  • Meat

    Remove the meat from the fridge approx. 1 hr prior to browning. Pre-heat the oven to 80°C. Warm the platter and plates. Season the meat, add the thyme, tie with a cooking string. Heat the clarified butter in a wide-bottomed frying pan. Brown the meat all over for approx. 5 mins. Remove and place on the pre-warmed platter. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of one of the fillets. Cook at a low temperature in the centre of a preheated oven for approx. 1 1/2 hrs. The core temperature should be around 65°C. The meat can then be kept warm at 60°C for up to 1 hr.
  • Gnocchi

    Bring the milk and water to the boil, add the nutmeg, salt to season. Stir in the sweetcorn, simmer for approx. 4 mins. over a very low heat, stirring occasionally, to form a thick paste. Allow the sweetcorn to cool a little, mix in the Sbrinz cheese and the flour. Fill the mixture into a disposable pastry bag. Heat a little clarified butter in a non-stick frying pan. Cut off the end of the pastry bag and insert small portions of the gnocchi mixture directly into the pan, then fry for approx. 5 mins. Remove, keep warm on a plate.
  • Sauce

    Beat the cream with the basil and salt until fluffy.
  • Servieren:

    Fleisch aus dem Ofen nehmen, tranchieren, mit den Gnocchi und dem Basilikumrahm anrichten.
