Board Sauce for Steak

Board Sauce for Steak

Board sauce is set to liven up your steak without detracting from the natural meat flavours. With a few simple ingredients and no fuss, create your board sauce steak to shine on the plate.


  • 2 traditionally matured, grass-fed
  • Beef Sirloin or Ribeye Steaks
  • 1-3 cloves garlic
  • 1 small fresh chilli– optional, if you like a kick!
  • Handful of fresh green herbs to chop– choose as per your preference, or try the following combinations of herbs and aromatics: Rosemary & flat-leaf parsley, Thyme, oregano & orange zest, Tarragon & spring onion, Basil & sun-dried tomato, Coriander & chive
  • 2-4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp darkbalsamic vinegar


  1. First cook your steaks. Make sure they’re at room temperature, and have been patted dry out of any packaging. Generously season with salt and pepper and brush with a little oil.
  2. Lay them in a smoking hot pan and turn the heat down to medium. Turn them only once using tongs so as not to pierce the meat.
  3. Once they are done, transfer them to a wire rack with a plate below and loosely cover with tin foil. Let them rest like this, somewhere warm for 5 minutes, while you get on with your sauce.
  4. On a wooden chopping board, crush the garlic with the side of your knife, then add the herbs and other aromatics and chop as roughly or finely as you like.
  5. Pour on the olive oil and balsamic and use your knife to scrape and chop it all together into a really loose, flavour-packed ‘sauce’.
  6. Add any tasty juices that have gathered on the plate under the steaks and scrape and chop to mingle.
  7. Lay your steaks, side by side, on top of the sauce-drenched board and slice them across the grain.
  8. Using a spatula or tongs, gently toss the slices of steak in the sauce on the board, so each juicy sliver gets coated with the aromatic sauce.
  9. Serve however you like - in a zesty, glistening mound alongside homemade chips; with a fresh green salad and crusty ciabatta; with mash and fried onion, or even with fresh buttered tagliatelle and parmesan. You’re going to love this!
