Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Bavette Steak Aji Verde Sauce

My go to sauces for accompanying steaks used to be Salsa Verde, Peppercorn or Chimichuri until I discovered Peruvian Aji Verde!  Ever since I first shared a Bavette steak recipe, I’ve had so many people comment on how this cut of beef is a game changer. I love the flavour as much as fillet yet it’s a third of the price which means you can really go to town on the quantities! 
Aji Verde will also work with chicken and fish.

Serves: 4

Prep: 5 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes plus resting
Total: 15 minutes

Difficulty: easy


For the Aji Verde:-
30g fresh coriander
2 jalapeño, topped (seeds removed unless you like your sauce super hot)
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 garlic clove
1 tsp salt
Juice of a lime
1/2 tsp ground cumin
4 tbsp mayo

1kg Bavette steak

Simply blitz all the Aji Verde ingredients together in a blender and pour into a bowl.

Generously season the steak and drizzle over olive oil.

Get a pan or barbecue hot and sear for 60-90 seconds on each side. Rest and slice then serve.

Drizzle over the Aji Verde.
