  1. Preheat the grill to high. Place the pepper on a baking tray, drizzle with 1 tbsp oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill for 10-15 minutes, or until the pepper begins to char. Set aside and allow to cool.
  2. Season the rump steak with salt and pepper, sprinkle over the mixed herbs, and then grill for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes and then cut into strips.
  3. To make the salad dressing, mix together the lemon juice, honey, and 2 tbsp olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Toss the steak strips, beetroot, grilled pepper and rocket leaves with the dressing and serve immediately.
