Chefs Tips
  • Make sure when you sear the beef you have a very hot pan and you use a thermometer to ensure it is cooked to medium rare. 
  • To speed up the process you can cut the piece of beef in half and cook at the same time.
  • If you don’t have a blender to mix the salad dressing, use a whisk.
