For the steak

480ml red wine
240ml cassis
60ml rapeseed oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
Freshly ground black pepper
1 (1-1.3kg) flank steak

For the chimichurri sauce

2 handfuls coriander leaves
2 handfuls flat-leaf parsley leaves
Small handful of mint leaves
4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
180-240ml olive oil
60-80ml cup red wine vinegar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the vivaldi relish

3 Vidalia or other sweet onions, skin on, sliced 1cm thick
Canola oil
1 tbsp Bobby Flay Poultry Rub
Salt and black pepper
4 spring onions, sliced
1 serrano chilli, minced with the seeds
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 baguette
Olive or rapeseed oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1) Steak: Mix the wine, cassis, oil and black pepper in a nonreactive dish. Add the steak, turn to coat, and marinate at room temperature 1 hour.

2) Sauce: Pulse the herbs and garlic in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Add 180ml oil, 60ml vinegar and salt and pepper, to taste, and pulse to make a soupy vinaigrette — it will look a bit creamy until it settles. Add more oil and/or vinegar if too thick. Set aside.

3) Preheat the grill to high. Remove the steak from the marinade and season with salt and more pepper. Grill, covered, until nicely charred and medium rare, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and rest 5 to 10 minutes before slicing across the grain.

4) Relish: Brush the onions with some rapeseed oil and season with rub, salt and pepper. Grill the onions, turning, until charred and soft. Remove from the grill and chop coarsely. Chop again with the spring onions and then stir them together with the chilli, oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper.

5) Slice the baguette on a diagonal 1cm thick. Brush with oil, season with salt and pepper and grill briefly, until just starting to crisp. Top each piece with some sauce, a slice or 2 of steak, more sauce and some relish.
