Wash and peel the potatoes and cut them into cubes. Peel the shallots and cut into slices 1 cm thick. Sauté the potatoes with the shallots in a pan with a little olive oil, add salt and a little water, then close the lid and cook gently over a low heat. Season the beef fillet with whole sea salt and smear oil on both sides. Prepare the cheese ‘fondue’ as follows: remove the egg white and add the yolk to a small pan; add a dash of milk; then grate some pecorino cheese over the egg and milk mixture. Beat with a whisk until the mixture is well amalgamated. Heat over a low heat until it becomes creamy and smooth. Stir constantly so that the egg doesn’t curdle. Sear the fillet over a high heat, keeping the meat rare. Serve with some of the cheesy sauce poured over, with the sautéed potatoes and shallots on the side. This main course with contrasting flavours is ready!
