Fillet Steak Recipe with Pecorino & Rocket | Marco Pierre White

A very simple Fillet Steak Recipe with Pecorino and Rocket by Marco Pierre White.

I dig this recipe, Pecorino and rocket on a fillet steak is a really cool way to serve it. Especially if there is someone you want to impress without getting too technical.

Marco is using Sirloin Steak in the recipe but you can easily do this with any cut, in this instance we are suggesting fillet..

If you are going to use Sirloin always look for a coating of fat around the eye of the steak. If it does not have any fat it is going to taste like cardboard.

Marco uses stock cubes to season the steak, this he says improves the caramelisation and flavour of the meat.

You can always substitute the Pecorino for other hard cheeses like Parmesan.
