Preparation

Prepare some chopped herbs and sprinkle on the fillets. Salt the fillets on both sides. Generously oil a frying pan and brown the fillets for 3 minutes on each side, until you get a nice caramelised, crispy surface. Set aside. Prepare a sauce by frying some onion in a little olive oil, deglazing with the wine and then adding sugar and blueberries. Let it cook for a few minutes in order to obtain a sauce, crushing the blueberries with the help of a wooden spoon.

Tips
To make the best possible beef fillet with blueberry sauce, season your meat with a touch of mustard – it will be irresistible.
