Lamb Rump Steaks with Red Lentil Salad

Fresh, juicy lamb partnered with the textured creaminess of lentils.

Serves: 4
Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 20-25 minutes
Total: 40 minutes


4 x 200g lamb rump steaks

¾ cup raw red lentils

1 small red capsicum

1 small yellow capsicum

3 tomatoes

1 Lebanese cucumber

¼ bunch parsley, chopped

¼ bunch mint, chopped

½ tsp cumin

1 red onion

zest and juice of 1 lemon

2 tbsp olive oil



Pre-heat a BBQ and brush the steaks with olive oil. Cook on one side until moisture appears, then turn and cook the other side. Test the ‘degree of doneness’ by touching the meat - it will feel springy for medium and very firm for well done. Remove from heat and allow to rest, loosely covered with aluminium foil.

For the salad, cook lentils in boiling water for 3-4 minutes to retain texture and colour. Drain and place in cold water.

Dice all vegetables and place in a bowl. Add lentils and chopped parsley and mint.

Season with cumin, pepper, lemon zest and juice. Stir to combine.

Optional: serve this dish with grilled lime.
