Summer time is braai time and there is usually a leftover steak that is slowly devoured in little chunks over the afternoon or next day. Here is a great way to turn that left over steak into a complete and very delicious summer meal. It’s so simple and the dressing is fantastic.(2 people) feel free to double or triple this recipe.
What you need
300g cooked steak (barbecued is great)
1 large potato cubed into 2cm cubes
Oil for frying

Mixed greens torn, lettuce, watercress, spinach (your favorite greens)
1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh cream
First do the potatoes, add a glug of oil and the butter to a pan on a medium heat, add the poatato cubes and fru until golden brown, tossing and separating them from time to time. (They have a tendency to stick together). Remove and drain on absorbent paper.
Slice your steak across the grain into thin slices about 1/2cm thick.
Now make the dressing by adding all of the ingredients to a small pot over a low heat and whisk furiously until the sugar has dissolves.
Add your greens, avocado, crunchy potato cubes and steak to a bowl, toss it and then drizzle over the dressing.
It is really good with both hot and cold steak. I have also make it with barbecue chicken breasts sliced up and it is sublime.
