  • Allow to cook for a further 2 or 3 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 Rib per person for large appetites, 1 rib for two for a smaller portion

Cooking Method

  • Set up the barbecue for roasting. Remove the beef from the fridge well ahead of cooking to come to room temperature
  • Season the meat to you taste. Black pepper, mustard and chilli are all good
  • Once the barbecue is ready place the beef, cut side down, directly over the heat

  • Allow to cook for a further 2 or 3 minutes
  • Place the beef in the centre of the barbecue between the two piles of charcoal
  • Put the lid on and leave. A 2 rib piece of meat will take about 45 minutes. Check and serve as you like it
