Mexican steak salad with beans & sweetcorn


Pack of 2 essential Waitrose Sweetcorn
Pack of 2 essential Waitrose British Beef Rump Steak (about 440g)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Discovery Mexican Taco Seasoning Mix
Juice of 1 lime
1 essential Waitrose Romaine Heart, leaves separated and roughly torn
400g can essential Waitrose Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
6 salad onions, thinly sliced
Handful coriander leaves

• Barbecue or griddle • 2 of your 5 a day


1. Cook the sweetcorn cobs in a large pan of boiling water for 5 minutes then drain.

2. Meanwhile, brush the steaks with a little of the oil and season with the spice mix. Heat a large griddle pan or non-stick frying pan and cook the steaks for 2 - 3 minutes on each side until well browned, but still a little pink in the centre. Transfer to a warm plate and leave to rest.

3. Mix together the remaining oil and lime juice and brush a little over the corn. Cook in the hot griddle pan for 5 minutes, turning until nicely marked. Remove from the heat then, holding the corn upright, use a large knife to slice off the kernels.

4.Place the kernels on a large serving platter with the lettuce, beans and salad onions, sliced steaks and coriander leaves. Drizzle over the remaining lime dressing. Serve warm.
