Ox Alba style

You'll need

  • 480 gm
  • finely diced ox or beef tenderloin fillet (see note)
  • 1 tbsp
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3
  • small Swiss brown mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • ¼
  • bunch of chives, thinly sliced
  • To serve:
  • grilled thinly sliced sourdough baguette and lemon cheeks
  •  
  • Lemon and sherry vinaigrette
  • 1
  • small clove of garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tsp
  • Dijon mustard
  • 25 ml
  • lemon juice
  • 25 ml
  • sherry vinegar
  • 200 ml
  • extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For lemon and sherry vinaigrette, combine garlic, mustard and a teaspoon of sea salt in a mortar and pound to a smooth paste using a pestle. Add lemon juice and vinegar, then stir in olive oil without emulsifying. Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper and set aside. Makes about 1 cup. It keeps for up to a week in the refrigerator.
  • 02
  • Place ox fillet in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and season to taste. Mix to combine then divide among six serving plates, arranging down the centre of plates.
  • 03
  • In a separate bowl combine mushrooms and chives, drizzle with a little vinaigrette and stand for 5 minutes to lightly pickle mushrooms. Arrange over beef, drizzle with a little extra vinaigrette and serve immediately with grilled sourdough and lemon cheeks.
Note Ox is an older, more flavoursome meat than that sold as beef. At GA&S, Rob Marchetti uses 150-day grain-fed ox fillet.
