 The meat for the dish should be aged on the bone for 20 days.

 Fillet is more tender, but for flavour, it is best to use rump.

 Always rest beef after cooking. This gives the meat juices a chance to redistribute, giving a more moist and tender result

 The butter keeps for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator and freezes well.

 Remember to turn the meat once only during cooking.
