Got an eye for a good piece of meat
Had a long day yesterday, music festival, night on the dancefloor (and yes, Naz is cringeworthy while struting his stuff) and then I came home and sat through Utd's game against Ajax (I'd recorded while I was out). We won btw :-)
When I woke up this afternoon I took this beauty out of the fridge and let it warm up. It was about 3-4 inches thick I guess. To go with it I put a simple marinade together. I bashed some rosemary in a mortar and pestle (with salt) then added a little olive oil. I pan fried the Rib Eye joint quickly to get the cooking process going (it helps break the fat down [it doesn't "seal" the meat, that's a myth]). I covered the joint in dijon mustard, pepper and the rosemary mix and bunged it in the oven for a few hours. Served with roast taters and digest for a week!
