This quick and easy steak recipe is served with a delicious Korean-inspired kimchi sauce that is rich, tangy and perfect for summer eating.


  • 2 aged steaks, at room temperature
  • light oil
  • freshly ground sea salt & black pepper
  • 100g (3.5 oz) Korean cut cabbage kimchee, plus extra for serving
  • 2 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • fresh chives, finely chopped


  1. Spritz the steaks with oil and season both sides generously with salt and pepper. Set aside while you prepare the barbecue for cooking or heat the griddle pan.
  2. Blitz together the kimchee, mayonnaise, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil until smooth.
  3. Cook the steaks as preferred. Rest for 5 minutes before slicing and transferring to a pair of plates or a warmed serving platter. Spoon over the sauce, scatter with a little extra kimchee and finish with a generous shower of chopped chives.
