Method

Remove Silver Fern Farms Beef Eye Fillet Steaks from the fridge and packaging. Season with pepper and 1 tsp olive oil and allow to bloom at room temperature for 10 mins. Salt the meat just prior to cooking.

Roughly chop half of the basil leaves and place in the olive oil with the garlic. Leave to infuse for 5 mins.

In the same frying pan turn the heat to low-medium and toss the tomatoes in the pan, until the skins are just beginning to split. Toss with a little basil oil.
