Warm salad of grilled beef ,vegetables and basil pesto

warm salad

Sunday nights are usually a easy tea time treat  for me…the last thing I want to do is spend my last minutes of my weekend in the kitchen, easiest thing… heat up the grill….  

Jazzing up plain beef steaks and making a delicious warm grill vegetable salad is my choice..and you’ll impress all who have the chance to try it!  

warm salad



Ingredients: Serving for 4  

800 g  lean beef steaks : ( 2 thin steaks for each person)  


2 tablespoons dried oregano   

1 tablespoon olive oil   

1 clove garlic, crushed   


1 bunch white or green asparagus   

6 small artichokes   

3 vines of cherry tomatoes   

basil pesto   

Preparation:  Mix marinade ingredients together in a bowl, add beef steaks, turning to coat thoroughly, cover with plastic wrap and leave to marinade in refrigerator for up to 30 minutes.  

Preheat bbq grill to medium/ high   

I used white asparagus, grilling that  first, slicing each one in half..turning continously on grill,  followed by the artichokes,( I pre-steam mine for about 8 mins).   

Next grill the beef, around 2 minutes each side – or until cooked to your liking…finally the cherry tomatoes.   

Arrange firstly the asparagus and artichokes on serving plate…slice the beef into thin slices…cover with a lavish amount of basil pesto and cherry tomatoes on top.  Lightly season, drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.   

Other grilled vegetable suggestions: Eggplant, Zucchini, Red bell peppers.
