Beef Medallions with Mushroom Sauce
Remove Silver Fern Farms Beef Eye Fillet Steaks from fridge and packaging and rub with 1 Tbsp of the oil. Rub the za’atar or oregano over the meat, covering all sides. Allow to bloom at room temperature for 10 mins.
Meanwhile, soak porcini mushrooms for 10 mins in hot water. Heat a large fry-pan over medium heat.

Add all the mushrooms, reduce heat to low heat and cook for 15 mins, stirring occasionally.
Stir in paprika and cinnamon and season with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, heat a skillet, fry-pan or BBQ plate over a med-high heat. Grill the beef for 3-4 mins one side. Turn and grill for a further 3-4 mins for med-rare.
Remove beef from the pan and transfer to a dish, cover loosely with foil and allow to rest for 5 mins.
For a shared dish, spread the mushroom sauce on a warm plate. Slice beef across the grain and arrange on mushroom sauce.
