Beef Medallions with Zesty Grain Salad

Remove the Silver Fern Farms Beef Medallions from the fridge and packaging. Season with freshly cracked pepper and 1 teaspoon olive oil. Allow to rest at room temperature for 10 minutes. Salt the meat just prior to cooking.

Bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Blanch beans and peas for 2-3 minutes, 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 minutes. 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 Silver Fern Farms Beef Medallions for 3-4 minutes each side.  Remove the beef from the pan and transfer to a dish, cover loosely with foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes. 

Cut Silver Fern Farms Beef Medallions across the grain.

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