  • Chef Knives
  • Chopping board
  • measuring/weighing utensils
  • frying pan
  • baking tray
  • BBQ or grill pan
  • tongs



  • 800 g bavette/flank steak
  • 120 ml red wine
  • 60 ml olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • salt & pepper


  • 500 g vine tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • salt


  • 600 g brushed potatoes
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 1 knob butter


  • Mix all the marinade ingredients together for the steak and place the marinade and steak in a ziplock bag for up to 2 hours
  • Heat your BBQ to 300c and the oven to 180c
  • Drizzle the tomatoes in oil and salt – set aside
  • Clean the potatoes and chop them into 1cm cubes and par boil them for 3-4 minutes *see tips*
  • Finely dice the rosemary for the potatoes
  • Grill the steak on your BBQ for 10 – 12 minutes @ 300c or until internal temperature is 52-54c for medium-rare. The higher temperature will give you a nice crust/sear on the steak *see tips*
  • Allow the steak to rest for 10 minutes
  • As the steak is resting roast the tomatoes for 10-12 minutes @ 180c in the oven
  • Fry the potatoes on high heat in olive oil for 10 minutes/ until golden brown, add the rosemary, butter & garlic at the end and toss to combine
  • Slice your steak and serve with vine tomatoes, potatoes and either a jus, mustard or whatever sauce you enjoy with your steak



  • this recipe calls for the steak to be marinated minimum of 2 hours – my advice is to do so in the morning before work or whatever daily activities you will be doing so that come dinner time it’s quick and easy to make! 
  • if you don’t have a BBQ then you can grill the steak on high for 2-3 minutes per side and then finish in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until internal temperature is 52-54c for medium-rare 
  • you can prepare the potatoes in advance - just leave them in a bowl of ice-cold water in the fridge to stop them from oxidising and going brown
  • if you don’t parboil the potatoes you will need to fry them for about 15 minutes instead of 10 to ensure they are cooked through
  • resting the meat is just as important as cooking it to the right temperature – if you cut the meat to soon then the juices won’t have time to re-distribute and you will be left with a pool of red and an overcooked piece of meat
