  • 2 fillet steaks, approx 150-200g each
  • 3 romano peppers, halved and deseeded
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed, to serve
  • 40g cashew nuts
  • 1 red chilli, halved and deseeded
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus a drizzle to serve
  • 1 handful fresh basil, plus extra to serve
  • 1 tbsp butter


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan-assisted). Use the olive oil to grease a baking tray, and roast the peppers and chilli for 30 mins. Roast the cashew nuts for 5-8 mins, until golden.

Step 2

Blitz the roasted peppers, chilli, cashew nuts, extra virgin olive oil and basil leaves in a blender. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to serve. .

Step 3

Remove the steaks from the fridge 20 mins in advance, and season well all over. Melt the butter in a heavy-based frying pan, then add the steaks and cook for 3 mins each side – or according to preference. Meanwhile, boil the asparagus until tender.

Step 4

Gently heat the red pesto. Serve the steak and asparagus on a bed of creamy mash, with the warm pesto on the side. Garnish with basil leaves, and extra virgin olive oil
