What are we cooking today?

A great source of protein and goodness. Turn a bbq into something a little more gourmet, with very little effort.

Getting started

Preheat a barbecue grill or chargrill on high.


Spray beef with olive oil spray and cook on grill for 3-4 minutes each side for medium or until cooked to your liking.


Cover and set aside for 5 minutes to rest.


Place the butter beans, garlic, oil, tahini, lemon thyme and lime rind in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely chopped.


Add the lime juice and process until just smooth. Taste and season with salt and pepper.


Meanwhile, cook the green beans and squash in a steamer basket over a saucepan of simmering water (make sure the steamer doesn't touch the water) for 4-5 minutes or until tender.


Divide the beef among serving plates. Top with a dollop of butter bean mixture and the extra lemon thyme leaves.


Serve with steamed beans and squash.

Annabelle's tips

The steak and puree is also delicious with a green salad rather than the beans and squash.

If making extra, refrigerate in an air tight container for up to 3 days.
