    20 minutes

    Beef is an iron-rich protein source; it also supplies many of the B vitamins as well as zinc. Served in small quantities, with vegetables and grains, lean beef makes a healthy and flavoursome meal.

    Serves: 4 

    • 50 g green beans, sliced
    • 50 g butter beans, sliced
    • 2 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
    • 150 g tinned artichoke hearts, drained
    • 150 g mixed lettuce leaves
    • 1/2 bunch rocket
    • 4 lean rump medallions
    • 1 tablespoon tarragon or wholegrain mustard
    • 1/3 cup Italian salad dressing

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Blanch the green beans and butter beans in boiling water in a medium saucepan for 1 minute and then cool under cold running water. Toss with the tomatoes, artichoke hearts, lettuce and rocket leaves in a salad bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
    2. Preheat a ridged, iron grill pan. Cook the steaks for 3 minutes each side or until done to your liking. Baste on both sides with the mustard towards the end of the cooking time.
    3. Toss the salad with the dressing just before serving and arrange on four plates. Serve with the beef medallions alongside.

    Many older people suffer from an insufficient intake of dietary protein, leading to a loss of muscle strength and impairment of immune function. Including even small amounts of beef in their meals would give these people a big protein bonus.
    • Thirty grams of lean beef supplies more protein than two egg whites.

    Something else. I made my own dressing from mustard, balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil, which gave great flavours to complement the beef.  -  17 May 2009
