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


120g good quality butter, softened

2 tablespoons Vegemite

2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves

8 sirloin steaks



  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!
