Step 1: You will need

  • 400 g flank steak
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • half a red onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp crushed black pepper
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds, crushed
  • for the salsa:
  • half avocado, peeled
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 green chilli, diced
  • half red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp coriander, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cutting board
  • 1 knife
  • tongs
  • 1 tray
  • 2 bowls
  • 1 spoon
  • cling film
  • 1 barbecue, charcoal or gas
  • 1 bottle of water to douse flames

Step 2: Prepare the barbecue

If you have a charcoal barbecue light it 30-45 minutes before you plan to cook. It is ready when there are no more flames and the charcoal has turned white.

If you are using a gas barbecue, light it up and turn it to the highest setting. Leave it for 15-20 minutes to heat up.

Step 3: Make the marinade

Add the orange juice to a large bowl. Follow with the lime juice, red onion, chopped garlic, coriander seeds, black pepper seeds, olive oil and combine together well. Place the steak into the marinade and spoon some over, covering well. Cover with cling film. Take it to the fridge and chill for 2-6 hours. Turn the meat back and forth a few times whilst marinating.


A useful tip! Do not be alarmed when the meat turns white. This is all part of the process.

Step 5: Cut the avocado

Place the avocado onto the chopping board and slice it horizontally and then lengthways. Turn 90 degrees, dice and put it into a bowl.

Step 6: Cut the tomato

Place the tomato on the chopping board and slice off the end. Cut in half and again, cut each half in two. Slice sideways to de-seed the tomato and discard the seeds. Dice and transfer into the bowl with the avocado.

Step 7: Finish the salsa

Add the green chilli, red onion, lime juice, olive oil and the coriander to the bowl of the of avocado and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.

Step 8: Remove the meat from marinade

Uncover the bowl of marinade. Using your tongs, remove the steak from the marinade and place onto a tray. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.

Step 9: Barbecue the meat

Place the meat into the centre of the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side. When ready remove form the grill.

Step 10: Slice the steak

Allow the meat to rest for a few minutes and slice the meat against the grain into thin pieces.

Step 11: Finishing touches

Place four of the meat slices into the centre of a serving plate. Spoon some salsa over the top.
