Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

The cauliflower is roasted until it starts to caramelise, which adds extra depth of flavour to this winning salad. Serve it warm or at room temperature.

Melbournes finest meet Worlds Best

Leading chefs descend on Melbourne in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. We asked local hospitality folk who they’d abduct for the day and where they’d take them to show off their city. There may be coffee, there may be culture, but in the end it’s cocktails.

1980s recipes

Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.

All Star Yum Cha

What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.

Korean grilled beef sandwich with pajori


A little gochujang - Korean chilli paste - in the mayonnaise goes a long way in this dish. It certainly spices up a simple steak sandwich, and the addition of pajori, a traditional Korean spring onion salad, keeps things fresh. Start this recipe a day ahead to marinate the beef.

You'll need

60 ml (¼ cup) soy sauce ½ small Williams pear, peeled, cored, coarsely chopped 1 tbsp rice wine 2 tsp caster sugar 1 tsp sesame oil 2 garlic cloves, crushed 15 gm ginger, grated 2 sirloin steaks (200gm each) 1 tbsp grapeseed oil 8 thick slices crusty white bread 4-8 baby gem lettuce leaves, to serve 1 Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced 150 gm kimchi coarsely chopped   Gochujang mayonnaise 200 gm Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise 50 gm gochujang (Korean chilli paste)   Pajori 4 spring onions, ends trimmed, cut into julienne 1 tbsp rice vinegar 1 tsp fish sauce 1 tsp caster sugar 1 tsp sesame oil 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds

Method

  • 01
  • Combine soy sauce, pear, rice wine, sugar, sesame oil, garlic and ginger in a bowl, add steaks, turn to coat and refrigerate overnight to marinate. Brush excess marinade from beef and set aside.
  • 02
  • For gochujang mayonnaise, mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside until required.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 170C. Heat a char-grill or large frying pan over medium-high heat, brush beef with grapeseed oil and cook until medium-rare (3-4 minutes each side). Transfer to oven on an oven tray and turn occasionally until cooked medium (3-4 minutes), then roughly slice.
  • 04
  • For pajori, combine ingredients in a bowl, and set aside.
  • 05
  • To serve, spread gochujang mayonnaise generously over bread, then top half the slices with lettuce, cucumber, kimchi and beef, and season to taste, finish with pajori and sandwich with remaining bread.
