BEEF FILLET WITH BACON JAM AND FRIED EGGS A RECIPE FOR THE TOP-HEAT GRILL

BEEF FILLET WITH BACON JAM AND FRIED EGGS

The second recipe, which I can present to you together with Otto Wilde from the new book “Oberhitze”, is dedicated to what is supposed to be the German’s favorite grilled food: beef fillet. Of course there are many other cuts that are actually a little better for grilling with top heat – but I find the combination with light bacon and crispy eggs quite exciting. So rustic and exciting.

In addition to the recipe, I would add that the steaks should of course come slowly to room temperature for at least two hours beforehand. During this time I would add lots of salt to them and dry them with a kitchen towel before grilling. If you have a sous vide device in your home, you can heat the steaks in it to 54 degrees beforehand – then it works a little better or safer with the perfect core temperature.
