Instructions

Step 01

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Step 02

When the oven is ready, put in the potatoes and the piquillos and leave them in for 15 min or until are hot enough for you.

Step 03

Heat your non-stick pan to medium high and add 2 tsp of olive oil. When it's shimmering hot add your steak. Sear on one side, without moving it at all, until is nice and golden brown on the first side, about 2-4 minutes. Flip and sear the other side until browned. Put it inside the oven for 5 minutes.

Step 04

For the Pan Tomate, holding a bread knife so it’s parallel with the cutting board, slice the baguette in half lengthwise (like opening a book). Slice each piece in half lengthwise down the center. Drizzle olive oil over bread and rub each piece to evenly distribute oil and bake until lightly browned (10 min aprox) When the bread is ready spoon a generous amount of  tomato sauce over each toast. Let sit at least a minute or two so bread can absorb some  of the juices. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle with sea salt, and top as desired. 

Step 05

When the timer for the steak goes off, pull it out the oven, let it rest for at least 5 minutes. Sliced and drizzle with olive oil and sea salt. The meat should have a faint  rose color near the center.
