Chef Ray – Seared Beef with Beet & Pepita Salad

Qwik and easy to prepare, this is a flavoursome and delicious meal.

From: Ray, Kerrie; (Nov 2021) Get Stuffed in: Australian Healthy Food Guide

Serves 4

  • 600g beef rump steak
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large carrot, coarsely grated
  • 250g peeled and cooked beetroots, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 60g baby rocket
  • ¼ cup pepitas, toasted
  • 1½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • 100g reduced-fat plain yoghurt
  • 2 teaspoons horseradish cream or Dijon mustard
  • 4 wholemeal pita pockets, halved
  1. Rub beef with thyme and 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a frying pan over high heat. Add beef and cook for 3-4 minutes each side or until browned and cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate, cover loosely with foil and rest for 5 minutes. Trim fat from beef before thinly slicing.
  2. Meanwhile, place carrot, beetroot, dill, rocket, pepitas, lemon juice and remaining oil in a salad bowl, tossing to combine.
  3. Place yoghurt, horseradish and 1 tablespoon water in a samll bowl, mixing well to combine.
  4. Add beef slices to salad, tossing to combine. Divide beef salad among pita pockets, then serve drizzled with yoghurt and horseradish sauce.

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.
