Method

  1. Step 1

    Place quinoa and 11/2 cups (375ml) water in a medium saucepan. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 15 mins or until water has been adsorbed and quinoa is cooked. Set aside to cool.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, combine spice mix, 2 tbs of the olive oil, 2 tbs of the lemon juice and 1 garlic clove in a jug. Season. Place beef in a glass or ceramic dish. Pour over marinade and set aside for 10 mins to marinate.

  3. Step 3

    Heat 2 tsp of remaining oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook onion for 5 mins or until softened. Add garlic and vinegar. Cook for 2 mins. Transfer to a large bowl. Add quinoa, lentils, mint, parsley and feta. Drizzle with remaining oil and lemon juice. Season. Toss to combine. Add beetroot.
  4. Step 4

    Heat a barbecue grill or chargrill on medium-high. Cook beef for 3 mins each side for medium-rare or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Set aside for 5 mins to rest. Thickly slice. Arrange the salad on a platter and top with beef.
