Patatas Bravas with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Serves 4-6 Prep Time 1 hours   Cook Time 10 minutes   Rated:


Patatas bravas is a popular Spanish tapas dish consisting of crispy fried potato cubes. They are typically served with a spicy tomato-based sauce and often accompanied by aioli or mayonnaise for a contrasting flavor. The dish is known for its bold and savory flavors, making it a favorite in Spanish cuisine. This has the addition of steak to 'beef' it up (pardon the pun) and make it a full meal.

We smashed this in no time flat, you can of course go larger if required, and we think you should! I think it would make the perfect dish for entertaining...but you should give your guests some small plates and a fork to be more elegant than just scraping it up by hand.

Premake the Spicy Tomato sauce, Salsa Verde and the aioli.


Cook the potatoes as per instructions.


Salt and pepper the steaks and allow to rest at room temperature for about an hour.


Cook in a very hot pan drizzled with EVOO, just 4 minutes each side. Rest.


Spread the sauce over a serving platter, add potatoes, sliced steak, dollops of aioli, a good drizzle of Salsa Verde and then finish off with the fresh herbs. Serve immediately. This is great as a starter platter for guests, if not a little messy.


You can pre-make all the components and perhaps only cook the steak right before serving.
