Ingredients

  • 800 g beef tenderloin, cut in to 4 steaks
  • Black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Vegeta Beef stock powder
  • 100 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 50 ml dessert wine or port wine
  • 50 ml water
  • Sauce:
  • 1 orange, zest and juice required
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 1 tbsp capers, chopped
  • 200 g sheep cheese, shaved

Preparation

  1. 1.
    Season each steak with black pepper and Vegeta Beef stock.
  2. 2.
    Heat olive oil in a pan and braise the steaks on both sides.
  3. 3.
    Add garlic, a sprig of rosemary torn into pieces and bay leaf. Deglaze the juices in the pan with dessert wine or port wine and a little water (up to 50 ml).
  4. 4.
    Continue cooking the steak until the liquid has evaporated. Transfer the steaks to a plate to rest and discard the remainder left in the pan.
  5. 5.
    Sauce: Combine the orange zest and juice, chopped parsley and capers.

Serving

Transfer the steaks to the serving plates. Arrange cooked vegetables on the plate, steak, sheep cheese and a little sauce over the top.

Tip

Allow 5 minutes of resting time before serving the steaks. Resting meat stabilizes the juices and makes the meat more tender, after it has had a chance to cool down and rest.
