Ingredients

  • 1 fillet or rump steak , 300g/11oz, trimmed
  • 140g green beans , trimmed
  • 1 head chicory , leaves separated
  • 25g walnut , roughly chopped

For the dressing

  • zest and juice ½ lemon
  • 1 tbsp walnut or olive oil
  • 1 tbsp tarragon , chopped (optional)
  • 1 small shallot , finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp blue cheese , crumbled (we used Danish Blue)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Season the steak with lots of pepper and a little salt. Cook on the barbecue or under the grill for 2-3 mins each side for medium-rare, or to your liking. Let sit for 10 mins, then cut into slices.

  • STEP 2

    For the dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together the zest, juice, oil, tarragon, shallot, cheese and some salt and pepper.

  • STEP 3

    Cook the beans in boiling water until just tender. Drain and rinse under cold water, then drain thoroughly.

  • STEP 4

    Divide the chicory leaves between two plates and top with the beans, walnuts and steak slices. Pour the dressing over the salad just before eating.
