Season the fillet of beef with cracked black pepper and salt crystals and sear fully in a very hot pan with grape seed oil and a little butter and cook in an oven at 170C until very rare 37C in the center. Pan sear the shitake Mushrooms with butter oil and tarragon and add into a bowl with the grated Stilton, the sliced leek, the egg and the cream, salt and pepper. Gently mix and spoon onto the top of the steak and place the steak back into the oven at 190c until the steak reaches medium rare 52C and serve on a fondant potato which is simply a potato braised in butter and beef stock. (Oxo if you have it!) Serve with a nice bottle of chilled cask conditioned ale lovely jubbley!
