Ingredients

For the Beef:
Pure South Whole Beef Rib Eye (approx 1.5kg)
2 garlic cloves, minced
10 Superb Herb Thyme & Rosemary sprigs
Handful of Superb Herb Sage
Olivado Avocado Oil Infused With Rosemary
Zest of 1 orange & lemon
Mrs Rogers Coarse Sea Salt & Black Pepper

For the Bearnaise Sauce:
150g Mainland Salted Butter, cubed
½ cup DYC White Wine Vinegar
⅓ cup water
½ cup shallots, thinly sliced
1 ¼ cups Superb Herb Texas Tarragon, roughly chopped
1/2 tsp Mrs Rogers Black Peppercorns
3 Woodland Egg yolks

Pair with Montana Reserve Pinot Noir 2018

Directions

1
For the Beef: Preheat oven to 200C.
2
Tie rib eye with string at 5cm intervals. Rub with garlic, orange zest and avocado oil. BBQ or sear on a high heat until browned all over.
3
Once seared, tuck thyme, rosemary and sage underneath the strings. Season with salt and pepper, then place on a roasting dish.
4
Roast for 60 mins for rare, 75 mins for medium rare or 90 mins for well done. Cover with foil and let rest for 20 mins before carving.
5
For the Bearnaise Sauce: Add fresh chopped tarragon, the black peppercorns, white wine vinegar, water and shallots to a saucepan and bring to a simmer on medium heat. Turn down to medium low heat and reduce liquids down to 3 tbsp, about 15 mins. Strain, keeping the liquid, and set aside.
6
Melt the butter in a saucepan or microwave until bubbling. Wait for a minute for the butter to “clarify”, meaning the milk solids separate from the golden butter liquid.
7
In a food processor, blitz the egg yolks and hot vinegar mixture and blitz for 1 minute. Slowly drizzle in the hot clarified butter while the food processor is on full speed. Once all the clarified butter is added, keep blitzing for another 2-3 minutes.

Serve roast beef with bearnaise sauce. Divine.
