Impress Dad this Father’s Dad with this no-fuss recipe from Hello Table!

Serves: 4 | Prep: 5 min | Cook: 8 min


4 beef minute steaks
4 tablespoons oyster sauce
4 Turkish bread rolls
1 tablespoon mustard (optional)
225 g sliced beetroot, drained
2 tomatoes, sliced
4 handfuls lettuce or rocket leaves

Caramelised onions:
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 red onions, sliced
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
2–3 thyme sprigs


To make caramelised onions, heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat then add onions. Cook for 8 minutes stirring occasionally. They should not brown but just soften. Then add vinegar, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and stir in thyme leaves.

If the steaks are too thick, put them between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound with the flat side of a meat mallet until they are about 5 mm thick. Marinate steaks in a bowl with oyster sauce while the barbecue heats. When hotplate is very hot, cook the steaks for 1 minute each side. Remove, cover and allow to rest while you cut the bread rolls in half and toast on the hotplate until golden. Remove from heat.

Spread inside of each roll with mustard and add steak, caramelised onions, beetroot, tomatoes and lettuce or rocket.

Dad wont be able to resist this one! Feel free to add a slice of cheese or a cooked rasher of bacon if the troops are ravenous.
