Rib Eye Steak With Onion Rings And Rocket
It might not be quite what one would get at Rockpool, but at a tiny fraction of the price, something quite delicious can be prepared at home. Yes I am talking about a beautiful piece of steak. There are no fancy sauces or side dishes, I serve the perfectly cooked steaks with some herb butter, crispy onion rings and some dressed rocket. A very satisfying meal indeed (if only I had baked a pudding as well!)
P.S The whole meal cost around $35 which is less than the cheapest serve of steak at Rockpool, so before saving up for a great meal there this will do for the time being.
preheated oven at 200 C
3 pieces of organic steak on the bones (I bought a rib eye roast and cut into 3)
3 large brown onions, thickly sliced
1/2 l of full cream milk
100 g of butter
a handful each of thyme, parsley and basil
salt and pepper to taste
oil for frying
For the herb butter - place butter and herbs in a food processor and whiz til combine.
Season steaks well and brown steaks all over on a hot griddle.
Place in a hot oven for 9 - 10 minute (medium rare) checking after 7 minutes for doneness. Rest meat for 5 minutes.
Soak sliced onions with milk for 20 minutes, drain well and drench with flour.
Fry onion rings in batches, drain well and season generously with sea salt.
We had a wonderful bottle of Bishop Shiraz to go with our meal courtesy of the tummy.
