Prep Time : 0:20 | Cook Time : 0:20 | Total Time : 0:40 | Serving : 4 person.


  • 3 large golden delight potatoes or sebago potatoes, peeled

  • Sunflower oil, to shallow-fry

  • 800g beef flank steak

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) dark rum

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard


  • Step 1

    To make the fries, grate potato into long strips using the coarse side of a box grater. Place in a clean tea towel and squeeze to extract excess liquid. Heat 2cm sunflower oil in a heavy-based frypan over medium-high heat. Fry potato, in batches, for 2 minutes or until crisp, then drain on paper towel. Keep warm.

  • Step 2

    Drizzle steak with olive oil and season. Heat a heavy-based frypan over high heat, then add steak and cook for 3-4 minutes each side until slightly charred.

  • Step 3

    Combine rum, maple syrup, vinegar and mustard in a bowl, then add to pan and cook steak, basting with sauce, for a further 1 minute each side or until glazed. Remove from pan and rest, loosely covered with foil, for 5 minutes. Cook sauce for a further 1 minute or until reduced and thickened.

  • Step 4

    Thinly slice steak, then drizzle generously with sauce and serve with fries.
