METHOD

1
Wrap each spear of asparagus with a slice of prosciutto and firmly press to secure.
2
Season the scotch fillets with salt and 1 tbsp of pepper.
3
Preheat a large frying pan over medium-high heat, and add 2 tbsp of olive oil. Then add the steaks and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare, then rest and keep warm in a warm oven.
4
Add the remaining 2 tbsp of oil to the pan along with the asparagus and cook for 3 minutes, turning often, until the prosciutto is crisp, then set aside with the steaks.
5
Reduce the heat to a medium, add garlic and thyme to the same pan and cook for 20 seconds. Then add the remaining peppercorns and beef stock, and reduce by half.
6
Add the cream and reduce it by half, seasoning if required, and add the parsley. If you prefer your sauce thicker, you can add a small amount of flour and stir through.
7
To serve, place the steak on individual serving plates with the asparagus, spoon the peppercorn sauce over, and enjoy!
