Cooking Instructions:
 

Traditional Roasting

Bring the meat to room temperature

Remove the defrosted fillet from the packaging and pat dry with kitchen paper. Allow the meat to come to room temperature well in advance or for at least 30 minutes before cooking.

Preheat oven to 250°C / Fan 230°C / Gas 9. Choose a large, heavy based roasting tray, ideally with shallow sides and handles for easy movement, place in the oven to pre heat.

Rub a little oil onto the joint then season with sea salt & black pepper. Carefully place the fillet onto the pre heated tray to sear and then cook in the preheated for:

Medium: 15 -17 minutes (55 - 60°C Final Rested Temperature)
Well Done: 18 - 20 minutes (64 - 70°C Final Rested Temperature)

We would recommend this joint is cooked to medium 55 - 60°C bearing in mind that the residual heat in the joint can cook it on as much as 10°C, so the roast is timed to be removed early and allowed to finish cooking as it rests. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the meat for perfect results.

Place the meat on a board or platter, cover loosely with foil and leave in a warm place for up to 20 minutes.

Once rested, carve the meat across the grain in even slices.
