Compliments to the chef! Congratulations and well done Zelda van Staden for submitting AUGUST’s winning recipe, Beef Fillet wrapped in Bacon.
|1 Packet||Streaky Bacon|
|Medium Beef fillet|
|5ml||Fresh or dry rosemary finely chopped|
|1||Mix the rosemary with the salt & pepper and rub into the fillet.|
|2||Rub a piece of greaseproof paper with the olive oil.|
|3||Place the bacon on the paper in such a way that it will cover the surface of the fillet when rolled.|
|4||Place the fillet on top of the bacon.|
|5||Use the greaseproof paper to help you roll the bacon around the filled.|
|6||Tie with string into a neat shape.|
|7||Place in oven tray and bake for two hours at 140C.|
|8||Remove from oven and let the roll rest for 15 minutes.|
|9||Cut into slices and serve with gravy.|
Make your gravy on the stove top using the pan juices. Stir in 10 ml butter and 150ml of red wine and bring to a boil on medium heat. Reduce for approximately 10 minutes. Serve hot.
