For the Steak

  • 12oz Bone-in ribeye

For the Dirty Baste

  • 1 stalk Fresh Rosemary taken of the stalk
  • 2 stalks fresh Thyme taken off the stalk
  • Bunch of Flat Leaf Parsley
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • I Anchovy fillet
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil



Blitz all the ingredients for the Dirty Baste together


You will need your grill loaded with red hot, quality lumpwood charcoal. Please do not use instant light or briquettes or lava rocks


Give the coals a blast of air to remove excess ash and ensure they are red hot. Place your steak directly on the coals, do not press or move, just leave it alone for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes flip the steaks, baste generously on the cooked side and cook for another 3 minutes. This will give you a rare dirty steak. If you want to ensure the steak is cooked how you like, use a digital thermometer probe.


Once cooked tent with foil (not tightly wrapped) and leave for 5-10 minutes, this allows the steak to rest and makes it more tender. Slice and serve drizzled with more of the dirty baste
