Barbecued rump steak wrap with corn salsa

  • Serves: 4
  • Prep time: 15 mins
  • Cook time: 10 mins
  • Method: Grill


  • 2 thick-cut beef rump steaks (about 250g each)
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 270g can corn kernels, drained
  • 1 small red capsicum, finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • Snow pea sprouts and warmed tortillas to serve


  1. Brush the steaks lightly with oil and season with a little sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Preheat the barbecue flat-plate to hot before adding the steaks.
  2. Cook on one side until the first sign of moisture appears. Turn steaks once only. Test the steaks for the degree of doneness with tongs. Rare is soft, medium feels springy and well done is very firm.
  3. Remove steaks from heat, loosely cover with foil and rest the steaks for 2 to 4 minutes before serving. While the steaks are resting, mash the avocado with mayonnaise. Combine the corn, capsicum and spring onions.
  4. After the steaks have rested, slice them thinly across the diagonal to give even slices. Spread the warmed tortillas with mashed avocado, top with slices of steak, corn salsa and sprouts.


  • A great all-rounder, rump steaks are good value. They’re lean and full-flavoured and perfect for barbecuing.
  • Best beef cuts for barbecuing: fillet/tenderloin, rib eye/scotch fillet, sirloin/porterhouse/New York, T-bone, rump.
  • Always heat the barbecue before you add the steak. The steak should sizzle as it makes contact with the heat.
