Steak with sautéed spinach is a simple recipe which you can prepare in minutes. It is best to use good quality meat for better taste. The spinach makes a great side. The garlicky taste and slight bitterness infuse more taste into the dish.
4 (about 125g each) beef scotch fillet steaks
6 garlic cloves, crushed
2 bunches English spinach, ends trimmed, washed
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven at 210C and line a baking tray with baking paper. Season the steaks with salt and pepper.
Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the steak in batches for two to three minutes per side or until they are cooked to your preferred doneness. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Set aside.
Heat another tablespoon of oil in the same pan. Stir-fry the garlic for two to three minutes or until golden brown. Add the spinach and cook it for another two to three minutes or until the spinach wilts. Season it with salt and pepper.
Divide the sautéed spinach into individual plates and top them with the steak. You may reheat the steak and serve it with fries if desired. Serve immediately.
