BBQ Steak in spicy marinade

It is what it is, a spicy marinade using ollive oil, vinegar and herbs & spices


  • 4 x 300g Sirloin steaks

  • 2tbs Balsamic Vinegar

  • 2tbs Red Wine Vinegar

  • 2tsps brown sugar (if you don't have brown, white will do)

  • 1/2 tsp chopped dried rosemary

  • 1/2 tsp chopped dried oregano

  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes (more if you want it hotter - or add 1/4 tsp chilli powder)

  • 1/2 tsp chopped dried sage

  • 1/2 tsp chopped dried parsley

  • basically you can add any dried herbs or spices (add cumin if you want a bit Indian/Moroccan)


  • 1.

    Place everything into a ziplock bag and seal.

  • 2.

    Squelch it all around ensuring the steaks are coated.

  • 3.

    Place in fridge for an hour or two - or overnight - turn it over at some stage if you remember.

  • 4.

    Cook on a hot bbq to your own personal liking.

  • 5.

    I usually sear each side for a minute on the grill, then move it to a warming rack under the hood while I burn hell out of eveything else and everyone else's steak is cooked up to well done or medium. Meanwhile my steak has sat nicely and warmed up to medium.

  • 6.

    Serve with mashed potatoes and some snowpeas, maybe bung on some grilled corn cobs if you like.
