Steak, Home-Made Chips and Bernaise Sauce

Oh Valentines Day here you are again, as far as I am concerned it's just an excuse to over indulge in food and hopefully receive a lovely bunch of flowers. I actually made this steak, chips and bernaise sauce a few days ago and I'm not really sure what I'm going to make for tonites dinner yet, may even make this again as it his favourite!
This is such an easy and delicious meal to make for your partner, theres not many who don't love a rare steak, roast tomatoes, delicious home chips and indulgent bernaise sauce.

Steak

2 Good quality steaks of your choice of cut
Salt & Pepper
Butter &Oil

Tomatoes

Vine tomatoes or larger
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Fresh Rosemary

Chips

Potatoes
Veg or Sunflower Oil

Bernaise Sauce

3 tbsp white vinegar
1 Large shallot diced
3 free-range egg yolks
225g Melted Butter
Tarragon Leaves finely copped


The first thing you need to do is get your oven on and get the tomatoes in having sprinkled them with sea salt, pepper, olive oil and sprigs of rosemary. Put them on around 180 and cook for an hour.
Peel and Chop your potatoes and get the oil on, rinse and then dry your chips and when the oil is hot enough put them in the oil for around 5mins and then take out and leave to get on with your bernaise. Start by putting the vinegar and diced shallot into a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer until the liquid has reduced by half. Now strain the vinegar into a heatproof bowl and add the egg yolks and put the bowl over a pan of simmering water and whisk together until thickened and light in colour. Now gradually add the melted butter, whisking constantly. Season with  black pepper and salt if needed, then add the chopped tarragon leaves. Now put your chips in for their second fry and get the pan nice and hot ready for the steaks and add some butter and a dash of oil, season the steaks with salt and pepper and when the pan is searing hot put the steaks on to cook. Get your tomatoes out of the oven and arrange everything on a plate and put some bernaise sauce in little pots or dish for dipping chips and steak in. God it is so yummy, I adore bernaise sauce, I want to dip everything in it!
