Serves 4 people


  • 4 beef Chuck steaks
  • coarse sea salt
  • cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped
  • 1/2 medium fresh red chili, deseeded, chopped


  1. Season steaks with a generous amount of salt and pepper. Place on a plate and refrigerate for 1.5 hours, uncovered Рthis allows a crust to form.

  2. In a bowl, combine the softened butter with the fresh herbs and chili. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mould together, cover and store in the refrigerator until steaks are ready to be cooked.

  3. 30 mins before cooking, remove the steaks from the fridge, as well as the herbed butter. Keep the herbed butter aside and allow to soften again. Preheat the grill to high and brush the bars with a little vegetable oil. For a medium rare steak, grill for 5 minutes on each side.

  4. As soon as the steaks have been removed from the grill, top with a tablespoon of herb butter each and serve.
