About this recipe: I just made this up and it was a wicked lunch. The amount of spices used is really up to you, feel free to add more or less to taste. Taste as you go and decide how much or how little you want of everything.

Serves: 4 

  • 2 good quality steaks
  • 2 peppers, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 100g cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 handful spinach, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • oil, for frying
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 lime or lemon, juiced
  • 4 tortilla wraps, to serve
  • chopped fresh coriander, to garnish

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Put two good quality steaks in the oven to cook to your taste. I cooked mine for about 15 minutes on 200 C / Gas 6.
  2. I used my mini chopper (which is like a small blender) to chop all the veg so that the pieces are really small and easy to spoon on, but slice all veg how you want it. I put all of the veg and spices into the chopper all at once.
  3. Throw the mix into a pan on medium heat with a small dash of oil (I used chilli oil). Add salt and pepper to taste and let everything soften for about 10 minutes.
  4. Take steak out the oven. Let rest a few minutes, then cut into slices and add to the pan along with the juice of one lemon or lime.
  5. Once everything is heated through and smelling delicious serve in wraps garnished with coriander.


I actually added the ginger by accident but it just added to the flavour.
