  • 300g Essential British Beef Frying Steak
  • 2 tbsp Capsicana Mexican Chipotle Fajita Seasoning Mix, plus ¼ tsp to serve
  • 3 tbsp olive oil, plus 1 tsp
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Essential Limes, scrubbed, zest, juice of 1½, ½ cut into wedges
  • 1 Perfectly Ripe Avocado
  • 1 clove/s garlic, roughly chopped
  • 400g can Essential Mixed Bean Salad, drained
  • ¾ Essential Curly Lettuce
  • 1 large carrot, grated


  1. Rub the steak with the spice mix and 1 tbsp oil, then season and set aside for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, mix the red onion, 1 tbsp lime juice and a pinch of salt and set aside.

  2. Scoop the avocado into a blender, then add the garlic, the remaining lime juice, ½ the zest, 2 tbsp oil and 4 tbsp water. Season well, then blitz to a smooth, spoonable dressing.

  3. Toss the beans with remaining lime zest, 1 tsp oil and seasoning. Start to assemble the salad in 4 large shallow bowls, arranging the lettuce, carrot and beans in separate mounds.

  4. Heat a large frying pan or griddle, then sear the steak for 1 minute 30 seconds on each side until browned all over, for medium rare. Leave the meat to rest for 2 minutes, then slice diagonally across the grain, catching the juices. Add the steak to the bowls, then pour the juices over the beans. Heap the lime-pickled onions nearby. Spoon the avocado dressing over the lettuce and sprinkle a pinch more spice mix all over. Serve with the lime wedges on the side.

Cook’s tip

The remaining spice mix is ideal for fajitas, chilli con carne or using on the barbecue. If you have a tub of Cooks’ Ingredients Barbacoa Seasoning in the cupboard, use it for this recipe, instead of buying the spice mix.
