  • 1 pack Silver Fern Farms Beef Flat-Iron Steaks
  • 1 cup dry pasta, e.g. spirals
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2oz sun-dried tomato, sliced thinly
  • 2oz Kalamata olives, pitted
  • ¼ bunch basil, chopped
  • ¼ bunch chives, chopped
  • 4.5oz cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3.5oz arugula or mixed lettuce leaves
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce


Cook the pasta as per packet instructions - strain in colander and leave to cool in cold water.

Toss the steaks in olive oil. Season to taste. Heat a frypan or grill and cook the steaks for 3 minutes each side. Transfer to a plate, cover and rest for 5 minutes. Slice thinly.

Cook the sliced onions in the pan over low heat until soft and translucent. There’s no need to add oil.

In a bowl, mix the tomatoes, olives, onions, herbs, thinly sliced steaks and pasta; season with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. Just before serving, add arugula or mixed lettuce leaves.
