Ingredients

Red wine vinegar

2 tbs

Sea salt

½ tsp

Caster sugar

1 tsp

Red onion

1 medium, thinly sliced

Peppercorn

1 tbs, black variety, crushed

Lean beef fillet

280 g, (buy 350g fillet)

Extra light sour cream

2 tbs

99% fat-free plain yoghurt

2 tbs

Baby capers, rinsed, drained

1 tbs, chopped

Fresh flat-leaf parsley

1 tbs, finely chopped

Fresh chives

1 tbs, finely chopped

Sourdough baguette

240 g, cut into 4 pieces

Tomato(es)

2 medium, sliced

Rocket

75 g

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Combine vinegar, salt and sugar in a small bowl and stir to dissolve sugar. Add onion, toss to combine and set aside for 30 minutes to pickle. Drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 200°C. Rub pepper evenly over beef. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook beef for 1-2 minutes each side or until browned. Transfer to a baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes or until cooked to your liking. Cover beef with foil and set aside for 5 minutes to rest before slicing thinly.
  3. Meanwhile, combine sour cream, yoghurt, capers, parsley and chives in a small bowl.
  4. Split baguettes down top centre. Open out baguettes and fill with roast beef, pickled onions, tomato and rocket. Season. Drizzle with sour cream mixture.

Notes

TIP: You can use 1 tbs wholegrain mustard instead of peppercorns. In step 2, brown beef then spread evenly with mustard. Continue as per recipe.
