Method:

ROMESCO SAUCE METHOD:

 

    • Once hot, place the bullhorn peppers and the long red chill is onto the grill and cook on all sides giving a light charred effect.

 

    • As they start to soften, remove from the heat, place into a bowl and cover with clingwrap and allow to steam for around 15 minutes.

 

    • Remove from the bowl and clean the peppers, removing the skin and the seeds, making sure to remove the white membrane from the inside.

 

    • Place the peppers and chilli on kitchen paper to remove excess moisture and set aside.

 

    • Drain the excess moisture from the piquillo peppers and scrape off any of the remaining charred skin.

 

    • Place all the peppers, chilli, vinegar, garlic, smoked paprika and chilli flakes into a food processor and pulse to break up and combine.

 

    • Add in the toasted almonds and continue to pulse to form a lumpy texture.

 

    • Next, drizzle in the olive oil while the food processor is running.

 

    • Season with salt and pepper.

 

    • Remove and place into a bowl and set aside until required.

 

ROASTED T-BONE METHOD:

    • Remove the T-Bone from the refrigerator approximately 2 hours prior to cooking.

 

    • Pre heat the oven to 210°C fan forced.

 

    • Rub the T-Bone all over with olive oil then season heavily with salt and freshly milled coarse black pepper.

 

 

    • Place the T-Bone fat side down onto the grill bars so that you start to render some of the fat down.

 

    • Turn the steak and grill hard on all sides including the bone so that you get a good crust.

 

    • This should take around 6 minutes to make sure you have enough heat into the steak and get the best crust possible.

 

 

    • Remove the steak from the oven and place on a wire rack, with a tray underneath. Cover lightly with aluminium foil. Set aside to rest for 30 minutes. Do not skip this step, resting steak is very important.

 

    • Slice each side against the grain and serve on a hot plate.

 

    • Season with a little more salt, a drizzle of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon.

 

POTATOES METHOD:

    • Pre heat the oven at 185°C fan forced

 

    • Peel the potatoes and rinse under water.

 

    • Using a mandolin, slice the potatoes into rounds about 1-2mm thick.

 

    • Lightly rinse and then pat dry with a cloth and place into a clean bowl.

 

 

    • Pour the melted butter over the potato slices and coat.

 

    • Season with salt and toss together to coat evenly with the butter and seasoning.

 

 

    • Overlap the slices until the pan is filled tightly – don’t be too fussy about the slices being even. Dust the top of the potatoes with the smoked paprika.

 

    • Cook for 40 minutes until golden and crisp.

 

    • Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving.

 

    • You can reheat in the oven at 180°C for 10 minutes if required.
