    Burgundy beef steaks with anchovy garlic butter

    This simple wine marinade gives your steak a robust, boisterous flavour: a little like game, curiously. Serve with a quick anchovy butter, smothered on hot toast, ideally a sourdough or crusty, country-style loaf.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus marinating
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes

    Serves: 6 - 8


    6-8 sirloin steaks (about 1.2kg in total)

    1 onion, sliced

    1 garlic clove, sliced

    1⁄2 tsp mild chilli powder

    750ml bottle red wine, preferably burgundy

    1 tbsp vegetable oil

    1 loaf rustic or sourdough bread, sliced


    5-6 anchovy fillets, drained and finely chopped

    1 garlic clove, crushed

    125g unsalted butter, softened


    1. Put the steaks in a large bowl with the onion, garlic and chilli powder; season. Pour over the wine, ensuring the meat is covered. Cover with cling film and chill for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.

    2. For the anchovy butter, beat the anchovies, garlic and butter until smooth, creamy and fawn-coloured, then season to taste.

    3. To cook the steaks, discard the marinade and pat the steaks completely dry on kitchen paper. Season, coat with the oil and cook on a hot barbecue (or griddle pan) for about 4-6 minutes, turning regularly, until cooked to your liking. Rest under a sheet of foil while you toast the bread.

    4. Spread the toast with anchovy butter and slice the steaks to serve alongside.
