Ingredients

  • 1 pack Silver Fern Farms Beef Flat-Iron Steaks
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 2 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground chipotle powder
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 6 slices crusty bread
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup watercress, stalks removed
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 2 pieces grilled red bell pepper
  • dill pickles (optional)

Method

Bloom the meat
Remove the Silver Fern Farms Beef Flat-Iron Steaks from packaging and set aside to bloom before cooking.

Make the spice rub
Oil and season the steaks. In a small bowl mix the garlic, coriander, cumin, onion powder and chipotle powder together. Use half to rub onto the Beef Flat-Iron Steaks. Mix the remainder spice mix into the mayonnaise and refrigerate until needed.

Cook the meat
Heat a skillet, frying pan or BBQ plate pan on moderate to high heat. Grill the beef steaks for 3 minutes on each side (for medium-rare)

Give it a rest
Remove the steaks from the pan. Rest for 5 minutes, covered with foil. Slice across the grain for maximum tenderness.

Grill the bread 
Heat a skillet, frying pan or grill plate pan on moderate to high heat. Gently rub bread slices with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, lay slices on the grill and top with Swiss cheese. Once the bread is browned and the cheese has melted, remove from heat.

Serve it up:
Top two of the toasted cheese melts with watercress, red onion, bell pepper, spicy mayonnaise and sliced steaks. Top with the remaining toasted bread cheese side down. Add dill pickles.
