Spiced roast beef with slow-roasted tomato, red capsicum and grilled zucchini salad
(Serves 4)

Ingredients: 1 portion of lean roast beef (round eye fillet is a good choice - look for anything with no visible fat and continuous 'lines' of muscle)
Olive oil spray
Curry powder, cumin, sweet paprika and cinnamon
10-12 roma or vine-ripened tomatoes
2 large zucchini
2 large red capsicum, roasted and cut into strips 4 cups of mixed spinach and rocket
1tbsp each of balsamic vinegar and olive oil

Method: Preheat the oven to a very slow temperature (120degrees) and lightly spray a large baking pan. Combine all of the spices together and rub over the beef evenly and place on the pan. Halve the tomatoes and using a portion of aluminium foil to make a 'boat,' place them cut side up and sprinkle with some freshly cracked pepper. Roast for approx. 1 1/2hrs; do not add any liquids or oils to the beef while cooking. In a grill pan, place long, thin slices of zucchini lengthways across the grooves to create grill lines. Once cooked and while still warm - transfer to a large bowl and combine with the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, red capsicum and rocket/spinach mix. Take the beef and tomatoes out of the oven and add the warm tomatoes to the salad. Slice the beef into thin strips, and serve with the warm salad.
