When I am having such a lovely cut of meat, delicately and perfectly cooked, I like to do something other than drown it in gravy. Sometimes a little salsa - but today, a little crumb. Be a little careful not to use too much cheese, or an overwhelmingly powerful cheese - such a beautiful roast deserves to shine.
What you will need
- 20cm long piece of eye fillet, tied to hold it's shape
- Nob of butter
- Fresh herbs - parsley, spring onion, basil, thyme - your choice!
- A little ages , crumbly cheddar
Sprinkle the meat with salt. Heat a pan to really hot and add a nob of butter, brown all sides. Place in a baking dish in a 200 degree oven for 15 minutes. Rest for 10 minutes. Top with crumbled aged cheddar, parsley and spring onion. Serve with vegetables or salad.
