Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C fan/gas 7. Scrub the sweet potato, then slice into chunky wedges and put in a bowl. Sprinkle over the polenta, dried thyme and 1 tsp oil, then toss really well to coat evenly – this is important to ensure the crispiest wedges. Spread out on a tray (they shouldn’t be touching) and cook in the oven for 25 minutes, turning halfway.
  2. To cook the steaks, season heavily with salt and pepper, then place a large, heavy frying pan over a high heat. Once smoking hot, add a dash of oil, then the steaks and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the steaks. Transfer to a plate and leave to rest in a warm place (or under foil) for 4 minutes before slicing.
  3. While the steaks rest, gently heat the bearnaise sauce with the sriracha stirred through it. Using the same pan the steaks were cooked in, add a dash more oil and carefully crack the eggs in. Fry until cooked to your liking.

FAQs

Can I make this recipe in an air fryer?
You can, here's how. Cook wedges at 180C for 6 minutes, then turn them. Then, turn up the heat to 200C and add the steak. Cook for another 6 minutes, flipping the steak halfway through.

  1. A light dusting of polenta helps crisp up sweet potato when it’s in the oven. It’s not essential but it’s a good trick if your wedges tend to come out limp and a bit drab.

    Next time: You can always add some seasonal greens on the side; just wilt them lightly after frying the eggs in the same pan.
