  1. Remove the steaks from the fridge at least 10 mins before cooking. Rub with 1 tsp oil and season. Heat a frying pan over a medium-high heat and add the steaks. Cook for 1 min, then add the butter, thyme and garlic clove. For medium steaks, cook for 2 mins each side, turning once. Remove the steaks to a board or plate to rest and cover with foil. 

  2. For the sprouts, heat the remaining 1 tsp oil in a large frying pan. Cook the bacon over a medium heat for 2-3 mins until beginning to crisp up. Add the sprouts and cook for 4-5 mins, stirring regularly, until starting to colour. Add the cranberries and balsamic vinegar, season with black pepper, and cook for 2 mins or until the cranberries have softened. 

  3. Tip the mash into a saucepan along with a splash of milk and warm over a low heat for 2-3 mins until heated through. Season with black pepper and stir through the horseradish sauce. 

  4. Divide the mash and sprouts between plates along with a steak. Crumble the Stilton over the steaks and drizzle with any remaining juices before serving.
