about

Impress your guests with this mouth-watering main course, using BAKERS Salticrax® crackers.  An ideal entrée for an elegant luncheon or dinner party.

Serves 8 – 12

ingredients

50 g BAKERS Salticrax® Black Pepper flavoured crackers

250 ml basil leaves

1 – 3 large garlic cloves

60 g freshly grated parmesan cheese

90 ml soft butter

salt and milled black pepper

600 g whole fillet of beef

olive oil

 

instructions

  1. To make the pesto filling, place the BAKERS Salticrax® crackers in a processor together with the basil, garlic, cheese and butter. Add salt and pepper to taste and pulse until fine and blended.
  2. Push a kitchen steel or a long serrated knife lengthwise through the centre of the fillet to make a cavity. With your fingers, make the cavity large enough to hold the filling. Stuff the filling into the cavity and secure the open ends with skewers.
  3. Rub the fillet all over with a little olive oil and season to taste. Heat a griddle pan and cook the fillet to your liking.
  4. Remove from pan and allow to rest a few minutes. Slice into 8 – 12 slices and serve warm or at room temperature.
