This is one of my favourite things to cook over wood fire. It’s SUPER aromatic as it cooks and is a real show stopper if you’re into impressing onlookers with your BBQ skills. I really love the umami hit Geo Watkins Mushroom Ketchup gives to the shallots. There’s also something really primitive and special about using the skins of the shallots as a means of steaming them (zero need for foil). IMHO Rib-eye is the ideal cut for this dish. The fat and marbling is perfectly rich and buttery and really compliments the shallots. I was feeding 2 hungry chaps as we made this and served it simply on a large chopping board.
