Summer steak with tomato salad

Summer steak with tomato salad




  • 400g rump steak or eye fillet steak
  • 4 handfuls of lettuce
  • 3 ripe tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers, peeled and sliced
  • ½ cup good quality egg mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard


If you are using rump steak, place it on a sturdy chopping board or clean bench and give it a good bash. If using eye fillet, cut it into pieces 1-2 cm thick. Heat a non-stick frypan to high heat and cook the steak for about 3 minutes on each side (or as preferred). Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and leave to rest while you assemble the salad.

Arrange lettuce on plates, top with tomatoes and cucumber. Combine mayo and mustard in a small bowl. Trim any fat off steak and slice thinly. Place steak on top of salad, drizzle with any juices and top with mustard mayo.


  • As an alternative to the mustard mayo, use horseradish cream or just plain mayonnaise for the kids.
  • Eye fillet steak is expensive, but you don’t need kilograms of the stuff. It is also very tender – thin slices are easy for the kids to chew.
