Reverse Sear Steak | Apply the paste to the all surfaces of the steak evenly, this will act as a binder.

4.

Reverse Sear Steak | Apply cracked pepper to all surfaces of the steak evenly and pat down once done. Option: Wrap tomahawk bone with aluminium foil to prevent discolouring during the cook.

5.

Reverse Sear Steak | Bring the BBQ up to a temp of approx. 110c and and set up for an indirect cooking style. This is when you have the heat source on one side of the cooking chamber and steak placed on the other side. This can be done over fire using charcoal, or by turning on one burner on your gas bbq. Alternatively you can also cook this in an oven.

6.

Reverse Sear Steak | Place the steak on the indirect side of your cooking choice. Until it reaches the following internal temperature. Rare 50C Medium rare 55C Medium 60 Medium /Well 65C.

11.

French Potato Puree | Remove from heat, strain and set aside.

12.

French Potato Puree | With a paring knife, peel back the skin of the potato. Put potatoes aside into a bowl. I tend to use a cotton glove with a nitrle gloves to do this as it prevents burning your hands.
