Beef Fillet with Smoking Marrowbone, Beet & Gherkin Salad

Serves 2

This is an easy, seasonal dish which allows clean flavours and even a bit of chef-y theatre. The marrow, whilst adding an instant umami flavour, also has great health benefits. Bone marrow is a source of protein and high in monounsaturated fats. These fats are known to decrease LDL cholesterol levels, resulting in a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. If you aren’t cooking on a BBQ then you can melt the marrow with a kitchen torch.


2 x beef fillet steaks or steak of your choice
1 x marrowbone (split- ask your butcher to do this) BBQ
2 x beetroot – I’ve used golden and candy beet peeled and 1cm diced
1 x medium potato peeled and 1cm diced
1/2 small red onion finely diced
