  • Avocado oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Store – bought dukkah, or homemade dukkah

How to make the butter:

Preheat the oven to 200’C.

Season the marrow bones and drizzle with oil. Roast them in the oven for 20 minutes. Put the soft marrow into a small pot and add the butter.

Simmer over medium heat until the marrow has rendered down. Stir in all the herbs. Season to taste.

How to make the fillet:

Fillet cooks best on a braai with a domed lid (Weber).

Rub the fillet with avocado oil and season with salt and pepper. Braai the fillet over a hot fire for 2-21/2 minutes (Fillet normally has three sides)

Cook for 40 minutes more
on cooler coals (lid closed of Weber) or to your liking.

Let the fillet rest for 10 minutes, paint with warm bone marrow butter.

Sprinkle the dukkah on a wooden board. Roll the fillet in the mixture. Thinly slice the fillet and serve with extra bone marrow butter and dukkah for dunking.
