Steak and Parsnip Salad recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 10 minutes

In this recipe, steak is pan-fried until medium-rare, then thinly sliced and tossed with salad leaves, julienned parsnip and an easy peasy horseradish dressing.


  • 250g sirloin steak
  • 2 medium parsnips
  • 150g green salad leaves of choice
  • 3 tbsp. creme fraiche
  • 2 tsp. prepared horseradish
  • Lemon juice to taste
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Peel and grate the parsnips. Combine creme fraiche, horseradish, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Add to the parsnips and toss to combine.

  2. Heat a griddle pan over a medium heat. Season the steak really well on either side. Fry for 2-4 minutes either side or until cooked to your liking, then leave to sit under foil for 5 minutes. Slice thinly.

  3. Arrange salad greens on a plate. Top with parsnips and steak and drizzle with any leftover dressing.

If you like, omit the horseradish and use Dijon mustard instead. Recipe serves 2.
