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

  • British or Irish beef fillet – the finest cut there is – wrapped in higher-welfare ham that’s been air-dried for five months
  • Simply let the fillet rest once cooked for 10mins for medium rare and 20mins for medium
  • Hand-prepared by the chefs at the COOK Kitchen
  • Also available as part of our Christmas Dinner bundles

Try It With

  • Keep it simple with Roast Potatoes, steamed tenderstem broccoli and some roasted vine cherry tomatoes
  • 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

Wine Pairing

  • Cabernet, Merlot or Shiraz. These wines are smooth, full flavoured and have the body and structure to match the Beef Fillet as well as the air-dried ham and rich Bearnaise Sauce.

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
