Beef fillet with blue cheese and pesto cream

ALTOHere’s a delicious beef fillet with blue cheese and pesto cream recipe to try this weekend. Excellent for entertaining and with a glass of ALTO Shiraz.


  • 100 g blue cheese
  •  50 ml lemon juice
  • 200 ml cream
  • 3 Tablespoons basil pesto
  • 10 ml oreganum
  • 10 ml majoram
  • 100 ml Olive oil
  • 10 ml rosemary
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1.50 kg beef



Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and herbs and pour the mixture over the fillet of beef. Refrigerate overnight to marinate.
Place the meat in a casserole dish and bake, covered, in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 20 mins, or until done to your liking.
Slice the fillet into portions and sprinkle with the crumbled blue cheese. Place under a hot grill until the cheese has browned.
Sauce: Heat the pesto and cream over a medium heat, taking care not to allow the mixture to boil. Drizzle the sauce over the fillet. Serve with sautéed vegetables and potato wedges.

Recommended wine: Try the ALTO Shiraz with this dish.
