One to try

Roast beef and alfalfa salad

10 mins to prepare. 5 mins to cook.

Serves 4

For a special salad, grill some lean fillet or sirloin steak to your liking, cut into strips and serve warm.


1. Cut the roast beef into thin strips.

2. Rinse the salad leaves and alfalfa sprouts, dice the tomatoes and cut the olives into quarters. Finely slice the red onion, rinsing it under cold water if a milder flavour is preferred.

3. Heat a non-stick frying pan to a high heat and add the bacon bits. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp, golden and cooked through. Remove and drain on absorbent kitchen paper.

4. Combine the beef, hot bacon bits and all the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and squeeze over the lemon juice. Toss gently to dress the salad. Serve with rye bread.

Note: To cut down on salt and fat remove lardons.

Sounds delicious, looks it too and for people like myself seems easy to make and eat. Guess I could buy the stir fry strips of beef to make this one. Thanks for that

Looks scrumptious Stone, but alfalfa sprouts for people with Lupus is a definite no-no - it can cause flareups (source taken from Lupus UK)



Very informative, learning all the time.

Thank you.
