Dry-Aged Beef Fillet with Rosemary mashed Potatoes
Mashed Potatoes is popular for young and old and can be easily adapted. Whether it is made completely classic or how we give it a Mediterranean flavor with rosemary is a matter of taste and can be varied according to the season.
Rosemary goes well with the good and mature beef fillet, of course, Rosemary is an excellent recipe for 4 people. The puree should be slightly thinner and milkier in consistency, because we do not use a vegetable garnish, but concentrate the aroma on the wonderfully tender meat and the puree with its elegant and slightly salty rosemary note.
Tip: If you like, you can also prepare the puree from sweet potatoes. It makes the dish slightly sweeter, but also fits well with Mediterranean herbs from the garden, best with meat. In addition, the sweet potato gives the plate a nice coloured contrast.
