My Sunday Photo – The 8 Hour Steak

My Sunday Photo for this week is titled The 8 Hour Steak

The title for this photo pretty well says it all. This excellent scotch fillet (rib eye) spent a glorious eight hours in the oven at just 60 degrees Celsius. I turned the oven up to 120 for the final 10 minutes. The 8 hour steak is an ultimate example of my cooking motto – low and slow.

 

8 hour steak, scotch fillet

 

The result was a perfectly succulent and tender steak inside, with an all over caramelised crust. I also made a chimichurri sauce to go with it, but in true World’s Worst Food Blogger style, we ate all of that before I thought to take a photo.

If you love a good steak, so much so that you are willing to spend a whole day cooking it, then go ahead and give the 8 hour steak a go. I promise the result is worth it, if you get it right!

    I tend to cook all my meat long and slow like this, it does make it so tender. 60 is low and that does look amazing.

      I do roasts on about 90 when I have a whole day. Can’t go wrong with low and slow!

    Oh my! That does look good! I’m not sure my husband would be prepared tp wait so long for his steak, but if I sneaked it in without him knowing I know he’d love it… How often I have forgotten to take photos until after the event is nobodies business!

    I would never have thought of doing this with a steak. What a great way to cook it! Who knows, I may try it myself when I get a chance. Certainly looks good. #MySundayPhoto

      Worth a crack if you ever find yourself with a slab of meat and 8 hours to kill.

    As much as I love slow cooked meat, steak is not one of my favourites. I’m sure the men of the household would love it though, it does look succulent.

      Maybe you just haven’t had the right steak…
