  • In a large bowl stir the marinade ingredients together.
  • Pour into a large flat dish, add the steaks, cover and marinate for a least 20 minutes.
  • Pre heat an oven and cook the fries as per packet instructions.
  • Heat a large frying pan over a high heat, remove the steaks from the marinade with tongs, hold fat side down for 2 minutes, allowing the fat to render a little and caramelise. Lay the steaks flat and cook the steaks for 1 - 2 minutes on either side.
  • Remove from the pan, place onto a plate, keep warm and rest for 5 minutes. Season with a little salt.
  • Meanwhile, tip the cherry tomatoes into the frying pan along with the remaining marinade. Cook over a high heat for 5 minutes until the tomatoes soften and a sticky sauce forms.
