- 4 sirloin steaks
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 small red chilli, thinly sliced
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 tablespoon of fresh basil, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
Add the chopped chilli, olive oil, mustard, vinegar, garlic, herbs, salt, pepper and a little olive oil in a small bowl, and mix well. Brush the steaks with the dressing well before cooking.
Cook the steaks on a hot lightly oiled BBQ plate or grill for 5-8 minutes on each side before turning, using the juices which appear on the uncooked side as an indication when the steak is ready to turn.
If you prefer the steak cooked rare, then you only need to seal the meat. If you prefer it medium or well done, follow the instructions above and cook for 5+ minutes on each side over a medium heat. If you want a tender and really juicy steak you want to cook it rare or medium rare.
Allow to cool down for 10 minutes before serving to retain the juices of the meat.
Some green vegetables such as beans and artichokes are a great accompaniment with the steak.
