Rib Eye Steak with Pepper Sauce

Prep Time
Total Time

We were lucky enough to live in Dubbo, New South Wales, where we could source some of the best steaks ever tried (according to our visitors). You can cook something perfectly but if the base product is sub-standard, well, so will the meal.

A pepper sauce adds another layer of flavour and the coleslaw is also great if you are looking to keep the carbohydrates to a minimum.

If carbs do not faze you then baked spuds or a potato salad works nicely as well.

Rib Eye with pepper sauce


  • 2 rib-eye steaks
  • 2 tablespoons macadamia oil
Note: Why macadamia oil? Nut oils have a higher smoking point than vegetable oils. Something you will appreciate if you are cooking inside. Besides, macadamia are native to Australia and grown right here.
Hot Mustard Coleslaw
  • 200 g shredded cabbage
  • 1 medium shredded carrot
  • 1 thinly sliced medium brown onion 
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon hot English mustard
  • 100 g sour cream
Pepper Sauce
  • 60 g butter
  • 1/2 medium brown onion finely diced
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
  • 60 ml red wine
  • 2 cups beef stock (master stock is perfect)
