    So I decided to have some steak for dinner

    Ingredients:

    STEAK (rib fillet on the bone is my fav cut, so i used ~620g pieces in this)
    potatoes
    butter
    red wine
    beef stock (i used consomme)
    bay leaves
    spinache
    garlic
    french shallots
    salt
    pepper

    I had to get the woolies butchers to cut up a new piece of rib fillet for me, i asked for some BIG ones, and they happily obliged

    Start early on the sauce as the steak, potatoes and spinach only take 20 mins, and you need to reduce the stock by a fair amount.

    loosely following the guide from this recipe: http://www.bestrecipes.com.au/recipe/Red-Wine-Jus-L6376.html

    cut shallots

    caramelise in pan

    add red win/bay leaf and reduce
    [​IMG]

    let that simmer and reduce

    start the steak by searing it to create a nice crust (maillard effect ftw)

    Stack the steaks like you mean it!

    And into the overn for 12-18 mins, depending on how you like them done, i did 15 mins for medium rare

    while they are in the oven, work on the potatoes, cut them and was them, boil until soft and mash like a crazy dog

    no pics of the spinach, but basically add butter to a hot pan, add garlic, add olive oil, add spinach, toss until wilted and done, and take off heat, pretty simple.

    and drum roll please .......

    finished product!

    That looks so delicious it's not funny. At first glimpse of the second last photo I thought to myself 'paper plates :D'.

    Then I realised they weren't :(

    Looks great, the price of the steaks seems a bit excessive to me, ill have to see what they get them for at work.

    They look delicious. We had some of these recently and they were awesome. One thing that I like to do with them is truss them up with string so that it compacts the meat and keeps it in that nice circular shape. When it's a more regular shape, you get very even cooking and it ends up even more juicy - love a good steak with spinach and spuds.

    Agreed, about the time I go to the supermarket the butcher has gone home for the day.

    Luckily there's two gourmet Italian butchers close by to work, as well as a meat wholesaler and the butcher close home also is pretty decent, so its always easy to get some decent ribeyes.

    lol, If you think about it, $12.5 for a steak that's ~600gm isn't expensive, just gotta break it down, $50 is for all 4 of them
