In conjunction with Westholme’s A Cut Of Freedom campaign, chef-owner Shaun Gian of Steakville shares his recipe for Beef Graisse Scented 64°C Sous Vide Egg with Westholme Ribeye Cap Confit, where the richness of wagyu fat and ribeye cap (an exceptionally buttery, marbled piece of meat that, together with the ribeye steak, make up the prime rib) gets tempered by the mildness of a wobbly sous-vide egg; and rounded out with savoury herbs.
