  1. Fill and preheat your water bath cooker to 83 C
  2. Prepare the meat by removing all the fat
  3. Remove the layer of meat around the centre of the rib eye as this will be used for the braised beef
  4. Roll the remainder of the meat tightly with cling film then portion into 6 steaks. Refrigerate for use later
  5. Put the braising beef into a  vacuum sealer bag along with the sliced garlic and thyme. Use a vacuum food sealer to seal the bag
  6. Plunge the bag into the water bath and cook for 4 hours
  7. Once ready, remove the meat from the bag and scrape away all of the garlic and thyme. Cut the beef lengthways in two before tightly rolling in cling film. Refrigerate for later use
  8. Take the steak portions from the fridge and seal on both sides in a hot pan with a little oil. Add seasoning
  9. Take the braised beef from the fridge then slice in to pieces of approximately 3cm. Add along with the butter to the steak portions. Cook the steaks to your preference then remove from the pan and leave in a warm place to rest
  10. Whilst the steaks rest move on to the mushroom puree. Put all of the ingredients into an oven-proof pan, cover with tin foil then cook in the middle of a preheated oven (150 C/Gas mark 2) for 60 minutes. Liquidise the mixture before passing through a fine sieve. Reheat with a little milk when ready to serve
  11. Cook the potatoes in the middle of a preheated oven (200 C/Gas mark 6) until soft (approximately 60 minutes)
  12. Whilst the potatoes cook grill the bacon then dice
  13. Remove the flesh from the potatoes then stuff with the grilled bacon and chopped spring onions. Place in 5cm (diameter) x 2cm (thickness) rings and cool. Pan fry the potatoes until golden with a little oil and butter when ready to serve
  14. Make the beef tea by mixing together all of the ingredients and bringing to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer for 90 minutes. Pass through a muslin cloth when ready
  15. Finally, blanch baby carrots to remove the skins then add to 100g butter and 100ml of water then warm. Chop some little gem lettuce
  16. Assemble the dish by firstly spooning some mushroom puree onto six plates. Next, add the braised beef followed by the steak portions. Arrange the potatoes then lastly add the carrots and lettuce. Serve immediately
