Demonstrated at the 2011 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.

Ingredients

  • 1 fillet of beef. approx 1.5 kg

  • Marinade

  • 6 cardamom pods, husks removed

  • 5 cloves

    Add remaining ingredients and pound to chunky consistency.

  • 5.

    Rub a little over beef and seal on hot griddle or pan.

    Transfer to oven tray and with remaining spice mix coat the beef.

  • 7.

    Bake in a hot oven until just cooked medium–rare, approximately 25–30 minutes.

  • 8.

    Rest the fillet for 5 minutes, slice and serve.
