Marinaded Fillet of Beef

1 whole beef fillet (1.5 kg)		port or red wine
black pepper				crushed garlic
approx. 4 oz butter

Rub the beef with garlic and fresh-ground black pepper. Marinade overnight in port or red wine, turning occasionally.

Prior to cooking, pour off the marinade.

Place large "dobs" of butter on top of the fillet and cook in a moderate oven for about one hour, or until as cooked as desired. Baste every 15 minutes.

Serve with Red Pepper Bernaise sauce.
