We are bona fide carnivores in this family. While we're settle for a salad every now and then, it often leaves us asking where's the meat? This was one of those meals that came together without much effort. In fact, I spent more time trying to unjam the blade on my mandolin without severing a finger than I did preparing the entire meal!

There's not really much to say about steak and chips--we've all had it before. The real star of this show, however, is the butter. It's got that lovely fresh coriander flavor with a kick of chilli that is so lovely.

Porterhouse Steak with Grilled Sweet Potato and Coriander Chilli Butter
  1. Prepare the butter well in advance so it has time to chill and so the flavors can marry up.  
  2. Add the unsalted butter, coriander and diced chilli to a bowl and stir to combine. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, cover and refrigerate.
  3. Peel your sweet potatoes and slice them into thin ribbons using a mandolin.
  4. Toss the sweet potato ribbons in a bowl with a bit of olive oil and salt and pepper and place on a very hot griddle. Cook about a minute and a half to 2 minutes each side or until tender and cooked through.
  5. Meanwhile, marinate your steak with a bit of salt, pepper and oregano.
  6. Once your sweet potatoes are all cooked, lightly butter them with the coriander and chilli butter and transfer them to a tray covered with foil to keep warm and grill the steaks.
  7. When steaks are at your desired doneness, lightly butter them and serve with steamed green beans.
