Tip: Best is to prepare the side dishes and sauce before you start cooking the steak.

Preparing the fillet

250g per person beef- or springbok fillet (for meat with more flavour, try a Rib-eye steak)

20 ml lemon juice

125 ml coconut oil / olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper

½ cup brandy

Marinate steak in lemon juice, olive oil and black pepper.

Leave to rest for one hour (or preferably overnight).

Cooking method for fillet

Heat black pot until hot (200°C). Do not add olive oil in pot.

Cook the steaks to your taste.

Before removing the steak from the heat, flambé steak in brandy

Serve steak immediately.

½ red onion, finely chopped

15ml coconut oil / olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper

100ml brandy
