Please note: this needs defrosting for 24 hours in the fridge before cooking. The sauce microwaves from frozen.

  • The cooking times on the packaging will ensure a medium or medium-rare finish, depending on how long you let the beef rest. If using a meat thermometer, the beef should reach an internal temperature of between 53°-55°C when you remove it from the oven. For medium-rare, leave to rest for 10mins where the internal temperature should be 60°C. And for medium, leave to rest for 20mins where the temperature should be closer to 65°C. If you’d like it well done (we don’t recommend it – do remember it will be more cooked at the ends anyway), you’ll want an internal temperature of 65°C from the oven and 75°C once rested.
  • British or Irish beef fillet – the finest cut there is – wrapped in higher-welfare ham that’s been air-dried for five months.

Try It With

  • Keep it simple with Roast Potatoes, steamed tenderstem broccoli or Trio of Greens.
  • For a very special dinner, it’s great with Dauphinoise Potatoes, and some seasonal green veg (green beans with kale and petit pois garnished with toasted almonds works well).
  • For something a little more informal, but still special, serve with a pea shoot, watercress and courgette ribbon salad, and some thin-cut fries.

How We Make It

  • The Prep Team make a roasted shallot duxelle with horseradish
  • They coat the beef fillet in the duxelle before wrapping it with four slices of the air-dried ham
  • The sauce, inspired by the classic French Béarnaise, is made from scratch
