- 600 g sirloin of beef
- 500 g courgettes
- 300 g beets
- extra virgin olive oil
For the recipe for the beef sirloin with sautéed beets and zucchini cream, wash the zucchini, remove the ends and the central part with the seeds. Keep only the green part. Boil them in salted boiling water for 6-7 minutes, cool them in cold water, drain and blend them with a tablespoon of vinegar, 2 mint leaves and a pinch of salt.
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil and 2 crushed cloves of garlic in a saucepan for one minute. Remove the garlic and mix the oil with the zucchini cream.
For the chard: peel and sauté them in a pan with a drizzle of oil for half a minute, just to dry them, but keeping the beautiful bright green color.
For the sirloin: salt and pepper the meat. Brown it in a pan with 4 tablespoons of oil for about 4-5 minutes, turning it on both sides, until it is well browned. Remove it from the pan and remove the oil. Clean the pan and melt 2 knobs of butter in it with a tablespoon of oil, a sprig of rosemary and a little thyme. Add the meat again and cook for another 4 minutes, turning it on both sides and sprinkling it continuously with the cooking fat. Finally remove it from the pan and let it rest for 5 minutes.
Slice the sirloin and serve with the chard and the zucchini cream, garnish as desired with salad and edible flowers.
