  • 2 x 200g rump steaks
  • handful coriander leaves, roughly chopped
  • tomato salsa, to serve


  1. Heat 3 tsp oil in a medium saucepan and cook the onion for 3-4 mins until golden. Stir in the rice and 1 tsp fajita seasoning, then cook for 1 min. Pour in 300ml boiling water and a pinch of salt and stir. Cover and simmer for 15-20 mins until all the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Stir in the beans and keep warm.

  2. Meanwhile, rub the remaining oil, fajita seasoning and salt and pepper over the rump steaks. Heat a griddle pan, then fry the steaks for 2-3 mins each side. Stir the coriander into the rice and serve with the steaks and a dollop of salsa on top.

Good easy recipe for a quick dinner. We also made it in to wraps without the steak and these were really yummy so will be doing those again.
