  2. Bring the beef to room temperature and preheat the oven to 200°C.
  3. Rinse beef under cold water and pat dry. Heat oil in an ovenproof frypan over medium-high heat. Brown the beef for 2-3 minutes on all sides, then transfer to oven for 15 minutes for rare, or until cooked to your liking. Rest beef for 10 minutes. Slice and serve with chutney.



 Begin this recipe a day ahead.

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