A sweet and tangy twist on a cookout classic. Marinate steaks in a light, soft brown sugar and lime sauce and prepare a tropical salsa salad using mango, avocado, fresh coriander and lots more lime!
10 mins to prepare and 10 mins to cook
For the steaks
- 1 tbsp light soft brown sugar
- ½ lime, juiced
- 4 steaks
For the salsa
- 1 medium mango, diced
- 1 ripe avocado, diced
- 1 red chilli, finely chopped
- small handful of fresh coriander, chopped
Step 1: Mix the brown sugar and the lime juice together and pour over the steaks, turning to coat completely. Set aside for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine all the salsa ingredients in a bowl and season lightly.
Step 2: Remove the steaks from the marinade, season, then lay them on a hot barbecue and cook undisturbed for 2-2½ minutes on each side for a medium-rare steak. Add another minute or so if you prefer medium to well-done steak. If using a griddle pan, set it over a medium to high heat until smoking hot and cook the steaks as above.
Step 3: Loosely cover the steaks with foil and leave to rest for 3 minutes before serving and enjoy!
Top tips: If you’re barbecuing for lots of people, cook the meat in the oven first then finish it on the barbecue for flavour and to ensure that it is thoroughly cooked. This is particularly important for burgers, sausages, pork and poultry.
