Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the potato into fries. Place on a lined oven tray. Season with salt and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat, spread in a single layer, then bake until tender, 20-25 minutes.

TIP: Cut the potato to the correct size so it cooks in the allocated time.


While the fries are baking, thinly slice the red onion. Thinly slice the tomato.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat. Cook the onion, stirring regularly, until softened, 5-6 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the balsamic vinegar, the water and brown sugar and mix well. Cook until dark and sticky, 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.


When the fries have 10 minutes remaining, place the Italian herbs and a good pinch of salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the beef rump, turning to coat. Wipe out the frying pan and return to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, cook the steak for 2-3 minutes on each side for medium (depending on thickness), or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate to rest.


Place the bake-at-home ciabatta directly on the wire racks of the oven and cook until heated through, 5 minutes.


Slice the seared steak. Slice each ciabatta in half, then spread with the creamy pesto dressing. Top with the sliced steak, caramelised onion, tomato slices and rocket leaves. Serve with the fries.
