SERVING SUGGESTION: Tortilla chips. Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Cut 2 x 40g wholemeal tortillas into wedges and place on a large baking tray. Lightly spray with oil. Bake for 5–6 minutes or until light golden and crisp. TIP: Minute steaks are very thinly sliced pieces of beef. If unavailable, use veal or pork schnitzels (uncrumbed), flattened to 5mm thick with a meat mallet.
