Method

Before You Begin

Prepare your ingredients & cooking utensils: Use a chopping board and lay all the ingredients out. Take out any “Pantry Items”. Before you begin, bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil for use in Step 1.

Washing Instruction

Wash your hands, baby potatoes, plum tomato, lemon and green beans well. Rinse your Italian flat-leaf parsley thoroughly and drain on paper towel.

Mariella's Tip

Did you know that eggs contain dietary cholesterol, but this does NOT raise blood cholesterol.

Step 1 - Boiled Eggs and Potatoes

Once your medium saucepan of water comes to the boil add your eggs and cook for 7 minutes. Once cooled cut into quarters and set aside till later. Cook your chunked potatoes in a second medium saucepan of salted water for 10-12 minutes until soft. Remove with a slotted spoon.

Step 2 - Nicoise Salad Base and Dressing

Mix your black olives, diced plum tomato, sliced red onion and chopped capers in a medium mixing bowl. Cover with cling film and refrigerate. Whisk together your lemon zest, juice and chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley. Add a good few glugs of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. I always add a hint of sweetness with some sugar/sweetener, just to offset the tartness slightly. Remember a basic vinaigrette/dressing is 1 part vinegar/acid to 3 parts oil.

Step 3 - Green Beans and Coffee Sirloin

Heat a large frying pan over med-high heat, add a glug of olive oil and fry your green beans for 4-5 minutes until just about tender. Transfer to a plate and season with salt and pepper. Season your sirloin steaks with salt and pepper and rub with your DailyDish Coffee Rub. Using the same pan you used for your green beans, fry your steaks for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked to desired doneness. Your coffee rub should attain a nice dark sear, just be wary of this and if you have to turn your steak more readily then do so. Alternately, you could give your meat colour on both sides and then reduce your heat to low to finish your steak off.

To Serve

Mix your chunked potatoes and green beans into your salad base and divide amongst your servings. Top with your boiled egg quarters and homemade lemon dressing. Serve with your coffee-rubbed sirloin, whole or sliced.
