Ingredients

2 x 200g round steaks (about 2cm thick)

1 small broccoli, thickly sliced (keep the pieces large as it makes it easier to handle)

2 cups coarsely torn kale (about 1⁄2 bunch)

1 golden shallot, thinly sliced

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon

Yoghurt-tahini sauce

4 tbsp natural yoghurt

Spiced Beef, Pumpkin And Kale Salad Recipe

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Drizzle pumpkin with 1 tbsp olive oil, season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper and roast on a baking paper-lined oven tray, turning occasionally for about 25 minutes until browned on the edges and tender.
  2. Preheat a char-grill to high. Combine about 1 tbsp olive oil with pepper, chilli flakes and a pinch of salt, brush over steaks and set aside at room temperature while you cook the broccoli.
  3. Drizzle broccoli slices with 1 tbsp olive oil and char-grill, turning occasionally for about 8 minutes until just tender and charred a bit on the edges, then when cool enough to handle, coarsely chop and set aside.
  4. Wipe char-grill clean then cook steaks, turning once, until browned and cooked to your liking (5-6 minutes for medium-rare, 7-8 minutes for medium), transfer to a plate, cover loosely with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes, then thickly slice.
  5. Mix the yoghurt-tahini sauce ingredients in a bowl to combine and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. While the meat rests, combine the kale, shallot, extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice and garlic in a large bowl, season to taste with salt and pepper and mix well with your hands until the kale starts to soften (2-3 minutes).
  7. Toss through the beef, chopped broccoli, parsley, barley and pepitas. Spread a little tahini dressing on serving plates, pile the salad on top and serve.
