We like our steak on the pinkish side. If you prefer it more well done, turn the steak and cook for a further 2–4 minutes each side.


Quantity Ingredient
4 tomatoes, halved
2 zucchini, cut into chunks
2 red capsicums, seeded and quartered
2 red onions, halved
1 fennel bulb, thickly sliced
1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into chunks
spray oil
4 fillet steaks, trimmed
green salad, to serve

Chilli jam

Quantity Ingredient
400g canned diced tomatoes
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 teaspoons chilli, chopped
1 teaspoon ginger, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to hot, 200ºC.
  2. Arrange the vegetables in a baking tray. Spray with oil and bake for 20 minutes. Toss well and bake for a further 20 minutes.
  3. While the vegetables are roasting, make the chilli jam. Place all the ingredients into a heavy-based saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20–25 minutes until thick and jam-like. Set aside.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan on high. Spray with oil and cook the steaks for 3–5 minutes each side for medium-rare, or until cooked to taste.
  5. Serve the steaks with a spoonful of chilli jam, the mixed roast vegetables and a green salad of choice.


  • The roast vegetables and chilli jam work equally well with chicken, lamb or pork.

Super ingredient: Red meat

  • Lean red meat is a vital source of B vitamins, zinc and easily-absorbed iron. Iron is important for healthy blood, the development of our brain and for improved work performance. Zinc aids the functioning of our immune system. The CSIRO Diet showed how lean meat can be a great diet food. It’s filling and satisfying so you don’t look for a snack between meals. Remember to trim all visible fat from meat. When shopping for meat, look for cuts with the least fat and marbling.
