Red Wine Marinated Beef Fillet

While driving along the R103, it came as a surprise - but I suppose it shouldn’t have - to see so many people out with their portable braais as snow turned the Midlands into a winter paradise. Does this only happen in South Africa? Keep my red-wine-marinated-steak recipe for next year - you won’t be sorry. Or you may prefer to try it on a few friends this weekend.

Serves : 4

Ingredients :

  • 4 x 150gr Beef Fillet
  • 1 (165gr) Onion, skin off, cut Chinese style
  • 4 cloves (20gr) Garlic, grated
  • 20 Whole Black Peppercorns
  • 8 Fresh Bay Leaves

Method :

  1. Place all the ingredients into a container and cover, leaving in the fridge overnight, turning the beef fillet around once.
  2. Take the beef out the marinating liquid and cook either by braaiing or searing in a pan.

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