1 tablespoon Oil, olive, pure

1 teaspoon Pepper, ground, black or white

2 steak Beef, blade steak, lean, raw

  • Preheat grill on high. Place the capsicum, skin-side up, on a baking tray. Cook under preheated grill, about 6cm from heat source, for 7-10 minutes or until charred and blistered. Transfer to a heatproof bowl and cover with plastic wrap.Set aside for 10 minutes (this will help lift the skin). Peel the capsicum and cut into thin slices. Meanwhile, preheat a barbecue grill or chargrill pan on medium-high. Brush asparagus with half the oil, and season with salt and pepper. Cook on grill, turning, for 3-4 minutes or until bright green and tender crisp. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Brush beef with remaining oil, and season with salt and pepper. Cook on grill for 4-5 minutes each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Set aside for 5 minutes to rest. While beef is resting, to make the citrus dressing, place oil, dip, lemon juice, orange juice and mustard in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until heated through. Remove from heat. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Thinly slice the beef across the grain. Place the asparagus, capsicum and spinach in a bowl. Add the beef and gently toss to combine. Divide among serving plates and drizzle with citrus dressing. Serve immediately with garlic & parmesan croutons.
