Italian-inspired warm steak salad

Ingredients

Method

Ingredients

  • 500g rump steak
  • 1kg new season baby potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp basil pesto
  • 1 bag of rocket
  • Handful of shaved parmesan
  • Optional: 1 bag of pine nuts

Method



  1. Remove fat and gristle from the rump steak. Place the steak between two pieces of baking paper and bash with a rolling pin until it’s about 1cm thick – this will tenderize the steak. Season the meat well and set aside. 
  2. Boil the potatoes for 10 - 12 minutes, or until fork tender.
  3. Once the potatoes are cooked, drain and toss in half the pesto. Put aside with lid still on.
  4. Grill the steak for 1 minute each side over a direct high heat on the BBQ. Put aside to rest for a few minutes.
  5. Spread the remaining pesto onto a large sharing platter followed by layers of rocket and potatoes.
  6. Thinly slice the steak at an angle, place onto platter topped with shaved parmesan.

Top tip: sprinkle a handful of toasted pine nuts on top of your salad for extra crunch.
