B.B.Q Rump Steak with Salsa


4 rump steaks
3 small tomatoes, chopped
2 small cloves garlic, finely chopped
½ small red onion, finely chopped
¼ cup roughly chopped coriander
¼ cup roughly chopped parsley
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 small red chilli, chopped (optional

1.Brush the steaks lightly with oil and season with a little sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Preheat the barbecue flat-plate to hot before adding the steaks.

2.Cook the steaks on one side until the first sign of moisture appears. Turn the steaks once only. Test for the degree of doneness with tongs. Rare is soft, medium feels springy and well done is very firm.

3. Remove the steaks from the heat, cover loosely with foil and allow to rest for 2 to 4 minutes before serving. While the steaks are resting, toss together all of the salsa ingredients. Serve alongside the steaks.


Rump steaks are a good all-rounder. They’re lean, full-flavoured and perfect for barbecuing.

Best beef cuts for barbecuing: fillet/tenderloin, scotch fillet/rib eye, sirloin/porterhouse/New York, T-bone, rump.

Only buy steaks of an even thickness, not wedge shaped – this way they’ll cook evenly.

Always heat the barbecue before you add the steak. The steak should sizzle as it makes contact with the heat.
