Côte de Bœuf Sunday lunch

I love a Sunday lunch but don’t like spending hours cooking as we tend to have swimming in the morning and plans in the afternoon. This is a great lunch for the family but is done and dusted inside 30 minutes and extremely tasty to boot.


1 Côte de Bœuf, allow 160-200 gr per person

3 potatoes per person

Handful Baby corn

3 cloves garlic

2 sprigs fresh rosemary

3 tbsp Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper


Preheat your oven to 200C fan and remove your beef from the fridge and any packaging as early as possible on the day you cook it.

When ready to cook, oil and salt and pepper both sides of the beef and brush with the rosemary sprig.

Heat a heavy base pan with olive oil on medium heat. Peel and cube your potatoes and add to the pan with 2 peeled garlic cloves and a sprig of rosemary. Heat with a lid on and stir until all sides are browned. Cool for around 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Do not let the garlic burn.

Meanwhile in an oven proof frying pan brown the beef on all sides with a clove of peeled garlic and rosemary sprig and transfer to the preheated oven for 12 minutes for rare. Once cooked, transfer the beef to a wooden board and let it rest for around 10 minutes.

Blanche your baby corn and greens in sat water for 4 minutes. Once cooked transfer to the oven in the pan containing the beef while the beef rests.

Plate up to serve. I like to serve this with tomato salad.
