For the salad

  • 400g can black beans in water, rinsed and drained
  • 325g frozen sweetcorn, thawed
  • 1 large red pepper, finely diced
  • 1–2 chillies or 2tbsp sliced jalapeños from a jar, chopped
  • 3 spring onions, very finely sliced
  • 6 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 large avocado, flesh diced
  • Juice 1 lime, plus wedges to serve
  • 3–4tbsp fresh coriander leaves, plus extra to garnish


  1. Mix the cumin and chilli powder in a small bowl, then rub over the steaks. Set aside to marinate while you prepare the salad.
