A vibrant salad packed with yellow and red peppers, colorful onion, beef cooked to your liking and healthy grains.


  • 85g pearl barley, rinsed
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into strips
  • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and cut into strips
  • 1 red onion, cut into 8 wedges, leaving root intact
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus a little extra
  • 1 large lean steak, around 300g, trimmed of any excess fat
  • ½ x 100g bag watercress, roughly chopped
  • juice ½ lemon, plus wedges to serve (optional)


Step 1

Put the pearl barley in a large pan of water. Bring to the boil and cook vigorously for 25-30 mins or until tender. Drain thoroughly and transfer to a bowl.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat oven to 200C/ 180C fan/gas 6. Put the peppers on a baking tray with the onion wedges, toss in 1 tbsp olive oil and roast for about 20 mins until tender.

Step 3

While the peppers are roasting, rub the steak with a little bit of oil and season. Cook in a non-stick frying pan for 3-4 mins each side, or to your liking. Set aside to rest for a few mins. Mix the cooked peppers and onions into the barley. Stir though the watercress, lemon juice and some seasoning. Thinly slice the steaks, place on top of the salad and serve with lemon wedges, if you like.
