Rib-eye steak with savoury butter
Simple Rib-eye steak with a homemade savoury butter similar to a Maitre d'Hotel Sauce.
First buy your quality Yorkshire Dales steaks, here we are using the butchers favourite Rib-eye, approx 8oz or 250g each and about an inch thick. Always let your steak warm a little by taking out of the fridge at least half an hour before you start cooking.
Ingredients for the Maitre d'Hotel Sauce:-
- 4oz local butter, diced and softened but not melted
- 2 tbsp chopped parsley or chives
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- Dash Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
Its best to make the butter a couple of hours before you need to use it so it can chill and harden in the fridge. soften the butter and mix with the chives/parsley, garlic, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, mustard, Worcestshire sauce and black pepper & salt to taste. Roll into a log or roll and cover with cling film and put back in the fridge to harden, after a couple of hours you can cut coin sized pieces of the butter.
To cook the steak brush with olive oil and fresh black pepper add to a HOT heavy pan, griddle or BBQ and sear, turn over and brush the other side with oil and pepper and sear again, then reduce the heat and cook for the required time.
2-3 minutes on each side for Rare, 3-4 mins each side for Medium and for Well Done reduce the heat and cook for 8-10 minutes, the most important bit is then let your steak REST for at least 5 mins, put on a plate and cover with tin foil and rest for 5 to 10 minutes. To finish add a couple of the coins of butter on top of the steak and allow to melt or flash under the grill quickly.
The Maitre d'Hotel Sauce sauce has parsley and the chive version is more of a savoury butter.

Steak & Kidney Pudding
How to make delicious Steak and Kidney Pudding:
For the suet crust pastry:
- 12 oz (350 g) self-raising flour
- 6 oz (175 g) shredded beef suet
- pinch salt and freshly milled black pepper
For the filling:
- 1¼ lb (560 g) chuck steak
- 10 oz (275 g) ox kidney
- 2 level tablespoons well-seasoned flour
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 1 teaspoon Hendersons relish
- salt and freshly milled black pepper
For the steak and kidney gravy:
- 1 onion, halved
- 1 teaspoon beef dripping
- 1 heaped dessertspoon flour
- Hendersons Relish
- Salt and freshly milled black pepper
To make the pastry, first sift the flour and the salt into a large mixing bowl. Add some freshly milled black pepper, then add the suet and mix it into the flour using the blade of a knife. When it's evenly blended, add a few drops of cold water and start to mix with the knife, using curving movements and turning the mixture around. The aim is to bring it together as a dough, so keep adding drops of water until it begins to get really claggy and sticky. Bring it all together with your hands until you have a nice smooth elastic dough, which leaves the bowl clean. Suet pastry always needs more water than other types, so if it is still a bit dry just go on adding a little more.
After that, take a quarter of the dough for the lid, then roll the rest out to a good thickness. What you need is a circle, about 30 cm in diameter.
Now line the bowl with the pastry, pressing it well all around.
Next chop the steak and kidney into fairly small cubes (reserving the trimmings for the gravy), toss them in the seasoned flour, then add them to the pastry-lined basin with the slices of onion. Add enough cold water to reach almost the top of the meat and sprinkle in a few drops of Hendersons Relish and another seasoning of salt and pepper.
Roll out the pastry lid, dampen its edges and put it in position on the pudding. Seal well and cover with a double sheet of foil, pleated in the centre to allow room for expansion while cooking.
Now secure it with string, making a little handle so that you can lift it out of the hot steamer. Then place it in a steamer over boiling water. Steam for 5 hours, topping up the boiling water halfway through. To make the gravy, simply place the meat trimmings in a saucepan with the half onion, cover with 1 pint of water, add some seasoning and simmer for approximately 1 hour. Then strain the stock, and in the same pan fry the remaining onion, chopped small, in the beef dripping until soft and blackened at the edges. Then stir in the flour, gradually add the stock little by little to make a smooth gravy, adding a spot of gravy browning if it's needed.
Taste to check the seasoning and add a few drops of Hendersons Relish. You can either serve the pudding by spooning portions straight out of the bowl, or slide a palette knife round the edge and present on a platter.

Barbequed Rosemary Lamb with Salsa Verde
Barbequed Rosemary Lamb with Salsa Verde Serves 6
- Get you butcher to cut you 6 butterflied lamb portions from ½ a large leg
- A dozen good springs of rosemary
- 6 garlic cloves
- 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
- A few good twists of black pepper
- Salsa Verde (see below)
Bruise the rosemary needles by rubbing the sprigs in your hand, and strip the needles into a bowl. Add the garlic, olive oil and pepper and then the meat. Toss all together and leave for at least two hours (4-6 hours, even better).
Remove the meat from the marinade and wipe it lightly (you don’t want it dripping with oil), but leave the bits of garlic and rosemary sticking to it. Place the portions over a fairly hot, but not flaming grill. Let the meat sear on the bars for a couple of minutes and they should turn without sticking, then turn them every couple of minutes to prevent too much blackening on one side. Butter flied pieces should take between 9-15 minutes.
- 1 small garlic clove
- A good bunch of flat leaf parsley, trimmed of stalks
- 15-20 basil leaves
- 3-4 sprigs of tarragon
- 4-5 anchovy fillets
- 1 teaspoon capers
- 1 teaspoon of mustard
- A pinch of sugar
- A few drops of lemon juice
- 2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Freshly ground black pepper
Finely chop the garlic on a large chopping board. Then add the herbs, anchovies, and capers and chop all together until the ingredients are well mixed and fine in texture. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the mustard, sugar, lemon juice and black pepper, plus enough olive oil to give a glossy, spoonable consistency. As you add the last ingredients, taste and tweak the mixture till you get something the balance you like.
Loin of Lamb with Beetroot Chutney, Colcannon, Roasted Veg and Fleurie Jus
Loin of Lamb with Ledston Estate Beetroot Orange Chutney, Colcannon Potatoes, Roasted Vegetables and Fleurie Jus
This dish works well for dinner parties as everything can be prepared in advance. Just part cook the lamb and finish off with the other ingredients before serving. Serves 4
- 4 portions of trimmed lamb loin, ideally marinated overnight with some olive oil, fresh thyme, rosemary and chopped slivers of garlic (4 cloves). Leave overnight in the fridge covered in cling film on a low shelf.
- Colcannon Potato Cakes
- 4 medium Desiree potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
- 1 leek, outer leaves removed, sliced into 2 longways, washed and then sliced again into small pieces
- ¼ savoy cabbage, core and outer leaves removed and finely sliced
- ½ bunch spring onions, washed and cut into small rounds
- ¼ packet of butter
- 2 tablespoons double cream
- salt and pepper to taste
- Boil the potatoes until soft then drain. Return to the pan and place back on the heat for 1 minute stirring with a wooden spoon – this will remove any excess moisture. Mash using a ricer machine or potato masher.
Add half the butter and all the double cream and set aside.
- Fry the leeks, cabbage and spring onions in the remaining butter until soft (trying not to colour – leeks will burn easily if you forget them!).
- Add the above to the potatoes and season with salt and pepper.
- Mould the mash into round cakes and dust with a little four. Leave to one side.
You can use whatever you want but here we are using:
- 1 butternut squash, peeled and de-seeded and cut into 1cm bits
- 2 parsnips, peeled and cut into 1cm bits
- 2 carrots, peeled and cut into 1cm bits
- 4 sticks of celery, peeled and cut into 1cm bits
- 4 bundles of green beans, topped and tailed and cut into 1cm bits
- Olive oil
- Salt and Pepper

- 2 tablespoons “runny” honey
- Place all the vegetables on a tray and drizzle with the olive oil and honey.
- Sprinkle over the thyme leaves, season with salt and pepper and place in the oven to roast on 180° for approx 10 minutes. Stir once during this time to disperse the different flavours and ensure even cooking.
- When cooked remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tray.
- When serving drain away any excess oil and honey.
Don’t panic, this can be as easy as you like!
- 2 shallots, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 large glass of Fleurie (other red wine or port would do)
- 1 tablespoon of chopped mixed fresh herbs (parsley, chive, mint, tarragon, basil)
- 1 pint of reduced game stock (to cheat buy it from the supermarket!)
- 4 dice size knobs of butter
- Fry the shallots in 1 knob of butter and when they are soft (but no colour) add the Fleurie and boil until there is hardly anything left.
- Next add the stock, bring it to the boil and reduce to a thick consistency (the gelatine from the bones in the stock will help to do this).
- Remove the pan from the stove and whisk in the 3 remaining knobs of butter.
- Correct the seasoning and throw in the chopped herbs.
To assemble the dish
- Heat a non stick frying pan and place the seasoned lamb into the pan after draining off any excess oil.
