Fillet of Beef with Crusted Almonds

Serves: 4


1 pound (500 g) fillet of beef
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pinch of pepper
Pinch of paprika pepper
Pinch of ground ginger
1 1/2 ounces (45 g) butter or margarine
2 egg yolks
2 ounces (60 g) flaked almonds


1. Preheat the oven to hot (450 degrees F/230 degrees C). Mix the oil with the salt, pepper, paprika and ginger and coat the meat on all sides, then put it in the center of the oven and roast for 30 to 40 minutes.
2. Beat the butter with the egg yolks, gradually working them in, and finally mix the almonds into the foamy mass. Coat the top of the meat with the almond mixture and cook for a further 10 minutes so that a crust is formed. Serve immediately.

Serve with young carrots and green beans tossed in butter.
