Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat grill to high. Drizzle a little of the oil on your tomatoes and season well. Lay the tomatoes on a baking tray lined with foil and place under the grill. Cook for 4-5 mins, then add the bacon to the tray. Turn the bacon as necessary until it is cooked through. Turn off the grill and shut the door to keep everything warm.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Season your steak well and, when the pan is very hot, fry for 3-4 mins each side for medium-rare, then leave it to rest until you are ready to eat.

  • STEP 3

    While the steak is resting, throw the mushrooms into the still-hot pan, fry for 2-3 mins until browned, then move to one side of the pan. Add the spinach to the other side of the pan and cook until wilted. Put a saucepan of water on to boil.

  • STEP 4

    Crack the egg into the boiling water, then reduce the heat until the water is gently simmering. Poach the egg for 3-4 mins or until the white has set but the yolk is still runny. Carefully lift it out with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Serve everything together and top with the poached egg.
