Fire-grilled steak

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 rump steak (500g)
  • salt and pepper
  • 5 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium bulbs fennel, cored, cut lengthwise into 1,5cm-thick slices
  • 1 large red onion (200g to 300g), cut into 0,5cm-thick rounds
  • ½ cup fresh mint leaves
  • ½ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 3 tbsp red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp capers, rinsed and drained
  • 1 small clove garlic, crushed

Recipe Directions

  1. Prepare a braai or Weber for cooking on medium heat. Sprinkle steak with ¼ teaspoon each salt and freshly ground black pepper to season both sides. Use 2 teaspoons oil to brush both sides of fennel and onion slices; sprinkle with ⅛ teaspoon salt.
  2. Braai or grill steak for 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare or until cooked as desired, turning over once. Grill onion alongside steak for 7 to 9 minutes or until tender. Transfer steak to a cutting board; let it rest for 10 minutes. Transfer onion to a bowl.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the vinaigrette, finely chop mint and parsley; place in medium-sized bowl with vinegar, capers, garlic, 1 tablespoon water and remaining 3 teaspoons oil. Stir to blend.
  4. Place fennel on grill. Cover; cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until browned, turning over once. Toss with onion.
  5. Thinly slice steak. Serve with fennel, onion and vinaigrette.
