Chef's Note

This is a traditional Australian recipe that is dying out in the cities, but remains a classic in other parts of the country. When you're near the coast, all you need is a good steak, some fresh oysters and a barbecue... and dinner is ready in minutes.

Ingredients for 4-6 servings

- 8 large Oysters
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 tbsp. chopped parsley
- Melted butter
- A small glass of sherry (optional)
- Salt and pepper
  1. Using a sharp knife, cut the steak three-quarters of the way through to form a pocket, leaving three sides intact;;
  2. season the oysters and stuff the steak;
  3. brush both sides of the steak with butter;
  4. grill in a hot skillet or under the broiler; 
  5. deglaze the skillet with lemon juice and a small glass of sherry; add the parsley and pour the sauce over the steak.
