800 g matured fillet steak
2 T olive oil
1 sprig fresh rosemary
Sea salt and freshly ground
black pepper, to taste
3 cloves garlic, chopped
200 g green olives, pitted
and roughly chopped
50 g raw almonds, roughly chopped
1 T extra virgin olive oil
100 g shiitake mushrooms
Wilted greens or baby potatoes
tossed in a home-made vinaigrette,
Slice the fillet into four even portions and leave to marinate in a bowl with the olive oil, rosemary and seasoning, for 15 to 20 minutes.
Heat a nonstick frying pan until hot. Sear the fillets on all sides for 8 minutes, or until the meat is tender and browned, then remove from the pan and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
In a bowl, mix the garlic, olive and almond with the olive oil, until combined. In another pan, heat a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil over a medium heat.
Slice the mushrooms and fry until golden and cooked.
Plate the fillet medallions and top with a good spoonful of the tapenade and the mushroom.
Season and serve with the wilted greens or baby potatoes tossed in a home-made vinaigrette.
