Celeriac is my new favourite vegetable, especially when it’s made into mash. It’s only available in winter in Australia and is very versatile. If you can’t find celeriac, you could serve the beef with pumpkin or sweet potato mash.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 x 1kg whole beef eye fillet
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup rosemary leaves, chopped
1/2 cup thyme leaves, chopped
1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
1/2 cup basil leaves, chopped
small handful celery leaves

Celeriac and horseradish mash

Quantity Ingredient
1 celeriac root, peeled and chopped into chunks
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon yoghurt
1 tablespoon horseradish cream
salt and freshly ground pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220ºC.
  2. To cook the beef, rub it all over with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Mix all the herbs (except for the celery leaves), then sprinkle them on a chopping board. Roll the beef around in the mixture until evenly coated. Place on an oven tray and roast for 20–25 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer the beef to a warm plate. Cover with aluminium foil and leave to rest for 10 minutes before carving into slices.
  3. To make the mash, place the celeriac in a large saucepan, cover with water, add the salt and bring to the boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the celeriac is tender. Drain well, then tip into a large mixing bowl with the yoghurt, horseradish, salt and pepper and mash until smooth. Alternatively, whiz to a purée with a hand-blender. Keep warm until ready to serve.
  4. To serve, place a spoonful of celeriac mash on each plate and arrange slices of beef on top. Sprinkle with celery leaves and serve straight away.
