Ingredients

  • Bring the steak to room temperature first. This reduces grilling time and ensures consistent cooking throughout the steak.
  • Use direct heat to grill and make sure the fire is as hot as possible.
  • Sear in those juices! Use TONGS (remember, don't EVER puncture your steak!) and place the steak on the grill. Do NOTHING for at least 2 minutes.
  • After about 2 minutes (for medium-rare, a little more for Medium), lift, turn your steak and then set it back down for another 3 minutes (again, for medium-rare, a little more if you like it medium).
  • After a total of about 5 minutes, it's time to flip that steak again and leave it alone for about 2 more minutes.
  • Once done to your liking, remove and rest for 2 - 3 minutes. This allows the juices to re-distribute, so they don't all run out when you slice into that perfect steak.
  • 2 x 300g good quality grass-fed fillet steaks
  • 50ml Staffords Dijon mustard
  • 5ml Staffords garlic paste
  • 10ml Staffords red current jelly
  • 4 slices streaky bacon
  • Fresh rosemary to serve

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl mix the mustard, garlic paste, and red current jelly, brush the steaks with this mixture and allow to marinade for a couple of minutes.
  2. Wrap the bacon around the steaks and secure using a toothpick,
  3. Place onto the grid of a prepared kettle braai and follow grilling instructions as above.
  4. Serve with fresh rosemary and seasonal vegetables, sautéed in a skillet over the open fire.
