Onglet or hanger steak.. In my view THE best steak there is.. Stunning.. Hard to get ahold of unless you can make good friends with a butcher..
And I have just that butcher!!
Ian in Earls Barton.. A superb butchers.. A wonderful provenance, keen eye for great beasts and a lovely sense of humour to boot!
Ok it’s a bit of a journey for me yet it’s worth it . This is old school butchery.. Proper ..
After a good catch up ( it’s been a while since I last visited ) .. And a study of the cold room.. Ian cut me the most fine and fantastic whole onglet.. A cut often found in France yet so tough to find elsewhere!
That’s him pointing out the cut in the pic!
This steak needs to be cooked real quick. Like really quick!! So onto that in a moment..
To go with the mouthwatering delight? Hassleback potatoes.. Good ‘muddy’ spuds for this . Cuts made into the spud.. Skewered and coated in Mrs Middletons pimped Lebanese herb oil .. Wild fresh rosemary spears popped into the cuts.. Cooked till crisp.. These are great.. It’s like a multi spudula .. Fries, baked and semi roast all in one .. How cool is that!!!
A topping of sour cream and snipped chives from the garden .. With some crisped pieces of Mr Fitz home cured belly bacon.
And the steak.. Simply seasoned and placed into a hot pan.. Ttssshhhh tttssshhhh tttttssssshhhh DONE!!
Served with a great pimped butter from my pal jack.. Delicious flavours!! Thanks Jack!
And a drop of horseradish ..
Frickin delicious baby!!
Loved this supper.. Can’t wait to get my paws on another fine onglet .. Wonderful! Thanks Ian the butcher !!
