Prepare Ahead

Preheat the oven to 220°C (425°F/Gas 7).


  1. 1

    Place the beetroot in a roasting tin, drizzle with oil, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Wrap each beetroot in kitchen foil and bake for 40 minutes, or until the beetroot is easily pierced with a knife. Allow to cool, then trim, remove the skin, and cut into eighths.

  2. 2

    Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. Rub the beef with oil and salt, and coat each side well with coarsely ground black pepper. Sear the beef on both sides, then transfer to a baking dish and roast for 15–20 minutes. If serving cold, allow to cool, wrap tightly in cling film, and chill.

  3. 3

    Lower the oven to 200°C (400°F/Gas 6). Toss the walnuts in honey, salt, and sugar, and place on a baking tray, spaced evenly apart. Bake for 3 minutes, then remove from the oven and quickly place on to a cool tray.

  4. 4

    When ready to serve, lightly toss the rocket in oil and vinegar, arrange in a serving bowl, and scatter over the beetroot, walnuts, and chives. Slice the beef thinly and add to the salad.

  5. 5
