    LilKiwiChicken's Note:

    This works best with filet steak, however I have also made it with thick cut sirloin & it was yummy. It's nice as a special treat or dinner. I think this is an Annabel Langbein (NZ Chef) recipe but with a definite French influence.

    1. 1
      Heat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius.
    2. 2
      Pulse the bread in a food processor until the crumbs are coarse (you don't want them really fine).
    3. 3
      Put the melted butter into a small bowl, and add the garlic, thyme and fresh breadcrumbs. Stir until well combined.
    4. 4
      Heat a frypan onto high heat & add the olive oil. The pan should be smoking.
    5. 5
      While the pan is heating, trim any excess fat and silverskin from the steaks, and grind black pepper to taste over the steaks.
    6. 6
      Using tongs (and watch for spatters) put the steaks into the pan and quickly sear on all sides.
    7. 7
      Remove to an oven tray and spread with Dijon Mustard to taste.
    8. 8
      Pile the crumb mixture on top in an even layer, and put into the oven until cooked to your liking (I like this rare, so about 15 minutes or so at most for me is fine). Ensure that the crumb doesn't burn (but it should be golden).
    9. 9
      Rest for 5-10 minutes in a warm place.
    10. 10
      Serve with fresh greens & potatoes.

      Yum, Yum. This was wonderful, I have a blog and I even had my son ask me tonight is this yours or a review. It was a definite 5 stars "mum" this is great. All of us thought this was fab. I served it over mash, topped with garlic spinach and mushrooms topped with the steak. Forget about what I served it with the topping was awesome, it had so much flavour and complimented the juicy steaks well. I know just about any steak sauce/recipe you can make with most cuts, I have to agree with you fillet is the best and it is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing

      Exceptionally great recipe. My guests thought they had come to a top notch restaurant ~ this was that fabulous. Truly a whiz to put together, just be sure to watch the steaks carefully, and this won't let you down. I followed this exactly, and the taste of the meat/crumb garlic thyme mixture/ Dijon Mustard was spectacular. Thanks, littlekiwichook. Made for *ZWT3 07'*.
