Peppered scotch fillet with carrot & herb salad

Peppered scotch fillet with carrot & herb salad

Serves: 4  |  Preparation Time: 10 mins  |   Cooking Time: 30 mins

Ingredients:
4x 200g Tasman yearling beef scotch fillet steaks, fat trimmed
2 bunches baby carrots, trimmed, scrubbed
1 large red onion, cut into thin wedges
3 tbsp olive oil
2 x 250g packets microwave 7 ancient grains
2 tbsp pepitas, toasted
½ cup parsley leaves
1 cup small mint leaves
30g goats cheese, crumbled

Method:
  1. Preheat oven 200°C (180°fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper. Add carrots and onion, drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil, season and toss to coat. Roast in oven for 25-30 minutes or until tender. Halve carrots.
  2. Meanwhile, rub steaks with 1 tablespoon oil and season generously with freshly ground black pepper. Heat a char-grill pan or barbecue over medium-high heat. Cook steaks for 4-5 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Season with sea salt and set aside on a plate loosely covered in foil to rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Prepare grains according to packet instructions. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Place grains in a large bowl with carrots and onion and add pepitas, herbs and goats cheese. Drizzle with remaining oil, season and gently toss to combine. Serve with steaks.


Tips:

  • Rump, sirloin or eye fillet steaks would also work well in this recipe.
  • Always rest your meat before serving – this will ensure the juices are locked in and the meat is tender.
  • You could also cook the steaks in a large non-stick fry pan.
  • Swap the goats cheese for feta or ricotta cheese.
