Slice through the warm veal to a rich filling of black olive tapenade and semi-dried tomatoes.

Ingredients

Lean veal leg steak

385 g, (buy 480g or 4 x 120g steaks) fat-trimmed

Tapenade (olive paste)

1 tbs

Semi-dried tomatoes

60 g, coarsely chopped

Fresh basil

2 tbs

Shaved parmesan cheese

cup(s), (25g)

Zucchini

2 medium, thickly sliced

Baby spinach leaves

100 g

Balsamic vinegar

2 tbs

Olive oil

1 tbs

Baby potato

8 small, (chat), steamed

Lemon(s)

1 medium, cut into wedges, to serve

Wholegrain bread

2 slice(s)

Instructions

  1. Place the veal on a clean work surface. Spread the tapenade over one half of each piece of veal. Top each with a quarter of the tomato and basil and 2 teaspoons of the parmesan. Fold over the veal to enclose the filling. Secure with a toothpick.
  2. Preheat a chargrill or barbecue on medium-high. Lightly spray the veal with oil and season with salt and pepper. Chargrill the veal for 2-3 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Meanwhile, lightly spray the zucchini with oil and chargrill for 5-6 minutes, turning occasionally, or until lightly charred and tender.
  3. Combine spinach, zucchini and remaining parmesan in a large bowl. Drizzle with the vinegar and oil and gently toss to combine. Serve salad with the veal and lemon wedges.
