Beef Medallions with Zesty Grain Salad


Remove Silver Fern Farms Beef Medallions from the fridge and packaging. Season with pepper and 1 tsp olive oil. Allow to bloom at room temperature for 10 mins. Salt the beef just prior to cooking.

Bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Blanch beans and peas for 2-3 mins, then refresh in icy cold water. Repeat with sugar snap peas.

Bring the water back to the boil and add the farro, stir and then simmer for 30 mins. Drain, rinse and allow to cool slightly.

Mix together lemon juice, zest, garlic, mint, and mustard in a small jug or jar, whisk until well combined. Season to taste. Drizzle in the olive oil to make a thick vinaigrette.

Toss half the vinaigrette with the farro, peas and beans. Set aside.

Heat a non-stick frying pan on a medium heat. Cook the beef for 3-4 mins each side.  Remove the beef from the pan and transfer to a dish, cover loosely with foil and allow to rest for 5 mins. 

Cut beef across the grain.

To serve, arrange the grain salad and sliced beef on a plate, serve with extra lemon vinaigrette. And sprinkle with fresh herbs to serve.
