Method

Take a nice fillet of beef or undercut, remove the skin and fat, tie it in a nice shape and insert here and there little bits of bacon fat (as explained in previous dish), add salt and pepper and bake it, basting it often. Remove the string before serving and the fat from the gravy.

This can be served with a watercress salad and potatoes, or with a white wine sauce, to which you add a few chopped truffles.
