Cooking Tips

So, what’s the secret behind my Grilled Pepper Steak? First and foremost, it’s all about the steak. I recommend sourcing your steak from a local farm or butcher, where you can find the freshest cuts.

Next, let’s talk peppers. The combination of different peppers not only adds a burst of colour but also a variety of flavours. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your favourite peppers!

Lastly, the grilling process. Remember to preheat your grill, cook the steak to your preferred doneness, and let it rest before slicing to ensure juiciness.
