Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Process mint, coriander, chilli, ginger, juice and oil in a food processor to form a paste, adding 1–2 teaspoons water if it becomes too thick.
  2. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over high heat. Cook beef, turning, for 3–4 minutes or until browned. Place beef on prepared tray and spread with half the pesto. Bake for 15–20 minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover beef with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes before thinly slicing.
