Steak with cacao & chilli

They say diamonds are a girls best friend, but frankly I beg to differ. Clearly this girl has been living in isolation and hasn’t been introduced to steak or chocolate!

Cacao has a rich dark flavour, which pairs perfectly with the kick of the chilli. This steak with cacao and chilli rub feels like the ultimate indulgence.


Serves 2


2 steaks (sirloin and fillet are my favourite cuts)

2 tsp raw cacao

1 tsp dried chilli flakes

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp ground pepper

1 tsp Himalayan pink salt or sea salt

A drizzle of olive oil or coconut oil



Leave the steaks in room temperature to rest whilst you combine the ingredients

MI’m all of the seasonings together, keeping aside 1/4 of the salt

Rub all the mixture all over your steaks and then sprinkle the remaining salt on top.

Heat your pan and add your oil of choice. After 20-30 seconds, add your steaks and cook to your liking!

Top tip: These taste great with sweet potato fries cooked with a little cayenne pepper!
