Garlic and chilli beef
Easy tender beef made with budget friendly cuts make Mum happy and the family smile.

1 tbsp black peppercorn

6 garlic cloves

2 red chillies, left whole (optional)

4 tbsp red wine vinegar

600g piece well-trimmed beef skirt (from butcher)

In a pestle and mortar, crush the peppercorns and garlic with a pinch of salt to a paste, then stir in the vinegar.

Sit the beef in a non-metallic dish, then rub all over with the paste.

Leave in the fridge for a 2 hours.

Place a griddle pan over a very hot heat.

Rub the marinade off the meat, then season with a little more salt.

Add the chillies in at this point if using which will infuse the dish with that chili kick.

Cook the meat for 5 minutes until charred on for rare. 

If the cut is very thick, you may want to roast it in a hot oven for 5 mins after browning.

Lift onto a chopping board, allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving with salad or chips if you like.
