Ingredients

Balsamic vinegar

¼ cup(s), (60ml)

Lean beef rump steak

400 g, (Buy 500g), fat trimmed

Beef stock, liquid, salt-reduced

½ cup(s), (125 ml)

Reduced fat oil spread

1 tsp

Baby carrot

8 individual, halved lengthways (1 bunch)

Asparagus

2 bunch(es), halved crossways

Broccolini

1 bunch(es), halved lengthways

Garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

Fresh thyme

1 tbs, plus extra to serve

Oil spray

2 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Pour vinegar into a shallow dish. Add beef and turn to coat. Cover and place in fridge for 20 minutes.
  2. Remove beef from vinegar. Transfer vinegar to a small saucepan with stock and bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes or until sauce has reduced by half (see note).
  3. Lightly spray a chargrill or barbecue with oil and preheat over high heat. Cook beef for 2–3 minutes each side 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.
  4. Meanwhile, melt spread in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook carrots with 2 tablespoons water, stirring, for 5 minutes or until tender. Add asparagus, broccolini, garlic and thyme and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes until vegetables are just tender.
  5. Drizzle beef with sauce and serve with vegetables and extra thyme.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Crusty wholegrain bread. TIPS: When using leftover marinade to make a sauce it must always be boiled to kill any bacteria from the raw meat. Add it: 1 tbs pine nuts sprinkled to serve. Swap it: Beef for skinless lean chicken breast fillets (halved).
