Straccetti di Manzo - Chef Recipe by Gary Farah and Andrew Wilson



1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
200g thinly sliced eye fillet
100g thinly sliced roasted red peppers
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup Napoli sauce
1 tsp dried oregano leaves
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper


100g mixed leaf salad
1 tomato cut into wedges
100g Kalamata olives
1 Tbs mayonnaise
1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to season

Wood-fired bread:

1 medium loaf of bread of choice



Heat extra virgin olive oil in a non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat.

Add onion into the pan and stir until light golden.

Add garlic and oregano and stir for 1 minute or until fragrant.

Add sliced eye fillet and cook for 8-10 minutes on medium heat.

Stir in Napoli sauce and cook on low-medium heat for 10 minutes.

Add salt and pepper to season.


Mix ingredients for salad in a bowl. Mix balsamic and mayonnaise together and drizzle on top.

Season with salt and pepper.

Wood-fired bread:

Toast bread in wood-fired oven and cut into square pieces to serve. Loaf of bread can be toasted in normal oven, if you don’t have a wood-fired oven.


Serve the salad on one side of a large plate, with the Straccetti next to it. Add the bread last, to avoid sogginess.
