- 350 Grams of Porterhouse Steak (Thick-Cut)
- 400 Grams of Red Beetroot
- 2 Garlic Clove
- 1 200 Gram Pack of Baby Spinach
- 0.2 Cups of Parmesan Cheese
- 2 Teaspoons of Butter (pantry)
- 500 Grams of Sweet Potato (Small)
Prepare Ingredients:Preheat the oven to 230°C. Wash the fresh produce. Remove the steak from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Peel then cut the beetroot in half then into 1-2 cm wedges. Cut the sweet potato. Peel and mince the garlic.
Roast Beetroot & Sweet Potato:Place the beetroot and sweet potato on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, toss to coat. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and transfer to a serving dish.
Start 'Creamed' Spinach:In a large non stick pan or pot, heat olive oil on medium until hot. Add the baby spinach and a dash of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 5 minutes, or until completely wilted. If necessary, work in batches. Remove from heat and set aside.
Sear Steaks:Pat the steak dry with paper towel; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan used for the spinach, heat olive oil on medium-high until hot. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add steak and cook 2-3 minutes before flipping. Flip 3 times for a total cooking time of 10-12 minutes or to your preferred doneness. Remove from pan and allow to rest, leaving any browned bits in the pan.
Finish 'Creamed' Spinach:While steak rests, heat the same pan to medium until hot. If the pan seems dry, add olive oil. Add as much garlic as desired and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the baby spinach, parmesan, and butter. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to plates.
You Plate It:Slice the steak as desired and divide between plates. Add any juices from the cutting board to the baby spinach; stir to combine. Serve with 'creamed' spinach and roasted vegetables on the side. Enjoy!
