Preparation Time 15 minutes
Cooking Time 45 minutes
Ingredients (serves 10)
14 slices (about 120g) prosciutto
1 x 150g ctn Wattle Valley Baby Spinach with Cashew & Parmesan Chunky Dip
1.5kg-piece beef fillet
Fresh basil leaves, to serve
1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Place 7 prosciutto slices in a row, side-by-side and slightly overlapping, to create a rectangle. Repeat with the remaining prosciutto slices, slightly overlapping, at the long side of the first rectangle.
2. Spread the dip over the beef. Place the beef, dip-side down, on the prosciutto. Roll up to enclose the beef. Place the beef, seam-side down, in a roasting pan. Roast for 45 minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover with foil. Set aside for 10 minutes to rest. Top with basil.
Cook's tip: For moist, tender meat, cook the beef to medium. Beef fillet is a lean cut, so if you cook it for too long it may become dry and tough.
