Servings 5 people


  • 1 kg skirt steak
  • olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • Basil chopped, fresh if at all possible
  • Oregano chopped, fresh if at all possible
  • Parsley chopped, fresh if at all possible
  • 1 Lemon


  • First I made the vinaigrette to go over the meat once finished, as once it comes of the barbie you don’t have much time to mess around.
  • Use about half a cup of olive oil and gently fry the chopped garlic to flavour the oil. Set aside.
  • Prepare the meat by rubbing it with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • We made some simple new potatoes as a side dish, so cook those and have them ready to be served.
  • Some green beans or roasted baby tomatoes would also be a nice addition.
  • Once all’s prepared chuck the meat on the barbecue and cook for about 5 minutes each side (or a bit more if you don’t want it too raw).
  • Please don’t overcook this cut of meat, as it will turn into a shoe-sole, I guarantee it.
  • Whilst it’s on the grill, reheat the olive oil and add the chopped herbs, keep warm but don’t let it boil.
  • Once the steak comes off, find a chopping board and cut it into thin-ish slices.
  • Transfer the meat to your serving plate (unless the board does the trick) and pour over the hot sauce, making sure all the bits of meat are nicely covered.
  • Sprinkle some more sea salt and squeeze a lemon over it all to finish off and decorate it with your roast baby tomatoes.
  • Get it on the table as quickly as possible as it does go cold.
