This recipe is from episode 23 of Good Chef Bad Chef series 3.
Yes, it’s a bit expensive, but a really top-quality piece of beef filet makes a great dinner party meal. It’s dead-easy to prepare and cook and it looks really impressive too. I like to serve beef filet rare, with creamed spinach, thyme scented mushrooms and rosemary roasted potatoes. You might like to make a quick gravy in the roasting pan, and jazz it up with a red wine reduction.
