Bavette and Rump steak from Morley Butchers

Morley Butchers source the very best Scotch Beef PGI. We look for meat that is well marbled and matured on the bone for between 21 and 28 days for extra flavour. This produces a succulent, full flavoured product.

Rump steak is a prime cut, it’s often cheaper than fillet or sirloin because it’s not quite as tender. However many say that it has a far superior flavour than sirloin or fillet. Bavette or flank steaks take on marinades very well are often used in Mexican dishes, as they can take on punchy flavours such as lime and chilli and are well suited to barbecuing.

Cooking Method For Steak With Tequila And Lime

In a large bowl, combine all the marinade ingredients and set to one side don’t chill it as your steak will be too cold when you want to serve it.

Pre-heat a griddle pan or a frying pan until it is piping hot.

Rub each steak with olive oil and season well with salt and pepper on each side.

For a medium cooked steak, cook each steak for four minutes on either side Remember that thin steaks will cook more rapidly than a thicker ones. so cook for a shorter time.

Once the steaks are cooked place them in the marinade allowing the steaks to rest.

Turn the steaks over after a few minutes in the marinade to ensure the moisture is evenly distributed throughout. Marinate for another five minutes.

Remove the steak from the marinade and slice them.

Serve with tortillas, salsa, guacamole, and chargrilled sweetcorn.
