    About this recipe: Chateaubriand is a steak to serve on special occasions, such as an anniversary or engagement, or a job promotion! It is an incredibly tender cut of beef from the centre of the fillet. Absolutely heavenly served with thick cut chips and truffle butter or Bernaise sauce.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 2 

    • 2 centre cut beef tenderloin steaks, 4cm (1.5 in) thick
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • freshly ground black pepper to taste

    1. Rub the beef with the olive oil and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Let the beef rest at room temperature for 1 hour.
    2. Heat a large, heavy frying pan over medium-high heat. Quickly sear the meat about 5 seconds on each side, then remove from frying pan. Melt and brown the butter in the frying pan. Return the meat to the frying pan, and fry 4 to 5 minutes on each side. The outside of the meat should be browned and crisp. Remove from the frying pan and let stand for about 5 minutes for the juices to settle.
