Marinated Beef Steak with Chimichurri

Aussies love a good steak. (Don't we??) I am a medium-rare girl when it comes to steak and I often find it can be a bit tricky to get that just right. However, with the help of your Varoma, I think you can get your steak perfectly cooked, with just a little effort. It might seem odd to steam meat first, but I assure you it helps the fat render well, and starts the cooking process which then just needs finishing off in a very hot pan. I only use 100°C deliberately, it is not a typo. Using this method— a similar idea to sous-vide — has the meat tender and moist.

Teamed with chimichurri, which I absolutely love, and the brightness of capsicum puree, you only need to add are Scalloped Potatoes and you are in all sorts of colourful foodie heaven.


Stasher bags are silicone bags that completely seal and can be used to marinate, steam, sousvide, or store. Non plastic, non reactive and environmentally friendly, I used to sell them in my online store, but they are now widely available in good kitchen stores. They have become a standard piece of equipment for me in my kitchen. Each stasher bag will hold approximately 500–600 grams of steak or other protein.
