Fresh leafy lettuce tossed with sweet roasted pumpkin, beetroot, beef strips and a buttery balsamic sauce.

1. Set oven to 200ºC.
Scrub, trim and wedge beetroot. Toss with diced pumpkin on a lined oven tray with 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.

2. Halve cherry tomatoes, rinse and roughly tear lettuce leaves. Slice spring onions.

3. Heat a frypan over high heat. Toss beef with 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Cook in batches for 1-2 minutes until browned. Set aside.

4. Reduce pan heat to medium. Add 30g butter to melt. When butter foams, add 1 sachet of balsamic glaze and 2 tbsp water. Simmer for 1 minute, or until slightly thickened. Return beef to pan, toss to coat and season well with pepper.

5. Toss beef and sauce with roast and fresh vegetables. Divide between plates and serve with extra balsamic glaze to taste.

Toss beetroot on one side of the tray so it doesn’t stain the pumpkin.

Only toss the beef once, this will help it to brown.
