  1. Step 1

    Place potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl. Add ¼ cup (60ml) water. Cover and cook in the microwave on high for 6-8 mins or until potatoes are tender.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, season steaks. Spread the pesto evenly over one side of each steak. Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan on a large plate. Coat both sides of each steak in the breadcrumb mixture, firmly pressing to stick. Shake off excess.

  3. Step 3

    Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Lightly spray with olive oil spray. Cook the steaks for 1-2 mins each side or until golden and crisp. Transfer to a plate and loosely cover with foil to keep warm.

  4. Step 4

    Add oil and butter to the pan. Use a spatula to slightly flatten each potato. Add to pan. Cook, turning occasionally, for 5-10 mins or until the potatoes are crisp and golden. Season well.

  5. Step 5

    Divide steaks among serving plates. Serve with the potatoes, zucchini, extra parmesan and lemon wedges.

Recipe tip

Use it up:
 Use leftover breadcrumbs to make our Crumbed Fish recipe. Serve any leftover potatoes or zucchini on the side.

Clever storage: To keep leftover pesto fresh, store it in a screw-top jar with a thin layer of oil over the surface. Place in the fridge for up to 4 days.
