Tamarind Marinated Beef Fillet (serves four)


For the Tamarind Paste

Fresh Tamarind pods
Boiling water from the kettle

For the marinade

4 Tbsp tamarind paste
3 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Honey
Juice of two limes

For the beef

Approx. 500g of Beef fillet (if possible ensure you get the fat end – Chateaux Briande)


  1. To create the tamarind paste, crack open the seed pods and place the sticky flesh into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Pour enough boiling water over to just cover and leave to cool for around 30 minutes.
  3. Mash together the pulp and water, then pour through a colander over another mixing bowl to remove the stones.
  4. Finally pour through a fine sieve to remove further larger pieces and then simmer the pulp over a light heat until it thickens to a sticky paste.
  5. Place the paste into a sterilised jam jar and take what you need for this dish and store the rest in the fridge.
  6. To create the marinade, mix together the paste, soy sauce, honey and lime juice until fully combined.
  7. In a shallow dish pour the marinade over the cut of meat, turn to coat evenly.
  8. Leave to marinate at room temperature for an hour, and then use a pastry brush to rebaste the meat before transferring to a hot pan.
  9. Use tongs to turn and seal the beef all over before transferring to a pre heated oven at 220c for 20 minutes.
  10. Once cooked remove from the oven and leave for a further 20 minutes to rest before slicing into thin strips and serving with salad and the homemade slaw.
