Curtis Stone’s grilled 80 day dry-aged ribeye with creamed corn and charred scallions

Preparation time
15 mins, plus 10 mins resting time
Cooking time
40 mins
Serves

 

Ingredients

  • 4 large ears of sweet corn husked, divided
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • 2 x 700g 80-day dry-aged bone-in ribeye steaks (5cm thick, spinalis attached)
  • 8 scallions

Method

  1. First, make the corn stock for the creamed corn. Working over piece of parchment paper on cutting board, grate 3 ears of corn, (we use a Lee’s corn cutter) making sure to pass corn over cutter multiple times to collect all corn kernels and corn ‘milk’ from cobs. Carefully transfer corn kernels and corn milk to medium bowl and reserve (there should be about 11/2 cups corn).
  2. Cut each spent corn cob into 3 pieces and place in medium saucepan with 4 cups water. Bring mixture to boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until liquid has reduced by about half and has taken on corn flavor. Strain corn stock. Discard cobs.
  3. To make creamed corn, prepare grill for indirect high heat. For charcoal grill: Fill chimney starter with hardwood lump charcoal and ignite. When coals are covered with white ash, dump them in an even layer on one half of grill, leaving other half of grill empty. Place grill grate in position. Preheat grill grate for 5 minutes. For gas grill: Preheat all burners to high heat. Before grilling, turn half of burners off.
  4. Grill remaining ear of corn, turning as needed, for about 10 minutes, or until kernels are deeply charred all over.
  5. Allow corn to cool slightly, then cut off kernels and reserve kernels.
  6. In medium heavy skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Add reserved grated corn, including its juices. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until most of moisture in corn mixture has cooked out. Add 1/4 cup reserved corn stock and cook for about 2 minutes, or until most of liquid has cooked out. Repeat process 3 more times to use total of about 1 cup corn stock. Stir in reserved charred corn kernels and cook for 30 seconds to rewarm. The consistency at this point should be similar to risotto. Remove pan from heat and stir in butter. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. To grill steaks and scallions, pat steaks dry with paper towels. Lightly coat each steak with oil and season liberally with kosher salt (about 2 teaspoons) and freshly ground black pepper (about 1 teaspoon). Place steaks on unlit side of grill and cover grill. Cook, flipping over halfway through cooking, for about 30 minutes, or until center of steaks registers 43°C on an instant-read thermometer.
  8. Place steaks directly over lit coals, and cook, turning as needed, for about 5 minutes, or until both steaks have charred crust and an internal temperature of 52°C to 54°C for medium-rare. Set steaks aside to rest for 10 minutes.
  9. Grill scallions on hottest part of grill, rotating as needed for about 4 minutes, or until they are charred.
  10. To serve, cut meat from bone and separate eye of ribeye (center piece of meat) from spinalis (outer piece of meat) by cutting through fat that separates the two pieces. Carve each separate piece against grain and serve with creamed corn and scallions.

Hanging with Mr Hong
Words by Mark Hughes on 30 Sep 2015
As a teenager, Dan Hong was a bit of a rebel, emulating the ‘gansta’ life from his heroes in hip hop – doing graffiti, partying and earning the ire of the law. These days, he still has that sassy savoir faire air about him, but as the ‘it’ boy of the Sydney dining scene, a genuine Gen Y foodie trail blazer, he’s too important to ignore, but too cool to care. His resume and achievements are as full as a contented diner at one of his restaurants. Stints at Longrain, Tetsuya’s, Bentley and Marque helped him score the Josephine Pignolet Best Young Chef Award at the 2008 SMH Good Food Guide Awards. Hospitality king Justin Hemmes recognised the potential. Seven years later, Dan is executive chef across three of Merivale Group’s hippest restaurants: Mr Wong, Ms G’s and El Loco. He admits though, that he would never have had any of this had it not been for his mother. Mum knows best Dan grew up in the north-western Sydney suburb of Epping while his mum, Angie, worked tirelessly at the family’s Vietnamese restaurants to give Dan and his sisters a private school education. But after he bombed out of high school, Dan admits he didn’t really know what to do. Fortunately, his mum did. She put him to work in her restaurant, got him into a cooking school and then used her contacts to get him an apprenticeship at Longrain. He’s never looked back. “I never really thought about being in the industry when I was in high school because I took it for granted that my mum had this restaurant,” Dan says. “I enjoyed cooking at home and I enjoyed watching cooking shows like Jamie Oliver, so I thought I would give it a crack.” Dan found his true calling in the kitchens of mentors such as Martin Boetz, Brent Savage and Mark Best, learning Asian, fusion and French. But it was when he cooked the food of US trendsetting chef David Chang (Momofuku) at a special function that Dan’s creative juices truly flowed. In Chang, Dan discovered a guy who broke the rules and managed to tap into the main vein of food fashion – fresh, fast and great tasting – fine dining junk food. Hemmes wanted an Aussie version and entrusted Dan and chef Jowett Yu to do the job, and so Ms Gs was born. A Mexican eating excursion for Dan led to the opening of the pop-up style El Loco. Mr Wong is Hemmes’ most expansive (and expensive) restaurant imagining yet, a Sydneysider’s vision of a hip Cantonese eatery located in the suits and briefcase end of Sydney’s CBD. It’s been wildly successful, scoring a host of awards including Best New Restaurant by SMH in 2014, and recently voted as the ninth best restaurant in the country by chefs and restaurateurs in the Australian Financial Review. The accolades confirm the inspired partnership of two great artists. “He (Justin) has this big vision and I just execute the food,” says Dan. “It’s great.” Hong style Whether it’s called refined dude food, or a super fly feast from a Kayne West of the kitchen, Dan hesitates at labelling his style.   “I don’t want to put myself in this pigeon-hole where diners say, ‘I feel I can only go there on a special occasion’. I want people to come to my places and feel like they can eat there every day. They can also come there for that special occasion, but I just want to be the whole package where people feel comfortable eating my food, drinking good wine and having a great time.” Click below for some of Dan's delicious recipes: Chinese style sashimi scallops with with sugar syrup Grilled king prawns with seaweed salsa verde Carpaccio of wagyu beef with Thai flavours Watch our interview with Dan Hong:
