Steak and pumpkin salad

I am all about taste and minimal effort. I am currently obsessed with this steak and pumpkin salad that I have been making for lunches on the weekends and some dinners when it’s steak week in our house. (Yes a whole week of steak, I will do a post one day on how we plan our food in our house and what works for us)

I recently attended a family Sunday night dinner where on the menu was take-away Thai food, which would usually send my macro-tracking self into an anxiety ball of stress however, I came prepared with this pre-planned meal. When I whipped this up and placed my massive bowl on the table (it really is as big as my head) family members looked in disbelief questioning me if I was really going to eat ‘all that‘…. Yes everyone, I really am going to eat all that – just watch me.

Steak and Pumpkin Salad:

What you will need:

  • Lean sirloin steak
  • Broccoli
  • Pumpkin – diced
  • Capsicum – chopped
  • Onion – chopped
  • Water – 50ml
  • Mixed green leafy salad (I buy mixed bags from Woolies or Coles)
  • Masterfoods Smokey BBQ sauce

Method:

Place steak in pan on low heat. Add chopped capsicum and onion to the same pan and allow to fry all together for about 5 minutes. Add water to pan and allow steak onions and capsicum to all simmer together until steak is cooked to your liking.

Meanwhile – steam broccoli and diced pumpkin. For this meal so it’s quick and easy I just pop them in the microwave. Depending how much pumpkin you have 6 minutes usually does it for about 150g of pumpkin in a bowl with a bit of water and cover the bowl with glad wrap.

Once pumpkin and broccoli are steamed and the steak, capsicum and onion are cooked – Fill a bowl or plate with a large helping of salad. Thinly slice steak and now add all ingredients to the salad bowl.

Drizzle the Smokey BBQ Sauce over the top and serve.

Simple and tasty.
