  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 limes, juice of 1 (see tip), 1 cut into wedges to serve
  • tbsp sunflower oil
  • 340g can sweetcorn, drained
  • 2 x 200g packs Essential British Beef Sirloin Steak
  • 300g pack Gran Luchito Mexican Soft Taco Wraps
  • 2 x 25g packs coriander, leaves chopped
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded if liked, finely chopped
  • 100g feta, crumbled


  1. Put the red onion into a large bowl with the lime juice and season well with salt. Set aside, tossing occasionally.

  2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan on a high heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the corn and fry for 5-6 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden and lightly caramelised. Tip the corn into the red onion bowl. Wipe the pan and put back over a high heat.

  3. Brush the steaks with the remaining ½ tbsp oil and season well with salt. Fry until browned all over, for 2 minutes each side for mediumrare, or 3 minutes each side for medium. Remove to a plate to rest for 2 minutes.

  4. Heat the wraps in the microwave according to pack instructions. Add the coriander and chilli to the corn, then toss everything together and season to taste. Thinly slice the steaks against the grain of the meat, then serve with the tortillas, corn salsa, feta and lime wedges.

Cook’s tip

Some limes are juicier than others – use two for step 1 if yours are on the drier side. To get the most from your lime before squeezing, roll it firmly on the work surface with the palm of your hand, to loosen its flesh. When buying citrus, pick the heaviestfeeling fruit for its size – this often means you’ll be picking up the juiciest too.
