A Mediterranean-style steak recipe? On the table in 20 minutes? Hard to resist, isn’t it?

Ingredients

  • 2 x 175g rump steaks, trimmed of fat
  • 150g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Small bunch of fresh basil leaves
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 250g pack Merchant Gourmet
  • Puy Lentils Cooked with Sun Dried Tomatoes & Basil
  • 50g crème fraîche
  • 6 sunblush tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 50g feta, crumbled

Method

  1. Rub the steaks all over with 1 tbsp olive oil and season. Heat a griddle until smoking hot, turn the heat down to medium, then cook the steaks for 1-2 minutes on each side. Set aside to rest and keep warm.
  2. In a frying pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil, then add the cherry tomatoes, most of the basil leaves and the lemon juice. Cook for a couple of minutes to warm through.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the Puy lentils in the microwave for 1 minute or according to the packet instructions. Stir through the tomato mixture, then add the crème fraîche and sunblush tomatoes. Fold in the crumbled feta, then serve topped with the sliced, seared steak and the remaining fresh basil leaves.
