OUR AUSTRALIA DAY PARTY PICKS

If you are staying local this Australia Day, treat your friends to this Aussie steak recipe and fantastic drinks list.

Ingredients

120g good quality butter, softened

2 tablespoons Vegemite

2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves

8 sirloin steaks

 

Method

  1. Place the butter, Vegemite and thyme in a bowl. Season with sea salt and cracked pepper, and mix to combine until nice and smooth.
  2. Spoon the mixture onto a piece of glad wrap, roll tightly and fashion into a log.
  3. Twist both ends and refrigerate until ready to cook.
  4. Preheat BBQ to medium-high.
  5. Brush both sides of the steak with a little olive oil or melted butter to prevent it from sticking to the BBQ.
  6. BBQ the steaks until golden brown and slightly charred, 4 to 5 minutes.
  7. Turn the steaks over and continue to grill 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare, 5 to 7 minutes for medium or 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well or until done to your liking.
  8. 10-seconds from removing, add a few slices of the slightly hardened butter to the top of each steak. Transfer the steaks to a plate and rest under foil for 5 minutes, letting the yummy butter melt into the steak.

 

For your perfect Australia Day weekend drinks list try:

  1. James Squire 150 Lashes and Pure Blonde Cider when you throw the steaks on
  2. An Upside Down Rose as you settle down to eat
  3. A Pepperjack Shiraz to go with your steak
  4. An El Jimador tequila, ice and lime for your afternoon celebrations

Happy Australia Day!
