New Zealand Grass-Fed Beef Sirloin on Multi-Seed Crackers Recipe

  • Servings: 20
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 6 minutes

This combination of barbecued sirloin, horseradish crème fraiche and crisp crackers is perfect for entertaining or a pre-dinner appetizer. We used seed crackers (each broken into 2 pieces), but store-bought blinis are a delicious alternative.

Tip: bring beef back to room temperature before grilling.


For the Beef:

  • 2 New Zealand grass-fed sirloin steaks (about 1 inch thick) (Tip: Look for the Taste Pure Nature logo)
  • Oil, for rubbing
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the horseradish crème fraiche:

  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons horseradish cream
  • ½ cup crème fraiche
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

To serve:

  • 1 box multi-seed crackers
  • A few small radicchio leaves, torn if large
  • 1 package snow pea sprouts, green part only


For the beef:

  • 1. Heat the barbecue until hot.
  • 2. Rub sirloin steaks with oil. Place on the hot barbecue grill and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium rare beef. Remove from the grill to a plate and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover loosely with foil or parchment paper and leave to rest for at least 5 minutes.

For the horseradish crème fraiche:

  • 3. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

To serve:

  • 4. Slice the sirloin steaks very thinly across the grain.
  • 5. Spread a little horseradish cream on multi-seed crackers, top with a piece of radicchio and two slices of sirloin steak.
  • 6. Finish with a few snow pea sprouts.
