BBQ Flank Steak

This dish is great for sharing and allows the steak to shine!

1 kg flank steak
1/3 cup grapeseed or rice bran oil
2 tablespoons “Herbies” Brazillian Spice Mix
2 limes cut into wedges


To Serve

1 Iceberg Lettuce washed and leaves separated into cups.
1/3 cup coriander leaves (optional)
2 shallots sliced
1 red chilli finely chopped
1 pickled red onion



Set the BBQ to very high. Score the steak. (shallow cuts are made into the surface of the steak to allow heat and seasoning to penetrate. Rub the oil and spices well onto both sides on the meat.


Use a brush to paint the metal bars of the BBQ. Place the steak on the high heat & open bars. Leave the meat for 2 minutes. Then remove the meat to cook over low heat to just finish cooking. (other side of the BBQ) for a couple of minutes with lid down




Remove from BBQ and rest the meat for 10 -15 minutes covered with foil. Using a sharp knife cut very thinly across the grain.




It helps to make the meat as tender as possible as it releases the muscle fibres.


To Serve

Serve steak in lettuce cups with parsley, coriander, chilli & shallot & lime wedges.

Mix ½ cup of mayonnaise and mix with a teaspoon of the Brazillian spice mix and put a dollop on each lettuce cup
