Rump Steak with Bean Salad and Avocado




  • 2 medium Scotch Beef PGI rump steaks

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

  • Salt & pepper


  • 1 tin kidney beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed

  • 150g sweetcorn, tinned or frozen

  • 1/2 small red onion, finely diced

  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped (optional)

  • Handful of coriander, finely chopped

  • 150g small plum/cherry tomatoes, cut in half

  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced


  • Juice and zest of 2 limes

  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

Cooking Method

  1. Remove steaks from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature.
  2. Make the dressing by combining extra virgin olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, crushed garlic, sugar, cayenne pepper, cumin and salt & pepper. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Make the bean salad. Drain and rinse beans and chickpeas in a sieve under cold running water then allow to drain thoroughly. Place them in a medium bowl along with the sweetcorn, finely chopped red onion, chopped red chilli and chopped coriander. Add the dressing, mix well and allow to rest until everything else is ready.
  4. Place a large frying pan or griddle pan onto a medium heat. Pat the steaks dry with kitchen paper then rub half the oil and season with salt and pepper on both sides.
  5. Place the remaining oil into the pan. When hot add the steaks, pressing them down slightly to maximise contact with the pan. Allow to cook for around 2 minutes, then turn and repeat on the other side.When cooked to your liking remove from the pan and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  6. While the meat is resting slice the tomatoes and avocado.
  7. Assemble the salad on a large platter dish spreading the bean salad all over the dish, scatter the sliced tomatoes and avocado over the beans.
  8. Slice the rested meat into thin slices and scatter these on top of the salad. Serve with lime wedges and extra coriander on top.
