Checkers - Jun 6th, 09:06
Banters at your braai? This Steakhouse Classic picanha with broccoli and Asian dressing is a definite winner.
½ (125 ml) cup soy sauce
3 tbsp. (45 ml) rice vinegar
2 tbsp. (30 ml) sesame oil
2 tbsp. (30 ml) sesame seeds; toasted
3 garlic cloves; peeled and crushed
2 tbsp. (30 ml) ginger; peeled and grated
1 chilli; finely chopped
1 Steakhouse Classic picanha roast (approx. 1,2 kg)
3 tbsp. (45 ml) olive oil
Salt and black pepper
1 head broccoli; sliced
Lemon wedges; to serve
Coriander; to garnish
1. To make the Asian dressing, stir soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, sesame seeds, garlic, ginger, and chilli together in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Simmer for a few minutes, then set aside.
2. Place the roast in a large dish and rub with the olive oil, salt and a ⅓ cup of the Asian dressing.
3. Allow to marinate for 2 hrs or overnight.
4. Make sure your coals are medium-hot, so the picanha sears without burning. Alternately, preheat oven to 200 °C.
5. Place the rump on the grid and sear for 8–10 min. on all sides, or sear on the stovetop.
6. Allow the meat to continue cooking for approximately 20–30 min. on the braai or in the oven for medium rare, or longer if you prefer your meat well done.
7. Remove the meat from the braai or oven and cover with foil. Allow to rest for 20 min. before carving.
8. Toss the sliced broccoli with a little Asian dressing and place over the hot coals until charred and cooked through.
9. Serve carved picanha with charred broccoli, lemon wedges, and extra Asian dressing.
