Classically served with steak in a good steakhouse, Chimichurri is an incredible sauce that adds huge flavour to red meat. In fact, it replaces mint sauce for us because the last thing we want to do is cover expensive lamb with sugar, cheap vinegar & mint; we want to taste the lamb! Pair this dish with our gorgeous Steak Rub …

Truffle Fries

Truffle Fries take regular fries to a new level! To celebrate this unique flavour, we thought we’d tell you how we make our perfect fries so they’re crisp, crunchy & fluffy on the inside. Twice-cooked or even thrice-cooked is the key to the perfect chip. We’re going for the twice-cooked option here because (obviously) it’s quicker & there’s not a massive …

It would be easy to think the steak is the star of this dish, but we’d argue it’s actually the sauce! Just as a simple buerre noisette can lift any fish dish, this beurre noir gets its name from the addition of a gorgeous balsamic vinegar. Once mastered, this rich, glossy, intense sauce gives such an incredible hit of flavour in just a …

Steak Rub with coffee & pure cacao

Mark Hughes BBQ, Main Courses, Rubs, Taste products 0 Comments

This is a really special rub and one that’s developed into a big hit! We’re often asked what the best rub for steak is – so we made this one especially. But, because we’re purists when it comes to steak, we wanted something that would add to the flavour, not overtake it. Both coffee and chocolate enhance the meaty flavour …

‘Weeping Tiger’ Thai Beef Salad

Mark Hughes Light Lunches, Main Courses, Salads 0 Comments

This has to be one of my absolute favourite salads, bringing back memories of a pub on the outskirts on London I used to live near that specialised in Thai food. I’d find an excuse two or three times a week to visit, sitting in the garden in the summer, but always drinking a cold Thai beer whilst I nibbled …
