  1. Step 1

    Combine salt and black pepper on a plate. Rub steaks with 1 tbs olive oil. Press both sides in the salt mixture to coat. Heat remaining olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook steaks for 2 mins each side or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Rest, covered, for 5 mins.
  2. Step 2

    Heat the vegetable oil to 180°C in a saucepan over medium heat (when oil is ready, a cube of bread turns golden brown in 15 seconds). Cook the potato chips, in batches, for 5 mins or until golden and crisp.
  3. Step 3

    Melt the butter in the frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 3 mins or until softened. Add the garlic, remaining black pepper and green peppercorns. Cook for 30 secs or until fragrant. Add sherry. Cook for 2 mins or until almost all evaporated. Add cream. Cook, stirring, for 3 mins or until sauce thickens slightly. Season with salt.
  4. Step 4

    Divide the steak and chips among serving plates. Drizzle steak with sauce. Serve with baby broccoli.
