Gourmet Grill Video Recipe 1/5: Spiced Cote du Boeuf cooked ‘dirty’

June 21st, 2019 Food

Cote du Boeuf sounds fancy, but it is just the French term for bone-in ribeye. It’s surprisingly easy to cook this impressive hunk of meat on the BBQ. In this one minute video Kat shows you how to mix up a delicious marinade with just four ingredients and flash cooks the beef on the coals before finishing off on the grill.

Marinating overnight infuses the meat with the spices, and then removing the excess before cooking prevents it from burning. Cooking ‘dirty’ straight on the coals makes sure the beef has a really good, charred flavour. Finishing on the grill gives you more control over how cooked you’d like your meat and allows you to BBQ your vegetables and other meats whilst the beef finishes off.



2.4kg 2-rib piece of beef

3tbsp olive oil

2tsp ground cumin

2tsp allspice

2tsp ground cardamom


  1. Wipe the beef with damp kitchen paper
  2. Pour 1 tbsp of oil into a small bowl. Add the spices and seasoning. Mix together. Rub the spice mixture all over the beef. Cover and marinate for 4 hours in the fridge or overnight.
  3. Remove from the fridge at least 1 hour before grilling and prepare the barbecue.
  4. When the coals are white hot, spread them out to make an even & flat surface for the beef.
  5. Wipe off the excess marinade and place the beef directly on the coals. Allow each side to get some colour (about 2 mins each side).
  6. Transfer to cooler side of BBQ and cook for 35-45 mins as preferred. Baste with the leftover marinade & extra oil if every 15 minutes to prevent drying.
  7. Allow it to rest for at least 15 minutes before carving.
