1 Kg whole beef fillet

Extra horseradish sauce, to serve

Sliced spring onions, to serve

Whole Wheat Couscous Stuffing

1 cup cooked Pouyoukas whole wheat couscous

2 spring onions, finely chopped

4 tablespoons (60 ml) chopped fresh dill

4 tablespoons (60 ml) chopped coriander

4 tablespoons (60 ml) horseradish sauce

1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil

A squeeze of lemon juice

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Combine the whole wheat couscous, spring onions, dill, coriander, horseradish sauce, olive oil and lemon juice.

Season well with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, mix well and set aside.

Slice the fillet down the middle, taking care not to cut all the way through and flatten out on a clean work surface.

Season well with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Fill the fillet with the stuffing, taking care not to overfill. Roll up and secure the entire fillet with kitchen string. Season the outside of the fillet.

Heat some olive oil in a non-stick frying pan and sear the fillet on all sides.

Transfer to a lined baking tray and roast in a preheated 200°C oven for 20 minutes.

Let the meat rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.

Serve with extra spring onions and horseradish sauce.
