Rib of beef with rosemary: Cook with Jamie by Jamie Oliver
- 3 cloves of garlic, unpeeled
- zest and juice of 1 lemon
- a small bunch of rosemary tied together to make a little brush
- extra virgin olive oil
- 1 x 1.2kg rib of beef
Put the garlic, lemon zest and tip of rosemary brush in a pestle and mortar, add a glug of olive oil and bash together. Use the brush to rub half of this marinade over your steak and leave for at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.
Heat ovenproof griddle pan on the hob until white hot. Season the steak really well and fry it in the pan without moving for a couple of minutes. Turn it over, baste it with the leftover marinade and put it in the oven for 20 minutes. Turn the steak over every 5 minutes and continue to baste with the marinade. This should cook it to medium. When cooked squeeze over some lemon juice and rest for 5 minutes.
Great with char-grilled spring onions and romesco sauce.
Eaten while Charlie’s eye turned red from the pain of teething.
