Italian Style Beef Steak Salad with Parmesan

Makes 4 | Prep 10mins | Cooking 5mins

This warm, beef salad makes a delicious and light lunch or supper. Our pasture fed rump steaks work really well in this recipe, with a deep, rich flavour, firm texture and a good amount of marbling. Juicy steak nestled amongst salad leaves and dressing makes a simple but mouthwatering dish.

Ingredients

4 x Rump, Sirloin or Fillet Steaks

4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

200g baby gem lettuce

60g rocket lettuce

12 cherry tomatoes

80g parmesan cheese

2 tsp Dijon mustard

Salt and pepper

Method

Heat a griddle pan or nonstick frying pan until very hot, brush the steaks each side with a little olive oil, when the pan is hot add the steaks and cook for 1 ½ minute on each side a little more or less depending on the thickness of the steaks, this will give a medium/rare steak.

Remove the steaks to a plate and allow to rest, reserve the juices.

Combine the remaining olive oil with the balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard with some seasoning in a bowl, add the reserve juices from the steaks.  Cut the cherry tomatoes in half, mix with the salad leaves.

On a chopping board cut the steaks into slices.

Arrange the salad on a plate, drizzle over the dressing and place the steaks on top.

Finally, sprinkle with the grated parmesan cheese and serve.
