Grilled Steak

Grilled steak for two is what you eat when the kids are out and you are having a date night!

I am a very involved mom, right, hovering over the kiddos, caring for their every need. ( I know, I need therapy!) I like having them around, so I was not at all prepared for this stage of our lives. Teenage stage, yes, despite me, the kiddos now have a social life! Parties and outings and sleepovers … hate those!) and sports. So all of a sudden the hubster and I are alone…… often…… too often! Sadly, we work so hard at the moment, that we are often too tired to go out ( I know, sad isn’t it?)

Grilled Steak


So, this Grilled Steak for Two is for those nights. No dishes, just me, the hubster and a pan full of food. Why is this grilled steak so special? The green olive and caper butter and then just to take you over the edge, deep-fried capers! ( idea from Anel Potgieter)

Grilled Steak

Where I got the idea for the butter from, heaven only knows, but it works. Served with a simple tomato salad, this grilled steak will definitely be our date night treat from now on.

Grilled Steak

This T-bone steak was about 5 cm thick and it was free-range, matured and most importantly ready at room-temperature. You can also use rib-eye, rump or fillet. I prefer a thick cut steak, because I like steak to be grilled to perfection on the outside, but beautifully rare in the middle.

Here are some tips to get that restaurant perfection on your steak!

Do not turn over if steak is still stuck to pan, it will release itself. now, turn steak over and grill for 5 minutes on other side. If you have a really thick steak, you can pop it in the oven for 5-10 minutes.

For the capers
  1. Place the drained capers in a small bowl and add the Mazeina. Shake the bowl so that the capers are completely coated with Mazeina. Heat the oil in a pan and deep-fry until crispy.
Recipe Notes

Serve this grilled steak with a fresh tomato salad, made with a variety cut tomatoes, fresh basil, salt, pepper and a little olive oil.

I use Olyfberg Green Olives, delicious.
