One Tray Fillet of Beef, Potatoes & Salsa Verde

Method

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Rub the beef all over with 1 tablespoon of oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Heat a flameproof roasting dish over a medium-high heat and sear the meat all over until a crust forms, about 4–5 minutes.

In the same roasting dish add the potatoes and coat with another tablespoon of oil and a pinch of salt. Place around beef and roast in the oven for 20 minutes for medium-rare or a little longer depending on how you like your meat cooked.

For the salsa verde, blitz the ingredients in a food processor until a rough paste forms. Correct the seasoning by adding a pinch of salt and pepper.

Once cooked remove meat from the tray and set aside to rest for 8–10 minutes to rest. Carve into 1cm-thick pieces. Arrange back on top of potatoes and serve with salsa verde and extra herbs.
