Orange and Thyme Marinade

by Matthias Schmitt

Sweet and savoury notes mingle perfectly with the natural flavours of the meat…


1 steak or chop of your choice – scale up all marinade ingredients accordingly to marinate more than one steak
½ sprig thyme, finely chopped
1 tsp orange juice
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp olive oil

Orange and Thyme Marinade


Mix the marinade ingredients together and coat the steak in the mixture. In a non-metallic dish, let the meat marinate, covered, for 2 hours in the fridge. 20 minutes before you cook, take the dish out to let the meat come to room temperature. When your pan is smoking hot or your BBQ is ready to cook on, place the steak gently in/on using tongs. Cook the steak as you would normally, to your liking, and remember to rest it. Any leftover marinate should be discarded.

Chef’s Tip:
This marinade is particularly good with a Bavette but remember to cook it to rare or medium-rare only, and slice it thinly across the grain after resting.
