Steak Jacket Potato

-2 large potatoes such as King Edward

-350g steak

-½ cup mature cheddar cheese, shredded

-olive oil

-salt and pepper to taste 

1 Brush the potatoes with some olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake potatoes according to your oven until they are perfectly cooked inside and golden outside. 

2 Season the steak with salt and pepper and grill on both sides until your desired doneness. This will depend on the thickness of the steak. Once is ready, let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing. 

3 Once the potatoes are cooked, cut a cross on top and open them just enough to sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Add the cheese and place it back in the oven under the broiler just enough to melt the cheese. 

4 Slice the steak and add it to the baked potatoes. Top with fresh salsa and a good amount of fake avocado salsa.

  • This salsa is really good and you can make it spicier by adding more jalapenos or serrano peppers.
  • All the ingredients play an important role in this salsa, one of them being the tomatillos! They add so much flavour!
  • You can store this salsa in a sealed jar and keep it in the fridge for up to a week. Since it has oil, it could take a little shaking and leaving it out at room temperature to recover the right consistency.
