Warm beef, roasted tomatoes and sweet capsicums with horseradish cream

all details

Look for packets of mini capsicums, as they are so sweet and you can roast them whole. The horseradish-cream recipe is based on one by Melbourne chef Andrew McConnell. It's delicious.

Ingredients

30ml olive oil, plus a little extra for drizzling
Freshly ground black pepper
500g piece beef eye fillet, trimmed
175g vine-ripened mini capsicums
1 red onion, cut into wedges
250g truss tomatoes
2 handfuls tatsoi lettuce (or other gourmet mixed leaves)
1 tbsp capers, rinsed
Celery leaves, crisp-fried to garnish (optional)
 

Horseradish cream
3 tbsp good-quality mayonnaise
3 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp horseradish (from a jar)
1 tbsp lemon juice
Sea salt and freshly ground white pepper to season

 

Method

Preheat oven to 200C.

Rub oil and pepper all over beef fillet and set aside. In a heavy-based frying pan over high heat, add beef and seal on all sides for four to five minutes. Remove and place on a roasting tray.

Place capsicums and onion wedges in the pan with a little extra oil and cook for five minutes until slightly softened. Place in the roasting tray, add tomatoes on the vine and drizzle with a little extra oil. Cook vegetables in the oven with beef for eight minutes for medium rare. Remove beef and rest, leaving vegetables in the oven for a further 10 minutes, until just softened.

Scatter tatsoi over a serving platter and place roasted vegetables on top. Slice beef and arrange over the vegetables. Scatter capers and celery leaves over the top.

Make the horseradish cream by combining all the ingredients. Adjust seasoning. Drizzle some over the salad. Serve extra in a jug.

    Never mind finding the baby capsciums, I just used one large red one and chopped it up in large chunks. I omitted the onion, using some spring onion instead, and used a bag of mixed salad greens and then because I felt like it, some chopped pumpkin that I roasted with the other ingredients adding them to the pan with the capscium, I found myself adding double the horse radish stated, maybe I was too generous with the first 2 ingredients, and Oh My God - Delicious - you can't go wrong with beef fillet!
