Previous
Next

This spicy, peppery marinade will make friends with any cut of steak you prefer… and it’s so good that it doubles up as a finishing sauce, too! It really does bring an awesome Asian twist to your next steak night or barbecue. If you’re in a hurry and can’t wait for beefy goodness, you can skip the overnight marinating.

PREP TIME

15 minutes (+ optional overnight marinating)

COOK TIME

10 minutes

SERVES

4

Ingredients

½ cup Marion’s Kitchen Thai Pepper + Garlic Asian Steakhouse Marinade (use my store locator to find out where to buy) or 1 quantity Thai Pepper Steak Marinade (below)

2 x 400g (14 oz) rib eye steaks

oil for grilling

1 tbsp finely chopped coriander (cilantro)

1 tbsp finely chopped spring onion

2 heaped cups salad leaves

1 tsp sesame oil

1 tsp lime juice

 

Thai pepper steak marinade:

2 tbsp pickled chilli paste

¼ cup white vinegar

2 tbsp light soy sauce

3 garlic cloves, finely grated

1 tbsp finely grated ginger

1½ tbsp brown sugar

2 tsp sea salt

2 tbsp freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp onion powder

½ tsp garlic powder

 

Pickled chilli paste:

1 cup (about 100g/3.5 oz) sliced red chillies

2 tsp sea salt

2 tbsp white vinegar

Steps

Step 1

To make the pickled chilli paste, use a mortar and pestle to pound the chillies and salt to a paste. Stir through the vinegar.

Step 2

In a small bowl, add 2 tablespoons of the pickled chilli paste to the marinade. Stir until well combined. Place 2 tablespoons of the mixture into a small bowl to use as a finishing sauce. Pour most of the marinade over the steaks (reserve a couple of tablespoons for basting). Set aside to marinate for at least 10 minutes or overnight.

Step 3

Heat a frying pan, grill plate or barbecue plate over high heat. Lightly coat with oil. Then cook steaks 2-3 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Baste the steaks with the reserved marinade as they cook. Transfer the steaks to a plate and rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

Step 4

To make the finishing sauce, mix the remaining 2 tablespoons of marinade with the coriander and spring onion. Drizzle the mixture over the sliced steaks. Mix the salad leaves with the sesame oil and lime juice. Serve salad with the steake.
