Perfect for when looking to serve up something fresh and wholesome.


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

  • 1/4 small Japanese pumpkin, peeled and cut into wedges

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

  • 1/2 tsp each cracked black pepper, chilli flakes and ground coriander

  • 2 cups coarsely torn kale (about 1/2 bunch)

  • 1 golden shallot, thinly sliced

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 3/4 cup coarsely torn flat-leaf parsley

  • 2 tbsp roasted pepitas

  • Yoghurt-tahini sauce

  • 4 tbsp natural yoghurt

  • 11/4 tbsp each tahini, lemon juice and olive oil


  • 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. 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.  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.

  • 3.

    Mix the yoghurt-tahini sauce ingredients in a bowl to combine and season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • 4.

    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). 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.

  • Tips:

  • 1.

    Make sure the char-grill is hot before you start cooking the beef, otherwise the meat will stick to the grill.  The meat should sizzle as it makes contact with the char-grill.

  • 2.

    Only turn the beef once during cooking to get the best crust and to prevent it from toughening. The more you fuss around with it, the tougher it will get.
