This Middle Eastern- style bread salad is a perfect complement to our Chuck Steaks.

Chuck Steak is full of character, in no small part due to the characteristic and sublime lacing of marbled fat running through the cut, which melts as you cook. Take care not to overcook them, they are best cooked to medium rare, leaving a decent amount of blushing pink in the middle.

 

Ingredients

  • 350g
    Mixed tomatoes, halved or sliced depending on size
  • 1/2
    Red onion, very finely sliced
  • 1
    Small garlic clove, finely chopped

Method

  • Throw the tomatoes into a mixing bowl along with the onion, garlic, vinegar and 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Gently mix together and leave to macerate.

    Toast, grill or bake the pitta breads to give them a bit of colour and to dry them out a little. Leave them to cool before tearing them into bite-sized pieces.

    Get a frying pan or griddle searingly hot. Season the steaks generously and then fry them for 2 and a half minutes each side. Remove from the pan and leave them for 5 minutes to rest before slicing them into strips. 

    Throw the sliced steaks, torn pittas, cucumbers, lettuce and herbs into the mixing bowl. Make sure you add any of the resting juices from the steaks too. Toss everything together. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt, pepper and lemon juice. 

    Pile into a serving bowl and garnish with a generous dusting of sumac.
