Bill Granger cooks up some street food with the help of Hollywood actor and director Jon Favreau. In his new film Chef, Jon plays a chef who quits a top restaurant to serve street food from a truck in Miami... can they both impress Lorraine with their sticky steak sarnies? Of course!
4 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp soft brown sugar
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp grated ginger
3 sirloin steaks, 2.5cm thick (about 350g each)
A handful fine strips carrot and cabbage or daikon, cut on a mandolin
A handful of coriander and mint leaves
3 baguettes, cut into 10cm lengths
To make the barbecue sauce, place all the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium–high heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Simmer for a further 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
Place the soy sauce, 1 tbsp water, sugar, garlic, sesame oil, ginger and a pinch of freshly ground black pepper in a bowl and stir to combine. Rub over the steaks and marinate in the fridge for 15 minutes.
3 Preheat a barbecue or chargrill pan to high heat. Sear the steaks for 3 minutes on each side (this will cook your steak medium–rare), then cover and set aside to rest in a warm place for 5 minutes.
Slice the steak and serve on a platter with the barbecue sauce, a bowl of mixed carrot and daikon with herbs and the baguettes, for everyone to make their own steak rolls. Alternatively, make up the rolls and serve on a big platter.
