Instructions

Cook the Quinoa
1
  • Boil a large pot of water for the quinoa.
  • Stir in the stock and quinoa and bring back up to the boil.
  • Cook until the quinoa has doubled in size and the seed has visibly split, 12-15 mins.
  • Drain in a sieve and return to the pot, off the heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Cover with a lid and set aside.
Prep the Veg
2
  • 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 juice 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
3
  • Add the bell pepper and half the onion to a lined baking tray.
  • Toss with salt, pepper, the remaining Mexican spice mix and a drizzle of oil.
  • Roast on the middle shelf of the oven until tender, 13-16 mins.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together the tomato and remaining onion.
  • Season to taste with saltpepper and a drizzle of oil.
Sear the Beef
4
  • While the veg roasts, 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, remove from the pan, cover and allow to rest.
Make Your Sauce
5
  • Add 1 tsp lime juice, ¼ tsp sugar (double both for 4p), the creme fraiche, chipotle and half the lime zest to a small bowl.
  • Season with salt and pepper, then mix to combine.
  • Thinly slice the beef.
Finish and Serve
6
  • Stir the remaining lime zest through the quinoa, fluffing it up as you go.
  • Divide the quinoa and roast veg between bowls.
  • Top with the sliced beef rump.
  • Add a dollop of zesty creme fraiche then spoon over the tomato onion salsa.
  • Serve remaining lime wedges on the side for squeezing over.
