One day I hope to recover enough from my accident to open my own restaurant, this will defiantly be on the menu – its that tasty!
This recipe is extremely healthy as well as being super tasty. A selection of salad ingredients are seasoned then combined with cooked brown rice. The steak is marinated in my signature steak marinade, grilled then rested before being sliced on the diagonal and placed on top of a bed of the rice. A wonderful spiced coriander dressing is then made and drizzled over the top to complete the dish. It sounds simple however the combination of textures and flavours make this dish a real winner.
The best thing about this dish is that it is colourful, fresh, flavourful and satisfying yet it is extremely good for you.
