South Africans love a good cut of steak and we often pop it onto the braai, however, it’s not always the best way to cook fillet.

This garlic and peppercorn fillet recipe is prepared very similar to what’s done in good restaurants and now you can do it at home. The simple ingredients and method gives you a mouthwatering steak experience.
Don’t get rid of the butter and burned bits in the heavy cast-iron pan you’re using. Add another tablespoon of butter with a tablespoon of flour and mix and stir until flour smell goes away. Slowly add half a cup of beef stock and scrape everything free. Then add some more stock until the sauce is glossy and thick. This tasty steak is best served alongside some roasted vegetables and crispy potatoes which can also be cooked with some more garlic.
