  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Drizzle the vegetable chips with the oil; season and toss to coat. Bake for 40 mins or until crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the salsa verde ingredients in a bowl with 1 tbsp warm water. Set aside.
  3. Put the steaks on a chopping board and cover with clingfilm. Bash with a rolling pin until they’re 5mm thick, then cut each steak in half.
