Flat Iron Steak with a Blue Cheese and Onion Salad


  • 1 pkt Inisvale Flat Iron Beef Steaks (300g)
  • 3 Red Onions (240g) peeled, halved & sliced
  • 4 lrg Rooster Potatoes (760g) boiled or steamed, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 100g of Valley Spire Stilton or Deluxe Tipperary Blue

  • 4-5 tbsp Primadonna Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • A small knob of Dairy Manor Butter (20g)
  • A splash of Red Wine Vinegar
  • A pinch of Tate & Lyle Caster Sugar
  • Kania Salt and Pepper


  1. Take a large frying pan and add a drizzle of olive oil. Season the steaks with the salt and pepper. When the pan is hot, add the steaks to the pan.
  2. Cook for 4 minutes on each side, remove from the heat and keep warm, this will allow the steaks to rest and be more tender.
  3. Add a little more (but not all) of the olive oil to the same pan then add the potatoes, onions and butter. Cook on a medium high heat for 5-6 minutes until golden and crusty.
  4. Mix the remaining olive oil with a splash of red wine vinegar, salt, pepper and sugar, along with the juices from the steak and mix the leaves in this.
  5. In a big platter, spoon your potatoes and onions, followed by a few spoons of sour cream. Next top with the salad.
  6. Finally thinly slice your steak and place it on top. Crumble the blue cheese over the dish and serve.
