This week, there are two original recipes on my newsletter which will make Christmas that little bit easier, and taste that much better! My Pork & Pickle Stuffing Balls and my Baileys Biscuits. The stuffing recipe is a great alternative to the traditional sage and onion - filled with pork, apple and chunky pickle, it has a real tang to it and is very easy and cheap to make. My very grown-up Baileys Biscuits have a good whack of alcohol and a delicious chewy, oat bite to them - naughtily moreish!

Throughout December, the theme for my newsletters is, not surprisingly, 'Christmas'! I have 3 great recipes for you this month, from my Grand Marnier Soufflé to Baileys Biscuits. So sign up for free today to get your recipes each week, along with valuable cooking tips for the festive season.

Put a pan of salted boiling water on the hob. Put your large pan/wok on the hob on a high heat. Drizzle a teaspoon of oil onto the steak and rub the oil in on both sides before sprinkling a good pinch of salt and pepper all over. By now your frying pan should be getting nice and hot, so place the steak into the pan and leave it for 1.5 minutes. Whilst the steak is in the pan, give your hands a wash and pop the pasta into the salted boiling water. Stir the pasta and make a quick note of the time as it will take 4 minutes to cook from this point.

After the steak has had 1.5 minutes on the one side it should be really nice and caramelised. Turn it in the pan and cook on the other side for a further 1.5 minutes. This will provide a steak that is cooked medium. For a slightly more well done steak, leave it for a further 30 seconds on each side.

Once the steak has had 1.5 minutes on the other side, remove it from the pan and place on a chopping board to rest for 2 minutes. Whilst the steak is resting, add the butter to the small saucepan and turn the heat on low. Throw in the chopped rosemary which will infuse the butter.

Leave the butter to melt and bubble gently while you check the pasta which should be cooked by now. Drain it through a colander. 

Slice the steak into thin strips and it back into the frying pan it was cooked in. Add roughly half the pasta and then pour over the melted butter. Stir thoroughly then add in the remaining pasta and stir again ensuring everything is coated with the butter.

To serve, simply divide between two pasta bowls or plates.

I hope that you enjoy it.
