We’re always looking for new easy dinner ideas using beef, and this Cajun chargrilled beef rump steak, with grilled corn, sweet potato wedges and red cabbage slaw, is the perfect late summer meal to enjoy with friends.

Serves: 4 (plus leftovers)

Preparation time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 40 minutes

Ingredients
6 x 150g beef rump steaks, trimmed of fat
3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges 3 tbsp olive oil
11⁄2 tbsp (or to taste) Cajun seasoning
3 corn cobs, cleaned and halved
1⁄4 red cabbage, finely sliced
1⁄2 bunch chives, cut into 5cm lengths
3 tsp white wine vinegar

Method
1. Take the beef out of the fridge to allow it to come to room temperature.

2. Preheat the oven to 180oC. Toss the sweet potato wedges in 1 tbsp of the oil and spread on a lined baking tray. Cook for 40 minutes or until soft and coloured.

3. Rub the beef steaks with the cajun seasoning and cook on high on a barbecue or chargrill pan until cooked to your liking. Remove from the heat, cover loosely with foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes.

4. Brush the corn cobs with 1 tbsp of the oil and cook on a medium heat on a barbecue or chargrill pan for 10 minutes, turning regularly until evenly coloured.

5. Place the cabbage, chives, vinegar and the remaining oil in a large bowl and toss to combine. 6. Serve the beef steaks with grilled corn, sweet potato wedges and cabbage slaw.

* For a milder chilli hit, use less cajun seasoning or for no chilli, substitute with a steak seasoning blend.
