Ingredients

  • 3 tsp freshly grated horseradish (or ready-grated English Provender Hot Horseradish, from Waitrose)
  • 3 tsp English mustard
  • 3 tbsp horseradish cream
  • 1 garlic bulb, crushed
  • 75g fresh breadcrumbs
  • 4 thyme sprigs, leaves picked
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 700g beef fillet
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing
  • 1 head of garlic, broken into cloves (unpeeled)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Mix the grated horseradish in a bowl with the mustard, horseradish cream, crushed garlic, breadcrumbs, thyme and melted butter. Season. Rub the beef fillet all over with the olive oil, then press the crust onto the top and sides, leaving the ends exposed.
  2. Put the fillet in a lightly oiled, shallow roasting tray along with the garlic cloves. Roast in the oven for 35 minutes for medium-rare (or longer if you’d prefer). Remove and set the beef aside to rest for 10 minutes, loosely covered with foil. Serve sliced with the chipped potatoes and cauliflower gratin.
