  • Once rested sear the steak for 1-2 minutes per side to form a nice crust and internal temperature is about 52-55c.

  • In a saucepan heat enough canola oil to deep fry the zucchinis to 180c, fry the zucchini in batches for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown

Order of Cooking

  • Put the steak on the BBQ
  • Make salsa verde, carrot top pesto and prep the rest of the vegetables.
  • After 20 minutes of the steak cooking on the BBQ add the potatoes to the oven
  • Once the steak is resting add the carrots to the oven and the zucchini fries if oven baking them
  • Sear the steak for 1-2 minutes per side
  • Fry the zucchini fries as the steak is being seared (requires the assistance of someone else!)



  • there are quite a few components to the recipe so the key is to read through it all first and to have your ingredients ready and it will all be relatively straightforward then!
  • make sure to remove your meat from the fridge at least 30 mins before cooking but 1 hour is better and oil and heavily salt at this stage
  • make sure to rest the meat prior to searing as that way as soon as you sear it you can serve it having a perfectly cooked and hot steak!
