Reverse-Seared Sirloin Cap Steak with Chimichurri SauceVery slowly cooking a steak at low temperature until it reaches the desired internal temperature and then searing it quickly over high heat to get a crust is known as reverse-searing, and it takes a lot of the guesswork out of cooking a steak perfectly. In this recipe, I use the sirloin cap—the triangular muscle that sits on the top sirloin—called a coulotte in France and a picanha steak in Brazil. Whatever you call it, this cut has a natural fat cap, which I leave on while cooking so the rendered fat bastes the steak. If you prefer, you can remove the fat or ask your butcher to do it for you.
Note: Start this at least 12 hours before you plan to eat.

Grilled Flank Steak and Puttanesca SaladAndrea Buckett Cooks created this delicious steak recipe which incorporates all the flavours we love about "puttanesca" into a summer fresh salad. The steak is grilled with only salt and pepper then gets a “reverse rub” after it comes off the grill. This means the flavours of the rub get to shine and aren’t dimmed by charring on the BBQ. The flank steak doesn’t need to be marinated to be tender. You simply have to cut it in thin slices against the grain. This is a brilliant recipe chocked-full of flavour and perfect to feed a crowd.
