The first step in any BBQ journey is to master the perfect cooking of a BBQ Beef Sirloin served with a simple dish to complement the succulent meat.



Wine Match: Take it to the Grave Shiraz



  • 4 x sirloin steaks (around 250g per portion)
  • 4 x vine ripened tomatoes, cut into rough cubes
  • 20 x basil leaves
  • 75ml olive oil
  • 250g bocconcini
  • 2ml balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper



  1. Pre-heat BBQ until hot registers on the hood indicator (hood down)
  2. Place chopped tomatoes, bocconcini and basil into a bowl ready to dress
  3. Oil and season steak with salt and pepper and turn BBQ down to halfway
  4. Place steak on char-grill and let sear for approximately 2 minutes
  5. Turn steak with raw side still facing up to achieve criss cross char grill lines and wait for tiny drops of blood to form on the surface (this is for medium rare), then turn over
  6. Cook steak on the second side for about half the cooking time of the first side
  7. Place steak on resting rack to rest with the BBQ turned off
  8. Dress and season salad and serve with your perfectly cooked steak
