Chef Ray – Green Salsa Steak

A delicious and healthy meal, that looks great to serve up for guests as well as your family. I served this up for my brother and his wife when they came for dinner a couple of weeks ago.

From: Swain, Sarah; Top It Off In (Mar 14) Healthy Food Guide

Serves 4

Salsa Topping

  • ½ cup fresh coriander
  • ½ cup fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • green chilli, deseeded, sliced
  • spring onions, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Rice Pilaf

  • ¾ cup rice
  • ⅓ cup dates, chopped
  • 1 cup chickpeas
  • red onion, diced
  • 4x 120g lean beef steaks
  • sprinkling of ground paprika or chilli flakes
  • oil spray
  • courgettes, halved
  1. Place topping ingredients in a processor and process until a chunky topping forms. Adjust seasoning. Set aside and chill.
  2. To make pilaf, cook rice. Drain and mix with dates, chickpeas and capsicums.
  3. Season steak with paprika. Heat a non-stick pan until hot with a little spray oil and cook courgettes for 2 minutes each side. Set aside. Cook steaks to your liking and serve topped with salsa and with rice and courgettes on the side.

As I had a green capsicum in the fridge I used a green capsicum instead of a red one.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.

If you enjoyed this recipe here is one I published last year:
