Fillet of Beef

Some time ago I bought a vacuum packed beef fillet and froze it.

I am currently house-sitting and found this curious device in the cupboard:


I was going to cut the fillet into steaks, or maybe make beef wellington, but instead I decided just to cook it whole in this cooker.  I am glad I did.

I thawed the beef overnight in the ‘fridge, and took it out to let it come to room temperature before cooking.

I rubbed it with oil, garlic, salt and pepper and dropped it into the preheated cooker.

Ten minutes a side.

Then sliced into steaks, served with coleslaw and beetroot.

Bloody delicious.

Hot Easter dinner and lots left over for sandwiches, with chutney and salad.

This grill looks like a very useful utensil.


About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
