We spent Saturday night at a Christmas fair in Kent with some friends of ours. It was a particularly wet and miserable night so we were glad to get back to their house to dry out and get on with dinner. We had originally planned to visit a butcher they had found in Canterbury but our plans changed so Stephen and I picked up some rib-eye steaks from our local butcher and took those instead.

The steaks were huge and although I can’t remember where they came from, I do remember they were aged on-site. Stephen simply fried them to medium-rare and we ate them with baked potatoes, salad and sauteed mushrooms. They were good but unfortunately we didn’t manage to achieve the perfect crust, one of the pitfalls when cooking in someone else’s kitchen.

    When I was told to salt the steaks half an hour beforehand I was skeptical, but it works – it draws the moisture out so you can get a nice crust on it.

  2. I am a steak fiend! I love it! A little garlic butter on top goes a long way too…medium rare for me though my mad mother goes for blue everytime! roasted tomatoes and courgettes and peppers with a little soy make a great accompaniment too I think! xxx

    That’s a good tip, Lizzie, thanks.

    We did consider using some garlic butter or blue cheese actually but didn’t get round to it.
