Brazilian Beef Salad
Brazilian Beef Salad



  • 1 whole peeled onion
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • 2 tsp tamarind paste
  • 1 tsp each ground cumin and smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 x 125g fillet steaks
  • 400g tin of black beans, drained
  • 175g sweet potato, cubed
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 courgette, sliced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Grate the onion until you have 3 tbsp of grated onion, and set the remaining piece aside for later. Mix 1 tsp of oil, the zest, cumin, tamarind, 2 tbsp coriander, smoked paprika and 1 tsp of water in a small bowl, then smear half of the marinade over the steaks. Mix with the remaining coriander, lime juice and the beans in a bowl.
  • Drizzle a sheet of foil with the remaining oil. Finely chop the remaining onion and mix with the pepper, courgette and sweet potato, and wrap in the foil with a bay leaf to make a parcel. Cook on a barbecue or in a hot oven for 20-25 mins, turning often until very tender. Tip the contents into the beans and toss well, then barbecue the steaks on both sides until cooked to your liking. Serve sliced on the warm salad, and enjoy.
