For 4 servings

Prep and cook time: 1 h 10 min

Difficulty: Medium

Cannot be frozen


For the turnip chips:

600 g | 21 oz | 4 cups turnips, peeled and cut into chips

2 tbsp olive oil

3/4 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 pinch cayenne pepper

For the steaks:

4 sirloin or ribeye steaks, ~225 g each, trimmed of excess fat

3 tbsp flax oil

2 tsp mixed peppercorns, lightly crushed

1 tsp red chilli flakes

thyme sprigs, to garnish

sea salt


1 For the turnip chips: Preheat the oven to 220°C (200° fan) | 425F | gas 7.

2 Par-boil the turnips in a large saucepan of salted, boiling water until just tender to the tip of a knife, about 6-10 minutes depending on thickness.

3 Drain well and spread out on kitchen paper, patting dry with more paper. Toss on a large baking tray with the olive oil, salt, cumin, and cayenne pepper to taste.

4 Bake for 30-40 minutes, turning halfway through, until golden-brown all over.

5 For the steaks: In the meantime, preheat the grill to hot. Rub the steaks with flax oil. Season with sea salt, crushed peppercorns, and red chilli flakes.

6 Arrange on a grilling tray, spaced apart. Grill for 8-12 minutes, turning halfway through, until the steaks are firm to the touch with a slight spring.

7 Remove from the grill and cover tightly with aluminium foil. Leave to rest for at least 10-15 minutes.

8 Remove the turnip chips from the oven when ready. Serve alongside the steaks, garnished with some thyme.
