Rub the steak in oil and season with salt and coarsely ground black pepper.

Pre-heat the grill, place the steak for 7- 8 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Leave aside to rest in a warm place.

For the mixed vegetables, boil the vegetables separately in a pan of salted water except for the mushroom, until tender. Drain then sauté with butter and season with salt and pepper. Set aside to keep warm.

For the potatoes heat the oven to 200 degrees C.

Wash and pat dry the potatoes and add them to a large bowl. If there are any large ones, you can cut them in half. Add the olive oil, minced garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Toss the potatoes making sure to coat them well with the herbs and oil. Place them onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes, gently moving them around on the pan halfway through cooking. Serve at once garnished with more fresh rosemary and a drizzle of olive oil.

For the sauce, over medium high heat, add enough olive oil to coat a pan. Add the shallots and cook until translucent.

Add the red wine and the stock and reduce by half.

Add the butter and chopped rosemary.
