Donald Russell- a welcome visitor from Scotland

A few days ago Donald Russell from Scotland was
paying a visit to our little Berlin apartment.
That's one of the best beef you can get, 
especially in Europe/Germany. 
It is indeed a bit pricey (7.80Euros per 100g of filet). 
But you have to invest in good dry aged meat...
The filets came in a box and were dark red. 
Due to the dry aging they weren't very wet and 
bloody either.
We almost got no drippings out of it.
But believe me: that's always a very good sign. 
Who needs drippings when the meat is outstandingly 
flavourful and tender.
For filets they were surprisingly fatty and rich. 
A good sign, as well cause the fat made them even 
more tender and yummy.
precious looking filet

We took it out of the oven after 20-25 minutes...

...and it turned out to be perfectly medium rare!
