Cooking method For Ribeye And Horseradish Sauce
It is best if you get the steak to room temperature before you start cooking. Meat straight from the fridge will brown on the out side yet the temperature inside will remain low and not cook properly with the timings we suggest here. If you are using a charcoal BBQ make sure you light it in good time so that it is up to temperature when you want to cook. (You can see it is ready when the coal is white all over)
Cut your potatoes to your preferred shape – we like a chunky skin on home fries look for this dish. Par boil until soft then roast until golden and crisp.
When you are ready to cook very lightly oil the meat surface, we recommend a vegetable oil for this – As you will be cooking at high temperatures a more refined oil will take the higher heat without burning and imparting unwanted flavours. To season, rub the outside with plenty of coarse sea salt. Be generous and make sure any areas of fat don’t get missed. Don’t put the seasoning on too soon as the salt will take moisture from the meat. Up to 15 minutes before you cook will be about right – the loss of some moisture on the surface will only improve the crust. A good amount of freshly ground pepper will add extra depth to the finished steak taste.
To get a good tasty exterior on you steak you will need to cook it at a high temperature. To get a good evenly hot cooking surface use a pan with a heavy bottom. Cast iron cookware is perfect for this.
Place your pan on a high heat with a very small amount of oil in the pan. You can see that as the temperature rises the oil will thin and spread out. When it starts to smoke you are ready to cook.
Depending on the thickness of your steak you may need to reduce the heat whilst you cook
Thickness and timing
The speed at which you steak cooks will depend on the thickness of your steak. Too thin and the meat will be cooked through before the outside is brown, very thick can result in a charred outside and raw middle. To get the perfect result of a good crust with a juicy interior look for a steak that is at least 2.5 to 3cm thick. Obviously customers in our shop can ask for their steak cut as thick as they like.
- Rare: 2 minutes each side
- Medium: 3.5 minutes each side
- Well Done: 4 minutes each side
You can check how well done your steak is by pressing the surface. The firmer it is, the more well done it is inside. If you are still unsure a small cut will reveal all. Remember it will keep cooking through after you remove from the heat so err on the side of less cooking. Let you steak rest for at least 5 minutes before serving – cover loosely with foil in a warm spot.
Method to cook the sauce
This a rich and creamy sauce with a bit of a kick. Feel free to customise it according to your personal tastes. You can make in advance and keep in the fridge.
First peel the skin from the end of the root exposing the white. Then use a sharp micro grater to shave about three large tablespoons into a bowl. this will be about 4 or 5 cm of the horseradish. Add the mustard and plenty of coarse salt and pepper also a small squeeze of lemon. Now stir in the cream until you have thick sauce.
