Recipe by Naomi Sherman

Make Dad an epic steak lunch with this fool proof guide to the perfect T-bone steak. With a deeply caramelised crust on the outside and tender juicy meat on the inside, this steak is teamed with a rich red sauce, sweet roasted tomatoes, and gooey egg.

Add some wilted greens because we want Dad to eat healthy…right?

Serves 1


Red Sauce:

1 cup roasted capsicum

½ cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped

3 tsp smoked paprika

4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp ground black pepper

¼ cup lemon juice

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

½ tsp chilli flakes (optional)

¼ cup olive oil

The red sauce will keep for a couple of weeks in a jar in the fridge.


1 T-bone steak

2 Tbsp olive oil, divided

1 Tbsp butter


  • 01

    Make the red sauce by placing all of the ingredients, except the oil, into a small blender and blitzing until well combined.

  • 02

    Add to a bowl and pour in the olive oil. Mix to combine.

  • 03

    Let your steak sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking.

  • 04

    Pat the steak very dry and then rub with 1 tablespoon of oil, and season with salt and pepper on both sides.

  • 05

    Heat a cast-iron skillet like a Lodge pan over high heat on the stove.

    Heat your pan for 5-10 minutes.

  • 06

    The key to getting a lovely, caramelised crust on your steak is two things: no moisture on the steak and a very high heat in the pan.

  • 07

    Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the hot skillet and add the steak when it begins to smoke.

  • 08

    Sear your steak for 2 minutes on each side.

  • 09

    Add the butter and transfer the steak to a preheated oven at 200°C

  • 10

    Cook until it reaches the desired doneness.

    As a guide, use the following temperatures:

    Rare: 50°C - 2 minutes

    Medium rare: 55°C - 3 minutes

    Medium: 60°C - 4 minutes

    Medium Well Done: 65°C - 5 minutes

    Well Done: 70°C - 6 minutes

  • 11

    Transfer steak to a plate or cutting board and let it rest for 5 minutes.

  • 12

    Cut steak from the bone to serve.

  • 13

    To roast your tomatoes, lay them on a tray and drizzle with olive oil.

  • 14

    Season lightly with salt and pepper and roast in the oven for 20 minutes.

  • 15

    Serve your steak with some wilted greens, fried eggs, roasted tomato, and a drizzle of the red sauce.
