Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Cape Grim Rib Eye with Chimichurri Sauce


Serves: 6

An exclusive recipe from Dan Cairns of the Railway Club Hotel, Port Melbourne 

(Chimmichurri is a traditional South American accompaniment for grilled steak)


  • Parsley 1 cup chopped
  • Oregano 1/2 cup chopped fresh
  • Shallot 2 diced
  • Garlic 3 cloves crushed
  • Chilli 1 deseeded chopped
  • Olive oil 5 TBL
  • Red wine vinegar 1TBl
  • Lime juice ½ lime
  • Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Kipfler Potatoes 500g washed
  • Clarified butter 100g
  • Cape Grim Bone in Rib Eye or Scotch Fillet 4x300g Steaks


1. Chimmichurri Salsa is a very simple recipe some people like to mix the ingredients in a blender or mortar and pestel I prefer to simply chop them and mix in a bowl, this gives a nice crunch and texture to the dish.

2. For the Kipfler Potatoes bring to the boil in salted water with the skin on and two cloves of crushed garlic . Once boiled for 2 minutes take off the heat and allow them to cool in the water, they will be par cooked when they reach room temperature. Cut the potatoes in half and fry flat side down on the barbeque hot plate in clarified butter until crisp, season with salt and pepper.

3. Make sure to get nice thick pieces of Steak with a centred piece of fat, this will help you get a delicious crust without over cooking the steak. Season liberally with sea salt and pepper First seal on the hotplate until golden brown (around 1 minute on either side) and then move to grill to finish cooking (around 2 minutes either side for medium rare).

Rest the Steaks in a warm spot (around 50 degrees) for half the overall cooking time at least.
