Unforgettable fillet with creamy blue cheese sauce. THIS is the recipe you have to have when you want to WOW. Plus prep and cook time are 17 minutes, total!


  • 450g fillet
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 50g blue cheese
  • ½ cup crème fraiche (sour cream)
  • ½ cup cream
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C
  2. In a medium saucepan, add a tablespoon butter and one tablespoon of oil. Turn the heat onto high.
  3. Brown the fillet quickly and by this I mean you really want to just seal and brown so literally just 30 seconds or less on each side.
  4. Place the meat in the oven for 10-12 minutes…or slightly longer if you like your meat well done.
  5. In the meantime, cook the onion on medium heat until soft and lightly browned.
  6. When the meat is ready, transfer it to the pan with the onion and simply add the cream, crème fraiche, blue cheese, salt and pepper. Using a fork, gently mix everything together, the cheese will start to melt and become a mouth-watering sauce.


I used my Le Creuset square skillet griddle pan to fry the meat and to cook in the oven (as it is cast iron). I cooked the onions in a separate pan and then transferred the onion to the griddle pan – this way the flavours of the meat contributed to the sauce.[br][br]I would therefore recommend, if you can, to fry the meat in a pan that can also go in the oven to create the same full flavours. If you don’t have a cast iron pan, just remember, once the meat has cooked, to pour all the juices out of the roasting dish and into the pan with the onions.
