Whole fillet of beef*, an absolute classic and the perfect centrepiece of a celebratory feast. Perfect for a traditional Beef Wellington or a simple carpaccio. Equally decadent for a Sunday roast.
Chef Valentine Warner inspires:
"Such a treat one must take great care to cook this with delicacy and not cook it anything post medium….an unarguable tragedy!
There are choices here. Fleck with a fine dice of pickled walnuts or add in sautéed wild mushrooms such as chanterelles…..or do use both together.
Go nuts and once the beef is sliced and lying in the glistening sauce just go over it with a heavy sleeting of British Summer Truffle...or hell, why not, a white truffle.
While I seldom cook a whole one, I did once do this over charcoal and seasoned with seaweed salt. Using the vents is flipping essential as is a low heat and of course the use of the lid. A carefully made beef stock reduced with saké, a little red miso paste and mild honey is fantastic with the sliced meat. Hard-grilled gem lettuce and smashed and butter roasted new potatoes was a great accompaniment.
Sounds odd but one of the great Italian rice dishes is a red wine risotto. Rare to eat it accompanied with anything and it once came with chargrilled, rare, thinly sliced fillet. It was memorably delicious.
Roast a whole one, slice and serve with a mountain of French fries, béarnaise sauce and a salad with long pieces of snipped fresh chives."
* All Swaledale beef is heritage breed and raised on independent farms and smallholdings dotted around the wildly beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Slow grown and free to roam on the swath of green hills and valleys; the result is naturally marbled, exceptional tasting beef with an umami taste - rich, dense and flavourful. Our beef fillet is aged on the carcass to intensify its natural grass-fed character.
