Shopping list:

  • 2 Rib Eye steaks
  • 150ml white wine vinegar
  • 1 brown onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 120grams melted butter
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 potatoes, diced
  • 8 brussel sprouts
  • 8 mushrooms
  • Sea salt & cracked white pepper

  • Step 1

    In a small saucepan bring to the boil the white wine vinegar together with the sliced brown onion and the dried tarragon until it has reduced to a syrup. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    In a large metal bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and the tarragon reduction until the mixture has thickened, but not curdled. Do this over a pot of simmering water to help reduce the heat. You should be able to do a figure of 8 and it stand up in the bowl.

  • Step 3

    Sit the bowl on the bench and slowly whisk in the melted butter until it forms a thick emulsion. Season with salt & pepper and add the chopped fresh thyme.

  • Step 4

    In an oven tray seasoned with salt & pepper and a little vegetable oil add the potatoes, Brussel sprouts and mushrooms at 180C for around 15-20 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Pre heat a grill pan for 15 minutes on high. Then season the rib eye steaks with a little oil and the sea salt & cracked pepper.

  • Step 6

    Sear each side of the steak for 2-3 minutes or until caramelized brown. Place on an oven tray and place in a preheated oven for 4-5 minutes or cooked to your liking. Remove and let rest for 4-5 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Arrange the vegetables on a platter, arrange the rib eye on top and serve the béarnaise sauce on the side.
