Ingredients

  • 1 whole Beef Tri Tip
  • 2 tbsp Harissa Spice Mix
  • 200g green or butter beans (stalk ends removed)

    Method

    1. Rub the entire beef tri tip with the Harissa Spice Mix.
    2. Pre-heat oven to 200°C and roast the beef for approximately 15-18 mins.
    3. Insert meat thermometer into the beef – it should be 55°C for rare to medium rare.
    4. Let the beef sit for at least 15 mins to rest and settle.
    5. Blanch beans briefly until tender (1-2 mins) in salted water. Remove zucchini flowers, tear flowers and finely slice the baby zucchini using a mandolin.
