  1. Preheat your oven to 200˚C and place your shallots and tomatoes on a roasting tray drizzled with a little oil, salt, pepper and rosemary. Toss your sliced artichoke in a small bowl with a little oil, salt, pepper and rosemary to coat evenly. Roast all of your vegetables for 30 mins. Turn the sliced artichokes midway when cooking.
  2. Season your steaks and rub with a little oil. Cook in a preheated skillet for 3-4 mins on each side to form a robust char and test for doneness with your finger. Add a good knob of butter for the last couple of minutes cooking and spoon the hot, bubbling butter over the steaks. Allow to rest for 8-10 mins then carve into even strips.
  3. Plate up the roasted veg with some steamed purple sprouting broccoli. This meal is superb with a bottle of red wine served at room temperature.
