In a pot add 2 garlic cloves, butter and mushrooms.
Add a dash of water, salt and pepper, thyme and cook over a medium heat for 5 – 10 min.
Sweat off some shallots, butter, bacon, 2 garlic, peas and ½ cup water and simmer for a few minutes until cooked.
Season beef in a generous amount of salt and pepper.
Cover with thyme. Using string, tie up the meat so the meat won’t fall a part whilst cooking.
Sear the meat on a high heat in a griddle pan until the meat is brown.
Put the meat in the oven on the pan for 12 – 15 min 190°C.
Roesti: Grate potatoes and add salt in a bowl.
Squeeze the juice from the potatoes using your hands.
Pack potato into a small fry pan and cook on a medium heat for 1 – 2 min.
Flip over potatoes and cook for another 4 – 5 min.
