  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp smokey paprika
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground pepper


    • 2 corn on the cob husk and silks removed, blanched quickly
    • 400g small sweet potato, sliced 1cm thick on an angle
    • 2 jalapeño peppers, seeds and stems removed, sliced thickly
    • 200g baby heirloom tomatoes, chopped roughly
    • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 lime cut into wedges 
    • 50g feta cheese (optional)



      1. Combine marinade ingredients in a glass dish. Add meat to marinade and rub all over, cover in cling film and marinate for at least 30 mins.
      2. Preheat oven to 180°C.
      3. Char grill over high heat the brushed corn, sweet potato and jalapeños in 1 tbsp oil turning frequently for 10-15 mins or until tender.
      4. Remove meat from the marinade. Grill steaks on high heat for 2 mins on each side until browned and place in oven for 5 mins for medium-rare. Remove from the oven, cover in aluminium foil and set aside.
      5. On a platter, place sweet potato slices, clusters of corn kernels, and tomatoes. Top with thick slices of the bavette steak and crumbled feta cheese.
