By James Martin


  • 1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 50g butter, softened, plus a little extra
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • juice and zest ½ lemon
  • olive oil
  • 2 x 200g rib-eye steaks, seasoned
  • 2 handfuls mixed salad leaves

For the chips

  • 450g floury potatoes, such as Estima, King Edward or Maris Piper, peeled and cut into chunky chips
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp thyme leaves
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed


  1. For the chilli butter, mash the parsley into the butter with the chilli, a squeeze of lemon juice, the zest and some seasoning. Chill until firm.
  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. For the chips, toss all the ingredients on a baking tray, then season. Roast for 35-45 mins until golden and crisp.
  3. Heat a good glug of oil in a frying pan. Add the extra butter and the seasoned steaks, fry for 2-4 mins on each side, then transfer to plates. Toss the leaves with olive oil and lemon juice. Divide between the plates, add the chips and top each steak with a piece of chilli butter.
