  • 12 wonton wrappers
  • ½ teaspoon garlic pepper or ¼teaspoon each of ground pepper and garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ lb steak 225g, suggested sirloin but as you prefer
  • 1 teaspoon butter 2g, approx
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce approx 4 large leaves
  • ½ tomato medium-large, diced
  • ¼ pepper red, yellow or orange as you prefer, diced
  • 2 tablespoon black beans
  • 5 steam cilantro/coriander leaves only
  • ½ tablespoon lime juice approx
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil approx
  • ½ avocado diced


  • Preheat oven to 350F/175C.
  • Press the wonton wrappers into the holes of a cupcake/muffin tin. If your tin is not non-stick, you might want to brush with oil underneath. Use one wonton wrapper per hole. Note don't use a mini muffin tin as they will be too small. Brush the wonton wrappers lightly with olive oil. Bake for approx 8-10min until they are golden brown and crisp. Set aside to cool.
  • Mix together the garlic pepper, salt and cumin and rub it all over the steak. Melt a little butter in a hot skillet/frying pan and cook for a few minutes each side. (Exact time will depend how well done you want it and how thick the steak is, from around 2-6min per side.) Remove the steak from the pan and allow to rest while you mix up salad.
  • Put the lettuce, tomato, pepper, black beans and cilantro in a bowl. Drizzle over the lime and olive oil and mix. Once partly mixed, add the avocado and mix through.
  • Spoon the salad into the crisped wonton cups. Slice the steak thinly (removing any fat/sinew as you go) and place a slice or two on top of each wonton cup.
