340g pack essential Waitrose British Beef Frying Steak, cut into 2cm-wide strips
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
Juice of 2 limes
2 tbsp olive oil
2 ripe avocados

  1. Place the steak, garlic, oregano, half the lime juice and 1 tbsp olive oil in a large bowl and toss well together. Leave to marinate for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, skin, stone and finely dice the avocados. Mix with the remaining lime juice and olive oil, the tomato, chilli and chives, then set aside.
