Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

Flour and Stone Recipes

Baker extraordinaire Nadine Ingram of Sydney's Flour and Stone cooks up a sweet storm for Easter, including the much loved bakery's greatest hit.

Roasted cauliflower salad with yoghurt dressing and almonds

The cauliflower is roasted until it starts to caramelise, which adds extra depth of flavour to this winning salad. Serve it warm or at room temperature.

All Star Yum Cha

What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.

Lemon tart

It's really important to seal the pastry well to prevent any seepage during cooking, and to trim the pastry soon after cooking. Let the tart cool in the tin before removing it, or it will crack.

Spelt cashew and broccoli bowl with yoghurt dressing

This nicely textured salad transports well, making it ideal for picnics or to take to barbecues. The broccoli can be kept raw and shaved on a mandolin, too.

Melbournes finest meet Worlds Best

Leading chefs descend on Melbourne in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. We asked local hospitality folk who they’d abduct for the day and where they’d take them to show off their city. There may be coffee, there may be culture, but in the end it’s cocktails.

Bali's new wave of restaurants, hotels and bars

The restaurant and hotel scene on Australia's favourite holiday island has never been more exciting and Australian chefs, owners and restaurateurs are leading the charge, writes Samantha Coomber.

Rib-eye with hot-mustard coleslaw, bone marrow and pepper sauce


You'll need

4 rib-eye steaks (500gm each) 50 ml olive oil 4 bone marrow pieces (boneless), soaked in cold water overnight   Hot-mustard coleslaw 200 gm white cabbage, shredded 50 gm carrot, shredded 50 gm onion, thinly sliced ½ lemon, juice only 100 gm sour cream 1 tbsp hot English mustard   Pepper sauce 50 ml olive oil 30 gm unsalted butter 300 gm chuck steak, coarsely chopped 4 golden shallots, coarsely chopped 5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 1 small field mushroom, coarsely chopped 2 tbsp (50gm) each coarsely ground black and white pepper 250 ml brandy 300 ml good-quality veal stock ½ bunch thyme 600 ml pouring cream ¼ cup (loosely packed) tarragon leaves, coarsely chopped 2 tsp lemon juice, or to taste

Method

  • 01
  • For hot-mustard coleslaw, combine cabbage, carrot and onion in a non-reactive bowl. Add lemon juice, season to taste, toss to combine. Refrigerate overnight, drain, squeeze out excess liquid with a tea towel, transfer to a bowl. Just before serving, combine remaining ingredients in a separate bowl, add to cabbage, season to taste, toss to combine.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 180C. For pepper sauce, heat oil and butter in a large saucepan over high heat until foaming. Add chuck steak, sauté until brown (3-5 minutes), add shallot and garlic, sauté until golden (5-7 minutes). Add mushroom, cook until golden (3-5 minutes). Add peppers, deglaze with brandy, cook until all liquid has evaporated (1-2 minutes). Add veal stock and thyme, simmer over medium heat until reduced to a thick sauce consistency (10-12 minutes). Add cream, cook until slightly thickened (1-2 minutes). Strain through a fine sieve (discard solids), add tarragon, season to taste with sea salt and lemon juice, set aside, keep warm.
  • 03
  • Heat a large char-grill pan over high heat. Drizzle steaks with oil, season to taste. Grill until browned, turning once (3-4 minutes each side). Place on a wire rack in a baking tray, roast until cooked to your liking (7-9 minutes for medium-rare). Rest, covered loosely with foil, for 5-7 minutes.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, preheat a grill to high. Drain marrow, place on a baking tray, grill until caramelised (2-3 minutes). Serve with rib-eye, coleslaw and pepper sauce.
This recipe is from the September 2009 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“My partner says the 500gm Black Angus rib-eye at Botanical is one of Melbourne’s finest steak dishes. What makes it for him is the pepper sauce. Would chef Stuart McVeigh be so kind as to share the recipe?”
Victoria Cahill, Armadale, Vic
