INGREDIENTS:

• High-heat cooking oil (such as sunflower, safflower, peanut, or grape seed oil), as needed
• 450g boneless top sirloin steak, about 2cm thick, trimmed of visible fat
• 140g mixed spring greens
• ½ yellow capsicum, sliced
• ½ orange capsicum, sliced
• 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
• ½ cup thinly sliced red onion

VINAIGRETTE

• 2 tbsp fresh grated horseradish
• 1 tbsp safflower or olive oil
• ½ tsp each sea salt and coarse ground black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS:

ONE: Heat a large grill pan on medium-high and lightly brush with cooking oil. Add steak and cook, turning once, to desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare (internal temperature of 65 °C when tested with an instant-read thermometer) and 7 to 10 minutes for medium (70 °C). Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes before thinly slicing against the grain into 12 to 16 slices.

TWO: Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together all vinaigrette ingredients.

THREE: In a large bowl, combine greens, capsicum, tomatoes and onion. Top with steak, vinaigrette and cheese, dividing evenly.
