Carpetbag steak

A carpetbag steak is traditionally a working-class dish from Mumbles. A historic fishing village in Swansea, UK.

Over the years it has become more of a luxury dish, popular especially in Australia and New Zealand.


  • A tomahawk steak
  • Oysters

How to

  1. Make pockets in the steak by making small cuts and then open these up with your fingers.
  2. Stuff the pockets with oysters and put the steak on the grill over indirect heat and let the steak come up to a temperature of 52 degrees Celsius or 125 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Now to make things fun, I’m brushing some Dollie Sauce Original onto the steak and sear it off. This is optional of course. you could skip this steak and just sear your steak without any sauce.
  4. Last thing to do is take your steak and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing into it.
