Method

Give the pearl barley a quick rinse under cold water then place in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water and cook for 30-40 mins until tender. Drain and run cold water over the pearl barley to stop the cooking process. Drain again and set aside.

Remove SIlver Fern Farms Beef Flat-Iron Steaks from the fridge and packaging and allow to bloom at room temperature for 10 mins.

Toss the Beef Flat-Iron Steaks in olive oil. Season to taste. Heat a frypan or BBQ and cook the Beef Flat-Iron Steaks for 3 mins each side. Transfer to a plate, cover and rest for 5 mins. Slice thinly.

Pour olive oil into a large bowl. Add the lemon zest and juice, chilli, Dijon mustard and honey. Mix using a fork and season to taste.

Use a vegetable peeler to peel zucchini (into long thin slices), straight into the vinaigrette. Add rocket (or baby spinach) and basil leaves and gently toss together.

Gently toss pearl barley through zucchini salad and place in a large shallow serving bowl. Top with the sliced Beef Flat-Iron Steaks. Drizzle over the vinaigrette that gathers in the bottom of the bowl. Serve with a side of crusty bread or boiled potatoes.

Named for their unique shape, our Beef Flat-Iron Steaks are removed from the shoulder, and are surprisingly tender and naturally marbled.
