The Audacious Rib Eye

Ingredients HIDE SHOW

  • Ingredients for 4
  • 4 thick quality rib eye steaks
  • 2 tbsp high quality coffee beans
  • 2 tbsp black peppercorns
  • ½ tbsp Smoked Maldron salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, skin on
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • 1 kg of peeled thick cut potatoes or chunky chips
  • Simple green salad with olive oil and balsamic

Coffee creates a delicious crust that enhances the flavours of the meat.

  1. Preheat your oven to 200℃ and place peeled and chopped potatoes with a little olive oil, or ready-made chunky chips, into the oven to bake for 20-30 minutes.  
  2. Open your bottle of PepperBox Shiraz to let the wine breathe. 
  3. Combine the coffee beans, black peppercorns & salt to a fine ground with a pestle & mortar.
  4. Add the chopped red chilli and smoked paprika to complete the mixture.
  5. Rub each rib eye steak in the mixture and leave to rest for a few minutes to allow the meat to reach room temperature.
  6. Heat griddle on high heat until it’s smoking, crush and throw in the garlic cloves and fry each steak 2-3 minutes on each side for medium rare.
  7. Leave to rest for 10 minutes covered in tin foil. 
  8. Plate it up basting with the cooking juices and sprinkle with some Maldron Salt.
  9. Serve with chips and a simple green salad on the side. 
  10. Enjoy with a glass of PepperBox Shiraz.
