2 garlic cloves
1 French shallot
1 bunch basil
4 biscotte toasts
Salt and pepper
1kg piece of roasting beef
600g tomatoes, a mixture of varieties
Pre-heat the oven to 200 C.
Peel the garlic and shallot, pick the leaves from the basil. Process them all roughly with the biscottes.
Season with salt and pepper.
Rub the beef with the butter and brown on all sides in a flameproof baking dish over high heat.
Arrange the tomatoes around the beef and scatter with the Provençal crumb mixture.
Cook in the oven for 15 minutes, then leave to rest for 10 minutes in a warm place by the oven before serving.
Note: If you don’t have a flameproof baking dish that can be used on the stove top, skip the browning step.
