58 Day Dry Aged Beef with Peppercorn Mustard Sauce

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

4 dry aged rib eye steaks, cut to ¾’’

1-2 Tbsp canola oil

1 Tbsp butter

2 thyme sprigs

1 shallot, sliced

1 tsp garlic, minced

1 C Compliments mini bella mushrooms, sliced

1 Tbsp Sensations peppercorn butter

1 C Compliments beef broth

1 Tbsp Chris Brothers grainy dijon mustard

1/3 C whipping cream

2 Tbsp Sensations peppercorn butter

2 Tbsp chives, thinly sliced

Salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste.

Directions:

  1. In a skillet set over medium heat, sauté the shallot in a touch of oil until softened and beginning to colour, about 4 minutes.  Add in the garlic, mushrooms and 1 Tbsp of peppercorn butter.  Cook until the mushrooms are golden brown, and all liquid has evaporated.
  2. Add in the broth and bring to a simmer.  Cook until the liquid has reduced by half.
  3. Stir in the mustard and cream and return to a simmer.  Cook until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove the sauce from the heat and slowly whisk in 2 Tbsp of cold peppercorn butter and the chives.  Season with salt, and lemon juice as needed.  Keep warm until needed.
  5. Season the beef generously with salt and pepper.
  6. Set a cast iron pan over high heat.  Pour in a touch of canola oil.
  7. Just before the oil begins to smoke, add your steaks to the pan.  Let them sit, without moving them, until a nice golden brown crust forms, about 4 minutes.  Flip the steaks, reduce the heat a touch, and toss in the butter and thyme sprigs.  Baste the steaks with the pan juices frequently, and continue cooking until you’ve hit your desired doneness.
  8. Remove the steaks from the pan and pour the pan drippings over the steaks.  Allow to rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.
  9. Serve the Dry Aged steaks with the peppercorn mushroom sauce and some frites for the perfect Steakhouse-at-home experience.

2 tsp thyme, chopped

1 tsp dijon mustard

½ C chicken stock

Salt and pepper

Directions:

  3. In a medium bowl combine the rice or quinoa, raisins, shallot, thyme and mustard.  Mound this mixture in a strip along the center of your butterflied pork, using your hands to pack it in tightly. Bring up the ends of the twine on both sides of the pork and knot tightly, enclosing the filling.

  5. Add half of your oil to an ovenproof skillet set over high heat.  Place pork in centre of skillet or pan, tied-side up. Surround pork with cauliflower mixture and drizzle with remaining oil. Add broth to skillet. Turn stove heat off. Cover skillet tightly with foil.
  6. Roast pork in preheated oven 20 min. Remove foil and continue to roast until juices run clear or a meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of tenderloin reads 160ºF (71ºC), about 5-10 min. Rest tenderloin 5 min. before slicing to serve.

Chef Tip: Ask one of our butchers to butterfly the pork for you!
