How to make Irish Steak and Chips

There are few meals more hearty, filling and enjoyable than steak and chips.

Irish chef Donal Skehan has produced a video to demonstrate how he likes to cook the popular dinner.

Steak and Chips recipe

As Donal says in the opening line of the video: “Steak and chips is an absolute classic and one that everyone should know how to make.”

First of all, Donal shows us how he like to cook his chips. It is perfectly simple, he just peels and slices his potatos, places them in an oven tray and seasons with salt and pepper and a light drizzle of oil.

Next up is his béarnaise sauce which is made by mixing the reduction of white wine vinegar, white wine, shallots, mixed, tarragon and parsley.

That reduction is added to a blender with an egg yolk, a little splash of water, and melted butter.

The sauce is then seasoned further with chopped tarragon, a pinch of cayenne pepper and some white pepper.

The last thing on the menu is the steaks themselves. Donal seasons them with salt, pepper and oil and gently fries them for a few minutes on either side.

Once Donal pus the whole dish together is looks absolutely mouth-watering, and is sure to have to thinking about your next steak and chips dinner.

Take a look for yourself.
