Here’s a delicious seared beef recipe with Parmigiano Reggiano.



For the beef                                                                     
2 x 250g beef fillet, trimmed
¾ cup Dijon mustard
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
¼ cup flat-leaf parsley finely chopped
1 tbsp oregano, finely chopped
1 tbsp thyme, finely chopped
100 g Parmigiano, grated
To serve
Extra-virgin olive oil
Aged balsamic vinegar
100 g rocket leaves, washed and patted dry


  1. Wrap beef in plastic wrap, rolling ends to form a tight even cylinder. Place on a small tray in freezer to chill and firm for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine mustard and garlic in a bowl, season to taste. Remove beef from the freezer and discard plastic wrap. Brush garlic oil mix evenly over beef.
  3. Scatter herbs a large plate and on and roll beef in herbs, pressing to cover evenly.
  4. Heat a medium sized pan to a moderate-high heat. Add olive oil and ear beef evenly by rolling until completely seared. Allow to rest before slicing.
  5. Thinly slice with a very sharp knife arrange on a platter and scatter with rocket. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar to taste, season to taste, scatter with rocket leaves and serve with Parmigiano Reggiano.


Parmigiano Reggiano

Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, known as ‘Parmesan’, is one of the world’s oldest and richest cheeses – still produced today as it was nine centuries ago. Totally natural – it’s the only cheese that has such an extensive maturation which improves the nutrition, aroma and taste. The use of raw milk and the richness of natural ingredients make this cheese a unique and superior product – It takes 14 litres of milk to produce one kilogram of cheese! The minimum maturation time for Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is 12 months, but only when it reaches approximately 24 months of age, is it at its best. As well as having fantastic nutritional qualities, it’s easy to digest and is high in calcium.

Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) product. PDOs are defined and protected by European Union law in order to defend the reputation of regional foods. This mark ensures that Parmigiano Reggiano cheese can only be produced in designated areas of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna to the west of the Reno River and Mantua to the east of the Po River. The area, the natural feed, and the high quality milk with no additives are what makes Parmigiano Reggiano rich, delicious and unique. The history of this King of Cheeses dates back to at least 1200AD and today, Parmigiano Reggiano is still handmade by small artisan dairies with the same care and dedication that was shown 800 years ago.
