  1. Preheat your oven to 200 C/400 F/Gas 6. Prick the potatoes all over with a fork, place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes.
  2. Prepare the salad by placing the salad leaves in a serving bowl along with the cucumber, cherry tomatoes, carrot, sweetcorn and cabbage. Toss to combine and chill until needed.
  3. When the potatoes are nearly ready, heat a griddle pan. Rub the cut sides of the garlic cloves over both sides of the steaks and season well. Griddle the steaks for 1½-2 minutes on each side for rare, 3 minutes on each side for medium and 4 minutes on each side for well done.
  4. Divide the jacket potatoes, salad and steaks between four serving plates. Squeeze the lemon juice over and serve.
