  • 1 pack Silver Fern Farms Beef Flat-Iron Steaks
  • 3 cups red cabbage, finely sliced
  • 5 radish, thinly sliced
  • 1 large avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds, lightly toasted
  • A handful of fresh coriander leaves
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced
  • 8-10 soft flour tortillas
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2-3 fresh limes
  • Pickled jalapenos
  • Olive oil

Spice Mix:

  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes


Spice Mix

Combine ground cumin, paprika, garlic powder, chilli flakes and salt and pepper. Remove the Silver Fern Farms Beef Flat-Iron Steaks from the packaging, rub the beef with the spice mix, cover and set aside.

Lime Crema

Whip the cream until it is just beginning to thicken, add the juice of half a lime, 2 tsp liquid from the jalapenos and half a tsp salt. Continue to whip until it has thickened - transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until required.

Pickled Radish and Cabbage

In a bowl toss the shredded cabbage and sliced radish with juice of a lime, olive oil and a little salt. Taste and add more lime or salt if required. Set aside to marinate whilst you cook the beef.


Drizzle oil over the beef and season with salt and pepper. Cook on a grill pan or BBQ at medium-high for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate, cover, and rest for 5 minutes.

While the beef is resting, in the same pan or BBQ, gently toast the tortillas to warm them slightly.

Slice your steaks thinly across the grain. Take a warmed flour tortilla, add a spoonful or two of cabbage and radish salad. Add a large slice of avocado, some coriander and two beef slices. Top with coriander leaves, some chopped chilli and one or two jalapeno slices. Top with a spoonful of crema, a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds and a squeeze of lime if needed.
