Ingredients: (for one)
For the chips:
vegetable oil, for deep-frying
1 potato, peeled and cut into thick chips
For the steak and egg:
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 free-range egg
Wilted Baby Spinach (to keep the wife happy)
(If you don’t have a deep fry here is the next best way to cook your chips)
Heat a heavy bottomed saucepan, one-third full of vegetable oil, until a breadcrumb sizzles in it. (CAUTION: hot oil can be dangerous! Do not leave unattended.)
Add the potato chips and deep-fry for 8-10 minutes, until crisp and golden. Carefully remove using a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen towels.
Heat the oil in a non stick-frying pan (or on the BBQ). Add the steak and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, for medium, or longer, according to personal taste. Remove the steak from the pan and allow to rest for a few minutes.
Using the same pan (or the BBQ) that the steak was cooked in, crack the egg in and fry for 2 minutes, until the yolk is set.
To serve, pile the chips up onto a serving plate and serve the steak and fried egg alongside. If you need some green on the plate (as mentioned above) place the wilted spinach alongside.
