Côte De Bœuf is one of the finest cuts of steak and a delicious treat for beef lovers. Popular across the country and the continent alike a single Côte De Bœuf is usually served as a meal for two.
By leaving this magnificent steak on the bone in the classic French style, gives an extra element of flavour penetrating through the meat. With a good balance of fat and meat, the Côte De Bœuf provides an exceptional eating sensation.
As with all of our beef, the Côte De Bœuf comes from our native Red Ruby cattle, 100% grass fed and hung on the bone for four weeks.
The shape of each steak will vary slightly. Each steak weighs approximately 900g.
100% Grass Fed Beef
Remove the cote du boeuf from its packaging and leave to fully defrost, this will take about a day. Alternatively, place the steak in its plastic packaging into a sink full of cool water, it will thaw in just a couple of hours.
Once thawed, leave the steak out and allow it to come to room temperature.
Pat dry and generously season on both sides with salt and black pepper.
Place a cast iron pan over a medium-high heat and to the pan dollop in a little beef dripping or oil.
Once the fat is sizzling lay the steak into the pan, being careful not to move it.
After 3 minutes, or once the steak has built up a beautiful caramelised crust, flip it over onto the other side and cook for a further 3 minutes.
Reduce the heat so it’s more like medium than medium-high and cook for a further 4 minutes, turning the steak to the other side after each minute.
To the pan add a generous knob of butter and baste the steak with the foaming butter for a further 3-4 minutes.
When you touch the steak it should have a slight spring to it. Alternatively, use a meat thermometer and check the steak has reached 50C. This should cook your steak to a perfect medium/rare.
Leave to rest for at least 15 minutes before carving.
All of our meat is delivered frozen ready to pop straight into your freezer, once defrosted these can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days.
