    • Total time: 25 minutes 25 minutes

    Serves: 4


    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

    • 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.
