In our family home olives are always readily available. In my opinion beef fillet, cherry tomatoes and olives poached in olive oil with fresh rocket, pecorino shavings and a crispy caper salad is a lunch-time suggestion fit for any mother.

Poached Beef Fillet

Serves:: 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 x 100gr Beef fillet
  • 500ml Olive Oil
  • 500ml Sunflower Oil
  • 16 (175gr) Cherry Tomatoes
  • 12 (68gr) Campfire Olives

Method:

  1. Place all the ingredients into a saucepan.
  2. Onto the heat, time 10minutes to cook for medium-to-rare (we use gas to cook, time will change when cooking on a electric stove plate).
  3. Remove from the oil and allow to slightly cool.
  4. When serving slice the beef, sprinkle Maldon Salt over and serve with crispy fresh Lettuce, deep - fried Capers, Pecorino Cheese shavings and Lemon Wedges.

Please post your comments and any food-related questions below. I look forward to hearing from you.
