve the body as a building material, for example for muscle building, connective tissue, skin or blood cells. In addition, red meat offers various B vitamins and easily digestible iron. This trace element is essential for blood formation and thus for oxygen transport.

As a side dish, not only french fries are suitable, but also a large mixed salad and fresh wholemeal baguette. If you don't want to do without French fries, you can easily prepare them yourself in the oven. For this, cut about 800 g waxy potatoes into sticks, mix with 2 tablespoons of oil and a little salt and bake in a preheated oven at 240 °C (fan oven: 220 °C; gas: highest setting) until they have taken on colour and are cooked from the inside.

Additionally, a fresh salad of the season with onion rings goes well with the steak.

Preparation steps

1.

For the steaks, preheat the oven to 120°C / 250°F. Rinse the beef, pat dry, and cut into 4 equal pieces. Press slightly flat. Crush the peppercorns in a mortar and rub over the meat. Sear in a hot pan with the oil and bake in a preheated oven for 30-40 minutes until finished.

2.

For the fries, heat the vegetable oil to 165°C / 325°F. It is hot enough when a wooden spoon placed in the oil bubbles.

3.

Peel the potatoes, cut into uniformly thick wedges and pat dry. Cook in portions in the hot oil and cook for about 5 minutes until soft but with no color. Remove from the fat and drain. Increase the temperature of the oven to 190°C / 375°F. Cook for 2 minutes until the potatoes are crisp and golden brown. Remove and drain well. Season with salt.

4.

Remove the steak from the oven, season with salt. Serve with the fries on a warm plate.
