Method:

Perfect Steak

  • Preheat a heavy-based fry pan, char grill pan or barbecue on high heat. Brush steak with extra oil, then season with salt. Reduce heat to medium-high, then cook steak for 15 minutes each side for medium-rare.
  • Place thyme, rosemary, garlic and olive oil in a shallow dish with freshly ground black pepper and a couple of pinches of coarse sea salt. Place the cooked steak in the dish, cover with foil and set aside in a warm place for 15 minutes to rest, turning once.
  • As a rule, you should rest meat for half as long as you cook it, juices redistribute and meat becomes tender.

Potato Gratin

  • Rub a tray with butter, press the crushed garlic into the butter.
  • Place sliced potatoes and cover in cream and milk, topped with salt, pepper and bake at 160C for about 1 hour or until potatoes are tender and golden.
  • Top with chives.

Our friends at Wine Selectors suggest pairing this dish with a Red Willow Bridge Estate Dragonfly Shiraz or White Iron Cloud Pepperilly Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2019
