  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika (pimenton)
  • 1 teaspoon ground chipotle chili
  • Juice of two limes
  • 100ml tequila
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) olive oil
  • 1kg beef eye fillet, trimmed
  • 1 red capsicum
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 2/3 cup (165ml) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder

Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 sweet potatoes, cut into wedges


  • Combine the garlic, paprika, chipotle chili, lime juice, tequila, one teaspoon cumin and two tablespoons of oil in a bowl. Add beef, turn to coat, then cover and chill for three hours so it can marinate.
  • Bring the beef to room temperature and preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Combine oil, paprika, and garlic powder in a small bowl, season, then brush over the sweet potato. Bake on a tray for 25 minutes or until tender.
  • As you do that, drain the beef. Heat two tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan over high heat, then cook the beef, turning, for 3-4 minutes until browned. Transfer to a baking tray and roast in the oven at least 15 minutes for rare or longer to your liking. Remove from the oven and rest, loosely covered with foil, for 10 minutes.
  • For the hot sauce, preheat your grill to high. Grill capsicum and jalapeno, turning for 3-4 minutes until the skins are blackened and blistered. Transfer to a plastic bag, or place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap, then set aside to cool. Remove the skins and seeds, then cut the flesh into thick strips. Transfer to a food processor with tomato sauce, orange juice, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, chili powder and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin and 2 tablespoons oil. Whiz until smooth. Reheat before serving.
  • Slice the beef and serve it with your hot sauce, sweet potato wedges and tomato salsa.
