Cote de boeuf reverse seared over alder wood served with poutine

A while ago, a butcher had 5 racks of beef ribs for not a lot of money. Whilst epic in size, that was too much for just SWMBO and me. I cut them down into 5 single ribs and hey presto ... an epic meal for two. Or three if the rib was extra big. Which is what we did last night, a friend came over for a comparative champagne tasting of two Blanc de Noirs before dinner.


When our guest arrived, I put the cote de boeuf into the large Egg and smoked it over alder wood at 225C until it hit 125F, aided by the meater+. I put in some mushrooms with Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express and a little butter, wrapped in foil, with about 45 mins to go. We enjoyed the champagnes. 




Then I removed the meater+ and seared the rib over hot coals in the MMX, coated with a little butter. 



Served with poutine and brocolli, we had a 2006 Ch. Feytit Clinet and 2012 Annaperenna Shiraz. 




Thanks for looking!

  • Must have been a great friend for you to share such a special evening and meal with them. Wasn’t familiar with the term “blanc de noirs”. Nice selection of libations as well. 

    Thanks for sharing.

    Did you use shredded cheese for the poutine 👀👀👀?

    That is off the charts across the board. Great evening and the $$ shot plate is screen licking material right there.  Incredible.

    Thanks folks. @paqman I used shredded mozzarella, procuring cheese curds over here is a non-starter. I was in the Hollow Log Cafe diner in Caledonia a couple of years ago, the owner said that when she couldn't get cheese curds she used shredded mozzarella as a substitute.

    Haha, I have fond memories of eating poutine made with shredded mozzarella at a delicatessen with my dad.  We have a local place that will give you the choice between cheese curds and shredded mozzarella.  I’m pretty sure that cheese curds are actually made of cheddar cheese.  All that being said, I am not a fan of poutine unless it has just a little bit of sauce; given the choice, I’ll choose fries.

    Nice looking meal!
