Ingredients

4 x 200g fillet steaks

sea salt

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

1/4 tsp mild chilli flakes

leaves from 3 fresh oregano sprigs, chopped

1 cup white wine

1 cup tomato puree

1/2 bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped

freshly ground black pepper

Method

Cut the steaks in half and place them between pieces of greaseproof paper. Press down on them with a rolling pin until they're about 1/2 cm thick, minute steak-style. Season steaks on both sides with salt.

Heat oil in a large, heavy-based pan over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute, then add the steaks. Quickly brown the steaks for about 1 minute on each side, remove from the pan and transfer to a warmed plate.

Add the chilli flakes and oregano to the hot pan, then add wine and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon and scraping the pan, until the liquid is slightly reduced - about 2 minutes.

Add the tomato puree, stir, then return the steaks to the pan. Reduce heat to medium and cook the steaks for between 3 to 5 minutes, turning steaks once, halfway through.

Place steaks on a serving dish, pour sauce over them and garnish with the chopped parsley and a good grind of black pepper.

    Neil Perry has done it again. There I was with a couple of good-sized New Yorks last week, thinking of just cooking them up and serving with a nice mustard, and then this recipe popped up in Good Weekend. I simply cut them in half lengthways and followed Neil's instructions - a fabulous meal in no time flat! The sauce was wonderfully rich and the chili flakes gave it a real bite. Confession - I was a bit heavy-handed with the chili but that made it even better....

    Looks great! I'd like to give this one a go. Does anyone have a recommendation as to what I could serve it with?

  • I have cooked this a few times, with crunchy potatoes and green bean. Absolutely delicious. Too easy.
