Cajun Steak Roll

Cajun steak roll with red pepper mayonnaise and fennel slaw

PREPARATION TIME: 10 minutes Cook Time: 6 minutes


500 g scotch fillet steaks, trimmed

1 tbsp Cajun seasoning

1 cup shaved fennel

1 cup shaved red cabbage

¼ cup chopped chives

⅓ cup mayonnaise

2 tbsp ajvar

4 bread rolls


Preheat a ridged chargrill or barbeque to moderately high. Rub the steaks with the Cajun seasoning and some olive oil. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking. Set aside to rest on a plate for 5 minutes, covering loosely with foil.

Mix the fennel, cabbage and chives together. Mix the mayonnaise with the ajvar.

Place the steaks on the rolls with the slaw and mayonnaise.

Ajvar is a spiced and roasted red capsicum relish, available in Continental delis or larger supermarkets. You can substitute it with finely chopped roasted red capsicum.

For a lower fat option, try serving the steak and slaw in lettuce cups, adding the ajvar without the mayonnaise.

Turn this into a salad by removing the bread and mayonnaise. Simply dress with some olive oil and white wine vinegar.

Save time by using a mandolin to shave the fennel and cabbage.
