Steak to Share

This is an affordable way to enjoy steak.How it works

Each couple brings two steaks of their choice (any cut except fillet). Prepare a fire with plenty of coals and cook one or two of the steaks so everyone at the table can have a taste. Slice the steaks and offer around on a wooden board. Serve with a variety of dips in small bowls, a salad or two and a generous quantity of hot chips. Sit back and catch up with friends over a glass of wine before cooking the next round of steaks.

Steak Choices Sirloin, rump, T-bone, prime rib, rib-eye and porterhouse. Allow for 250-300 g per person and 2,5-3 cm thick so the steak can be nicely browned on the outside and juicy inside. Steak sliced too thinly tends to be dry.
