Recipe for lightly grilled fillet of beef with Dijon crème, baked cherry tomatoes and fresh horseradish

Ingredients
Four steak fillets (approx. 100 gr. each)
Four slices of rye bread, buttered

Dijon crème
½ dl sour cream 38 %
1 tbsp good Dijon mustard
Salt, pepper & sugar

Oven-baked cherry tomatoes
200 gr. cherry tomatoes with stalk
3 tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper

Garnish
Fresh horseradish

Flavour the beef fillets with salt & pepper and pan-fry them one to two minutes on each side at medium heat. Leave the fillets to rest for the same period as they have been on the frying pan and slice them thinly. Mix the Dijon mustard and the sour cream and flavor the mixture with the spices.

Layer the cherry tomatoes in an oven-proof tray and pour the olive oil over them. Flavour with salt & pepper and turn the tomatoes till the olive oil is evenly distributed. Bake the tomatoes in the oven for approx. 1 ½ hours at 100 degrees Celsius. They should still be hot when they are served.

Arrange the sliced fillet of beef on the buttered bread. Garnish with two-three spoonfuls of the Dijon crème and the cherry tomatoes. Finish off by slicing the fresh horseradish over the fillet of beef.

Beer Ambassador Kasper Larsen from Nørrebro Bryghus recommends Bombay Pale Ale for the lightly grilled fillet of beef.
