As you can see from the photo, my fillet was a fillet of beef with dark meat and a little fat around it, which makes it softer and tastier.

The thickness was of 2 fingers& hellip for those who love rare meat & egrave the best thickness!

It is preferable that the meat is a room temperature at the time of cooking then, take it out of the fridge a little earlier. Massage the surface of the meat with a little bit of d & rsquooliva oil causing it to penetrate just below the surface.

Choose one for cooking the fillet thick-bottomed pan so that the heat is distributed evenly and does not burn the meat. The difficulty of cooking such a high fillet in a pan egrave to bring it to the desired cooking without burning it on the surface.

Heat the pan or the plate in such a way that it is hot when you place the meat (by bringing your hand to the bottom of the pan you must feel the heat). Place the beef tenderloin on the pan, wait 30 seconds and then check that the meat is sealed underneath.

Turn the fillet to seal the other side. When turning the meat, do not pierce it otherwise the juices come out.

When the fillet is sealed on both sides you must proceed with cooking being careful not to burn the surface.

Therefore, we turn the fillet on 1 side and slightly lower the heat. We leave cook for about 1 minute. We turn to the other side and let it cook for another minute.

To have one rare like the one in the photo you have to cook the meat for 2 minutes per side. If you like it more cooked continue for a few more minutes.

Once cooked, turn off the flame, add del coarse salt on the surface e cover with a lid. Let the meat rest like this for about 1 minute. In this way, the juices, which tend to go towards the center during cooking, will be redistributed over the entire surface.

Serve your fillet of beef in a pan with a nice mixed salad or with a nice side dish of vegetables like beets And chicory. For those who do not know, in fact, the vegetables accompanying the meat attenuate the inflammatory capacities of the intestine.

Your fillet in a pan is ready and when you cut it you will know how good you have been!

Pork fillet in the world

And if you want to let yourself be carried away by the aromas and flavors that come to us from the Far East, remember that pork is the main ingredient of many Asian dishes. For example, the most famous is the Sweet and Sour Pork of the Chinese tradition, based on bites of meat in batter that are fried (or browned in a pan, if you want to maintain a healthy weight).

In addition to this dish, pork enriches numerous other traditional oriental dishes, such as fried rice, i noodles but also the ramen (the typical Japanese soup which is becoming more and more popular in the West too).

  1. Take the meat out of the refrigerator at least half an hour before cooking, otherwise it will be too cold and put in contact with the hot plate will lower the temperature. Dab the meat with kitchen paper, both to eliminate any bone residues, and to eliminate water, which prevents good cooking.
  2. Wash the rosemary, select the leaves and finely chop them with the crescent on a cutting board.
  3. Peel the garlic and slice it.
  4. Heat the cast iron plate over a high flame. While it is heating, add a little oil and dry it with kitchen paper.
  5. When the plate is very hot it will begin to emit a faint, barely perceptible smoke. Throw a handful of coarse salt, rosemary and garlic on the plate, then put the meat.
  6. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes, without touching it, so that it can cook well. Keep the flame rather lively. Neither water should appear on the bottom of the plate (temperature too low), nor smoke excessively (temperature too high). In both cases, cooking would be compromised. If you need to cook more than one fillet at the same time, get a plate of adequate size to heat over high heat, otherwise cook one at a time.
  7. After 2-3 minutes, lift a flap of the meat to assess the state of cooking. It must be well browned and have the classic brown streaks, a sign that cooking has taken place correctly. Continue cooking for 1 minute if it is not golden brown or if you like it well done (do not exceed, however, otherwise it would become very hard!).
  8. Turn the meat without using tools that can prick it, otherwise the internal juices will escape, to the detriment of softness.
  9. Cook the meat on the second side as it was done for the first side. Sprinkle with more chopped rosemary and a generous grind of black pepper.
  10. After cooking, put the meat on a plate or in a baking tray and cover with aluminum foil. Let it rest for a couple of minutes to allow the juices that are concentrated in the center of the fillet to redistribute themselves, helping to make the meat more uniformly soft.
  11. Put the fillet on the plate and season it with a drizzle of oil and, if you like, a few drops of balsamic vinegar. Garnish with the chopped rosemary and serve.
