When Sam's housemate Jess gets on the wrong side of a spray tan, Sam knows just what'll cheer her up: a juicy Tesco Finest 30-day matured rib-eye steak, pan-fried to perfection.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Toss the carrots in 1 tbsp olive oil and the sumac on a large baking tray. Season and roast in the oven for 15 mins until almost cooked through. Add the green beans to the tray, toss and cook for a further 5-8 mins until just cooked with a bite. Remove and set aside. 
  2. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a large bowl and stir in the orange zest. 
  3. Heat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat. Season the steak well, then sear each side for 2 mins for medium, 3 mins for medium-well done, and 4 mins for well done. Set aside to rest for 5 mins. 
  4. Lay the carrots and orange slices on a serving plate, then drizzle with the dressing and dollop over the goat’s cheese. Sprinkle over a little extra sumac. 
  5. Slice the steak thinly, then serve with the carrot salad and green beans on the side.

Tip: Any cut of steak will work in this recipe. Choose your favourite from the Tesco Finest range of 30-day matured steaks and cook to your liking.
