Beef, eggplant and lentil salad

Beef, eggplant and lentil salad



  • 500g beef rump steak
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 x 350g jar marinated feta
  • 2 x 400g can lentils, drained, rinsed
  • 200g grape tomatoes, halved
  • 100g chargrilled eggplant, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves


Heat a chargrill pan over medium-high heat. Drizzle steaks with oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer cooked steaks to a plate, cover with foil and stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

Drain the feta, reserving a quarter of a cup of oil from the jar. Place the lentils on a platter and top with tomato, eggplant, parsley and feta. Drizzle with reserved oil, season and serve.


  • This is a great dish for barbecues and picnics. You can just throw your ingredients together and cook the steak when you get there.
  • You can use any cut of beef you like in this recipe, but rump steak is rather delicious.
