Chef Stéphane Décotterd recently retained his prestigious Michelin star, together with an outstanding 18/20 rating from the Gault&Millau guide. To celebrate, we offer a meaty marvel from the master chef’s recipe collection.

The Maison Décotterd team: winners all round.

Wagyu beef is famed worldwide for its flavor, tenderness and marbling, delivering a luxuriously tasty and satisfying dining experience.

This recipe from Stéphane Décotterd uses short ribs – a cut of beef that’s always deliciously tender, but especially rewarding when it comes to the wagyu variety. A slow, steady cook unlocks all the tenderness, allowing the finished dish to truly melt in the mouth!

Beef short ribs
– 1kg of wagyu beef short ribs
– 500g of wagyu beef fat (or olive oil)
– Thyme, garlic
– Salt, pepper

Bone and roughly trim the ribs. Keep the trimmings for the juice. Season with salt and pepper and grill on a hot barbecue.

Place in a casserole dish and cover with the melted wagyu fat (or olive oil), thyme and a garlic clove. Place in the oven for 12 hours at 80°C. After cooking, drain the meat and place on a plate to cool.

Cut the cold ribs into portions, remove the excess fat and grill gently on the barbecue. Glaze with a little reduced meat juice and garnish with a mixture of chopped herbs.

Gently does it.

Grilled cucumbers:
– 1 small cucumber
– 4g of salt
– 50g of cucumber juice

Peel the cucumber and cut into thin slices. Put all the trimmings into a centrifuge and marinate the cucumber strips in this juice with the salt for 12 hours.

Remove the cucumber strips from the marinade, then grill with a blowtorch.
