Assembly and finishing

Procedure for Jus de Boeuf

In a large saucepan, brown the meat offcuts in oil until completely and evenly browned. Drain off the fat and repeat with butter and chopped onion. Strain.

Put the pot back on the stove and add cold water. Bring to the boil, skimming off any scum when necessary. Reduce the liquid to half over very low heat.

Strain the stock into another pot, pressing down on the meat offcuts to extract all the juices. Return to the heat and reduce by half again until you have an almost creamy density. Filter and store the jus.

Procedure for cooking the fillet

Clean the fillet  and tie with kitchen twine Sprinkle with salt then brown in a pan with oil and a knob of butter. Once browned, remove from the pan and let rest on a wire rack. In the same frying pan, add in some chopped shallot. Let it brown before adding some chopped green pepper drained from the brine and allow to develop flavour.

Deglaze with brandy. Add a few drops of the green pepper liquid, some cooking cream and the jus de boeuf.

Add the fillet and finish cooking by thickening the sauce. Cut the fillet into medallions and season with plenty of pepper sauce.
