  • 80 g (5.5 tbsp) butter

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
Prep time:
20 minutes
Cooking time:
45 minutes

Recipe Instructions

Step 1
Remove the meat and butter from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking. Turn on the oven and place a rack at the middle height.

Step 2
Pour the olive oil over the steak and gently rub both sides with the Flower of Merlot sea salt to form a crust around it. Place the meat in a baking dish and cook in the oven for 35 minutes, turning halfway through.

Step 3
In the meantime, peel and chop the shallot. Remove the tarragon leaves from their stems and mince. In a bowl, stir the tarragon and shallot together with the softened butter. Form into a sausage shape, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Step 4
When the meat is cooked, remove from oven. To serve, cut the meat and serve with tarragon butter rounds. Optionally, accompany with oven-roasted potatoes.
