Spiced fillet of beef
- 4 tbsp Szechuan peppercorns (or mixed peppercorns), finely ground
- 4 tsp caster sugar
- 4 tbsp wholegrain mustard
- 900g beef fillet
- 3 tbsp Asda Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Roast parsnips, to serve
- Asda Extra Special Dauphinoise Potatoes, to serve
Pre-heat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7.
Mix the peppercorns and caster sugar together and sprinkle this mixture over a chopping board.
Spread the mustard all over the beef and the roll the fillet in the pepper and sugar, coating it thoroughly.
Heat a large non-stick, ovenproof frying pan until very hot. Add the fillet of beef and sear for about 3 minutes, turning regularly until the meat is golden brown all over.
Place the pan in the oven for 20-25 minutes, then remove the beef from the oven and allow to rest.
