Prosciutto-wrapped eye fillet

Prosciutto-wrapped eye fillet


Serves 4


Gluten-free, egg-free, nut-free

  • 4 (about 150g each) eye fillet steaks
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • 4 toothpicks

Trim the fat and rind from the prosciutto. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each steak. Depending on the thickness of your steak, you may have to fold the prosciutto in half. Use a toothpick to secure the end of the prosciutto.


Heat a non-stick frypan over high heat and brown the sides of each steak (navigating around the toothpick) for about 2 minutes or until the prosciutto is crisp.


Then cook the flat sides of the steaks for 3-4 minutes each side for medium (depending on thickness — mine were 2cm thick) or until cooked to your liking. Set aside to rest for a few minutes.


Serve each steak on a big mound of creamy mash and pour any meat juices over the top. Dad will love it.

  • This is a very decadent, but very simple meal. Most children will be able to help with wrapping the prosciutto and stabbing it with a toothpick. And will surely love mashing the proverbial out of the potatoes!
