Steak With Caper Relish Recipe

Enjoy a simple yet heavenly combination of juicy steak and tasty relish.

Serves: 4 
Preparation: 5 minutes 
Cooking: 15 minutes 
Total: 20 minutes


sirloin steaks, about 225g each

olive oil for brushing and drizzling

salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons capers

250g (9 oz) jar chargrilled capsicum strips

¼ cup (60 ml) red wine vinegar, plus extra for drizzling

150g mixed salad leaves



Brush the steaks lightly with the oil and season well with salt and pepper. To make the caper relish, chop the capers, then combine in a small bowl with the capsicum strips, some oil from the jar and the vinegar.

Preheat a barbecue hotplate or grill to high. Add the steaks and cook, without turning, for 3 - 4 minutes, or until small beads of moisture appear on top. Turn the steaks and continue to cook until done to your liking. Remove the steaks from the heat and leave to rest for 4 minutes.

Meanwhile, put the salad leaves in a bowl, drizzle lightly with some oil and extra red wine vinegar and toss.

Top the steaks with a spoonful of the caper relish and serve with the mixed salad leaves.
