  • 4 bavette steak
  • 5 tbsp soy sauce
  • handful of thyme sprigs
  • 3 garlic cloves, bashed with the side of a knife
  • 2-3 tsp wasabi
  • 6 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1-2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 mini ciabatta (or 1 large cut into 4 pieces)
  • handful of rocket
  • 100g radishes, sliced or cut into matchsticks


  • STEP 1

    Put the steaks in a sealable bag or dish, and pour over the soy, add the thyme and garlic, and mix well. Cover and leave to marinate for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours. Remove from the fridge just as you light the BBQ.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the BBQ and wait until the large flames have died down. Alternatively, heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Mix together the wasabi, mayo and vinegar, adding a little more wasabi and vinegar to taste, if you like.

  • STEP 3

    Remove the steaks from the marinade and brush with the oil. BBQ or griddle the steaks for 2-3 minutes on each side until charred but still pink in the middle. Transfer to a plate and leave to rest for 5 minutes.

  • STEP 4

    Split the ciabatta and toast on the griddle for 30 seconds until toasted. Slice the bavette at an angle into thin strips. Toss the resting juices with a little oil and use to dress the rocket leaves. Add a spoon of mayo to the cut sides of the ciabatta, and top with the steaks, rocket and radishes.
