A Dirty Steak How To – aka Caveman Steak
Any steak really, as long as it was cut thick (3cm+).
Make a huge fire using hardwood. Once coals have formed, break any larger logs and scratch the coals into as flat a surface as you can.
Pre-Salt your steak using coarse salt. Pepper may also be used, but it may burn more easily. Experiment with it though, I’ve found the burnt pepper to add to the crust quite nicely.
Braai for approximately 3 minutes (depending on the thickness and cut of steak) on either side for a medium-rare steak.
Remove from the coals and let it rest for about 5 minutes. You may lightly brush the steak with olive oil if you feel there’s too much ash on your steak. This shouldn’t really happen though.
Serve! I like to slice it up into thin slices, drizzle with a chili sauce and then pass around as a starter.
