Firstly, we do recommend a meat thermometer for best results. Fillet steaks can come in different sizes and thickness, so knowing the internal temperature can be a surefire way of achieving the finish you desire.Take the steak out of the fridge 20-30 minutes before cooking so that it comes to room temperature.Pre heat the oven to 180deg C.Put a pan on a medium-high heat and sear the steak so it gets colour all over. This should take 3-4 minutes.Then put the steak in the oven and cook for 30-35 minutes per kilo for medium rare or 52 deg C internal temperature. Cook for 35-40 minutes per kilo for medium or 62deg C internal temperature.Rest the steak for 15-20 minutes and enjoy the luxurious, tenderness of a fillet steak.

To temper a piece of meat means to control the temperature of it at all stages of cooking.
Tempering meat is a very important part of the cooking process in order to get consistent results every time and should not be overlooked, particularly with beef.
There are a lot of considerations when cooking any type of meat so if you take the time to temper it, it will mean better, more consistent results. Using a meat thermometer is an important tool to ensure success.

The day before you need to cook your potatoes. Slice them all into even slices, 2-3mm thick, with a mandolin or a slicer attachment on a food processor.When your potatoes are sliced, add them to a bowl and cover with the duck fat, 10g of thyme and a good pinch of salt and pepper and pack it all into a parchment lined loaf tin, terrine mould or something of similar size.
