Steak with caper & anchovy stuffing


  • Finely chop the basil, capers and anchovies together and put in a large bowl with the vinegar, oil and mustard. Mix well until a paste is formed.
  • Cut a slit to form a pocket in the side of each steak and press the stuffing in.
  • Then grill the steaks on a lightly oiled ridged grill (or BBQ) to the desired degree, spraying with oil and sprinkling with a little pepper before turning over.
  • Spoon a dollop of hot mash on individual plates, top with the steaks and serve with a lemon wedge on the side.
