Description

This is classic South African dish that has its roots in Portugal. It gets its’ name from the Portuguese word for nail (Prego), because we literally hammer the garlic into the steaks.

South Africans like it a little spicier, so I’ve added peri-peri to this version.

The sauce which comes from the cooking the steak and reducing the marinade is known as “Prego sauce”. The best bread rolls to use are the floury kaiser type.

The meat takes only a few minutes to cook so get everything ready to go. The steak rolls should be eaten warm and enjoyed with an ice-cold beer.

You can substitute skinless, boneless chicken breasts in place of the steak.

½ bottle white wine
6 whole peppercorns
2 TBS peri-peri /sambal chili paste

InstructionsPlace the steaks on a board and top with the chopped garlic cloves. Cover with some plastic wrap and hammer them with a mallet until they are about a ½ inch thick. Season with coarse salt.

In a bowl combine the white wine, bay leaves, peppercorns, peri-peri and cumin. Whisk together to combine. Add the steaks and marinade steaks for a few hours or overnight.

Remove the steaks from the refrigerator 2 hours before cooking to bring them to room temp.

Slice the tomato into wedges and the red onion into thin slivers. Place in a bowl and top with the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and fresh Italian parsley. Toss to coat.

Heat a grill pan on high heat. Add ½ a stick of butter. Remove steaks from the marinade and pat them dry. Cook for 2-3 minutes a side depending on desired level of doneness. Set aside to rest

Add the remaining marinade to the grill pan and reduce by half so it forms a thick sauce. Add the steak back to the pan.
