BBQ beef eye filet with coriander pesto
( SERVES 4 )
For many years (since Sugar Club, Wellington days) I've loved steak with a dollop of standard basil pesto but it's even more yummy with Coriander Pesto.
- Make the pesto in advance & refrigerate until serving. Place all ingredients apart from the steak into a food processor and pulse until well blended.
- Remove meat from refrigerator about half an hour prior to cooking. Oil both sides of the steak & season with salt & pepper.
- BBQ on a pre-heated grill until desired done to your liking.
- Serve each steak with a good dollop of the Coriander pesto. Put any extra pesto into a bowl and serve with the meal as it's so yummy people often want more. BBQ Beef Eye Filet with Coriander Pesto goes really well with roasted baby potatoes & a simple green vegetable such as asparagus or green beans.
