Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Tip the bulgar wheat into a heatproof bowl. Pour in 250 ml boiling water. Give the bulgar wheat a stir. Cover with cling film or a plate. Put to one side to soak for 20 mins till the bulgar wheat has absorbed all the water.

  • 2.

    Slice the steaks into strips as big as your little finger. Pop them in a bowl. Peel and crush the garlic. Add it to the steaks.

  • 3.

    Measure out 2 tsp of the cumin and add that to the bowl with some salt and pepper. Pour in ½ tbsp. olive oil. Stir everything to make sure the steak strips are coated in the oil and spice. Put to one side to marinate for 10 mins.

  • 4.

    Peel and finely dice the onion. Quarter the cherry tomatoes. Finely grate the zest from the lemon. Juice it. Pick any really thick stalks out of the watercress.

  • 5.

    Heat your grill to high. Line a grill pan with foil. Thread the beef onto 4-6 small skewers. Lay them on a rack in the grill pan. Grill them for 8-10 mins, turning now and then, till they’re browned and cooked through.

  • 6.

    Add the onion and lemon zest to the bulgar wheat. Toss together. Whisk the lemon juice with 1 tbsp olive oil and some salt and pepper to make a dressing. Taste it and adjust the seasoning. Add to the bulgar wheat. Stir through the salad.

  • 7.

    Arrange the bulgar wheat on two warm plates. Top with handfuls of the watercress and the tomatoes. Serve with the hot beef skewers.
