Cooking Method

  1. Butterfly the bavette steak and tenderise to a uniform thickness. 
  2. Season the steak lightly with salt and pepper on both sides. 
  3. Prepare the roasted red pepper sauce by blending peppers, garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper until smooth. 
  4. Spread the sauce over the steak, layer with Monterey Jack cheese slices, and sprinkle fresh basil if using. Roll the steak tightly, ensuring the grain runs horizontally. 
  5. Tie with butcher’s twine at 3cm intervals and skewer adjacent to the twine. Slice the steak into pinwheels between each twine.  
  6. Sear the pinwheels on a hot cast iron pan or griddle for 2-3 minutes on each side. 
  7. Set up the deflector plate for indirect grilling and position the pinwheels away from direct heat. 
  8. Grill with the lid closed, monitoring the internal temperature, aiming for 60C for a medium finish. Allow the pinwheels to rest for about 10 minutes before serving.
