    Seared côte de boeuf with herb butter

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes + chilling overnight
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 45 minutes + chilling overnight

    Serves: 2 - 4


    150g butter, very soft
    25g pack fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
    20g pack fresh tarragon leaves, finely chopped
    1 tsp Dijon mustard
    1 tbsp pink peppercorns
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1 No.1 Hereford Beef 30 Day Dry Aged Côte de Boeuf


    1. Put the soft butter in a bowl with the herbs, mustard, peppercorns and garlic and mash with a fork until well incorporated. Scrape onto baking parchment, then roll into a sausage shape, twisting the parchment to secure each end and place in the fridge overnight.

    2. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6 and heat a griddle pan until hot. Sear the beef for 2 minutes on both sides then transfer to a tray. Top the beef with 2 slices of the cold herbed butter, then cook in the oven for 16 minutes for rare, 20 minutes for medium. Place 2 more discs of butter on top of the beef for the last 5 minutes of cooking.

    3. Remove from the oven, top with extra butter (optional), season and leave to rest for at least 10 minutes. Slice thickly and serve with skinny fries, if desired.
