Serve this rustic, homestyle dish as part of a picnic by the river.


  • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
  • 3 carrots, peeled, finely shredded
  • 1 beetroot, peeled, finely shredded
  • 4 x 200g scotch fillet steaks
  • 4 pieces Turkish bread, split, toasted
  • 1/3 cup good-quality mayonnaise*

  1. Whisk 1 1/2 tablespoons oil, vinegar, garlic and mustard together in a bowl, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Add shredded carrots and beetroot. Toss to combine. Cover. Refrigerate until required.
  2. Season steaks to taste. Heat remaining oil in a large, heavy-based frying pan over medium-high heat. Add steaks and cook for 5 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Transfer steaks to a plate. Cover loosely with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Spread bases of Turkish bread pieces with a little mayonnaise. Top with lettuce, steaks and beetroot salad. Sandwich with Turkish bread tops and serve immediately.
