Blue Triangle 600g Cape Grim hanger steak
Blue Triangle 3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Blue Triangle Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
Blue Triangle 1/4 cup Japanese mayonnaise
Blue Triangle 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Blue Triangle 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
Blue Triangle 8 slices sourdough, toasted
Blue Triangle 1 cup baby rocket or 6 baby cos leaves


Blue Triangle 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
Blue Triangle 1 tsp salt
Blue Triangle 3 garlic cloves, minced
Blue Triangle 1 golden shallot, finely chopped
Blue Triangle 1 bird’s eye chilli
Blue Triangle 1 bunch coriander, leaves, stalks and roots finely chopped
Blue Triangle 1/2 bunch flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
Blue Triangle 2 sprigs fresh oregano
Blue Triangle 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil



  1. For the chimichurri, combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk with a fork. Set aside and refrigerate for at least one hour and up to 24 hours.
  2. Bring steak to room temperature, drizzle over oil to coat, then season. Heat a large, heavy-based frypan over a high heat. Add the steak and grill until it forms a brown crust on one side, about 2-3 minutes, then turn and cook the other side, about 2 minutes for rare. Transfer steak to a board and let rest 5 minutes.
  3. Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice and paprika in a bowl and whisk lightly.
  4. Make the sandwich. Thinly slice steak across the grain. Top half the bread slices with baby rocket or cos leaves, divide steak between the sandwiches, drizzle over chimichurri and spiced mayonnaise, then place final slices on top. Offer steak knives for cutting sandwiches in half.
