140g cherry tomatoes

4 sprigs of fresh thyme

2 garlic cloves

100g mushrooms

400g butternut squash

Olive oil

100ml beef stock

60g spinach

2 x 170g rump steak

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tsp wholegrain mustard

Himalayan pink salt

Black pepper



Preheat oven to 160’C

Halve the tomatoes, place on a baking tray, drizzle with oil and place in oven for 15 minutes.

Peel the squash & cut into 1cm cubes. Place the squash in a pan of boiling water and boil for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes add the spinach and boil for a further 1 minute.  Drain and mash with the spinach.

Finely chop the garlic

Slice the mushrooms

Roughly chop the thyme

Season the steaks and fry in olive oil.  2-3 minutes each side for medium rare or 4-5 minutes each side for well done.  Remove steaks from the frying pan to rest.

In the same pan add a little more olive oil and then fry the garlic & mushrooms for 3 minutes.  Next add the balsamic vinegar, beef stock, mustard and thyme.  Cook for a further 3 minutes until the sauce has reduced.

Cut the steaks into slices, spoon over the balsamic glaze.  Plate with the squash mash and roasted tomatoes.
