Rib eye bone in with green peppercorn cream sauce and pickled radish, red onion, and fennel salad.

Last Saturday before I left for Brisbane I noticed that Coles had these large rib eye bone in steaks for sale. I really wanted to buy one just in case there were none available when I arrived back in Canberra. I worry though about power outages and the last thing I wanted was putrefying meat in a hot freezer when I returned.
