Donna Hay reinvents a meat ‘n three veg main with thyme-roasted root vegetables, a perfectly cooked fillet steak and a sprinkle of parmesan
Method1. For the three veg: preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Place the potato, sweet potato and parsnip in separate bowls. Divide the butter, parmesan, thyme, a pinch of salt and cracked black pepper among the bowls and toss to combine.
2. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Pile each vegetable into 2 flat piles. Bake for 20–25 minutes or until golden and crisp. While the vegetables are cooking, cook the beef.
3. For the beef: sprinkle the meat generously with salt and cracked black pepper. Heat a frying pan over high heat. Cook the beef for 3 minutes each side or until well browned. Place on a baking tray and bake for 4 minutes for rare and 7–8 minutes for medium. To serve, slice the beef in half and place on serving plates with the three veg. Serve with aïoli.
