  1. Cook veggies Preheat oven to 230°C. Dice carrot 2cm, then toss on a lined oven tray with pumpkin, first measure of Moroccan spice mix and a drizzle of oil. Season and cook for about 25 minutes, until tender.
  2. Prep loaf Dice Turkish loaf 2cm, then toss in a medium bowl with a drizzle of oil. When veggies have 5 minutes remaining, place loaf pieces (croutons) to one side of the tray and cook for 5 minutes, till golden and crispy.
  3. Prep beef steaks Pat beef steaks dry. Add to a medium bowl with remaining Moroccan spice mix, ½ tsp salt and a drizzle of oil. Combine to coat steaks and set aside.

  5. Cook beef steaks Heat a large fry-pan on a medium-high heat. Cook steaks for 3-4 minutes each side for medium (depending on thickness), or until cooked to your liking. Set aside, covered, to rest for 5 minutes. Slice thinly and reserve any resting juices. Alternatively, cook steaks on your BBQ grill as per step 5.
