Serves: 4 Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

  • PARMESAN POTATOES

  • 6 medium potatoes, quartered lengthways
  • 250ml (1 cup) fresh cream
  • a handful of grated Parmesan
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • RIBS

  • 125ml (½ cup) dark soy sauce
  • 125ml (½ cup) Worcestershire sauce
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) red wine
  • 4 dry-aged prime ribs
  • BÉARNAISE SAUCE

  • 250g butter
  • 100ml white wine vinegar
  • 2,5ml (½ tsp) black peppercorns
  • fresh tarragon, chopped, to taste
  • 3 large egg yolks

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

2

For the potatoes, place the potatoes in a deep roasting pan. Pour over the cream and sprinkle with the Parmesan. Season to taste. Bake until cooked through, about 45 minutes.

3

For the ribs, prepare a kettle braai with oak roots or another wood that will smoke.

4

Combine the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and red wine.

5

Once the braai is hot and smoking, grill the ribs. Keep basting the meat and keep the braai closed as much as possible to allow the smoke to get into the meat. Once cooked, remove from the braai and leave to stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

6

For the Béarnaise sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan.

7

Combine the vinegar, peppercorns and tarragon in another saucepan and reduce by about three quarters. Strain. Pour the sauce into a food processor, add the egg yolks and blend. Slowly add the melted butter to thicken.

8

Serve the ribs with the potatoes and the sauce.
