The Chef: Howard Kleinberg
The Restaurant: The Food Gang
The Dish: Bone-in Ribeye with Anchovy Butter, served with Smoked Paprika Frites
- 6 Fingerling or 3 Yukon Gold Potatoes
- 2-4 tbsp. Olive Oil
- Kosher Salt to taste
- Fresh Black Pepper to taste
- 3 sprigs Fresh Thyme
- 18 oz. Ribeye Steak
Anchovy Butter Ingredients:
- 1 lb. softened butter
- 1/2 cup chopped capers
- 1/2 cup chopped anchovies
- 2 tbsp. chopped parsley
- 2 tbsp. fresh lemon zest
Method of Preparation:
-For the potatoes, start by seasoning them with salt, pepper, 1 sprig of fresh thyme and 1 tbsp. of olive oil. Place them in a foil lined baking sheet, cover them and put them into a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. You can either finish them off for another 10 minutes in the oven or place in a fryer for a couple of minutes.
-While that's cooking, season your steak on both sides with salt and fresh pepper.
-Then, into hot pan, add extra virgin olive oil, the steak and the rest of the fresh thyme stems. Once it's seared on both sides, put the steak into a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or when steak reaches 120-125 degrees for medium rare and 130-135 degrees for medium.
-Remove the steak and let it rest for five minutes, then slice it.
-For the Anchovy Butter, into a mixer slowly combine one pound of softened butter, 1/2 cup chopped capers, 1/2 cup chopped anchovies, 2 tablespoons chopped parsley and 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon zest. Once it's combined, lay out a piece of plastic wrap, pour in the butter, roll it up tightly and place in the freezer until it's solid.
To Plate the Dish:
Start with some fresh arugula, place the sliced steak on top, a couple of slices of anchovy butter, some fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of olive oil.
Serving Suggestion: Cabernet Sauvignon
