Preheat oven to 220C, drain beef, place on a wire rack over a baking paper-lined oven tray, season to taste. Roast until cooked rare (20-25 minutes), cover with foil and rest (10-12 minutes), thinly slice and set aside.

Cool slightly, process in a food processor until a fine paste forms (1 minute), then with motor running, gradually add remaining oil. Season to taste and set aside.
