Season the steaks with the combined oil, oregano, peppercorns and garlic, and a little sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Preheat the barbecue char-grill to hot before adding the steaks.

Essential Tips

  • Scotch fillet steak is sometimes called boneless rib eye or rib fillet. This steak is one of the most popular steaks. It’s juicy, tender and full of flavour.
  • Best beef cuts for barbecuing: fillet/tenderloin, rib eye/scotch fillet, sirloin/porterhouse/New York, T-bone, rump.
  • Always heat the barbecue to hot before you add the steak. The steak should sizzle as it makes contact with the heat.
