Baking Sheet with Baking Paper
Pot with Lid


Make the Rice
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium, cover, and cook for 10 mins.
  • Remove from the heat. Keep covered for 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Prep the Veg
  • Meanwhile, halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.
  • Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Zest the lime. Cut half into wedges and squeeze the rest.
  • Chop the tomato into small pieces.
  • Season the beef with salt, pepper and half the Mexican spice. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat and its packaging.
Roast the Veg
  • Add pepper, half the onion and remaining Mexican spice mix to a lined baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat.
  • Roast on the middle shelf of the oven until tender, 13-16 mins.
  • In a bowl, mix together the tomato and remaining onion.
  • Season to taste with saltpepper and a drizzle of oil.
Cook the Beef
  • Meanwhile, place a large pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Once hot, fry the beef until browned, 1-2 mins each side for medium-rare.
  • Cook for another 1-2 mins on each side if you like it medium and a further 1-2 mins on each side if you want it well-done. IMPORTANT: Meat is safe to eat when the outside is browned. 
  • Once cooked, transfer to a board, cover and allow to rest.
Make Your Sauce
  • Add 1 tsp lime juice, ¼ tsp sugar (double both for 4p), creme fraiche and half the lime zest to a small bowl.
  • Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.
  • Thinly slice the beef.
Finish and Serve
  • Fluff up the rice with a fork, then stir in the remaining lime zest.
  • Divide the rice and roast veg between bowls.
  • Top with the sliced beef rump.
  • Dollop lime sauce over everything and spoon over the tomato onion salsa.
  • Squeeze over a lime wedge, if desired.
