How to make a delicious Beef fillet with Figs

Beef fillet with figs is a tasty second Italian dish, perfect if you have invited friends to dinner and want to surprise them by preparing an original and refined second course.

I often make this simple recipe even when I want to prepare a romantic dinner for my husband.

I pair some very good baked potatoes or sandy potatoes and obviously an excellent Italian red wine; so the evening is really perfect!

Obviously, I make this dish in the summer when there are really good figs, especially here in Italy where the plant grows in many home gardens; let’s not forget that these fruits, in addition to being good, are fruits rich in properties that are important for health.

During the winter, however, I prepare the Grilled fillet in red wine sauce, also very simple to prepare, but very effective! As for the cooking times of both these recipes, they are for rare fillets, but if you prefer them more cooked, just increase the cooking time; but remember the more you cook the fillet, the less tender the meat will be!

But now let’s see together how the Beef fillet with figs is prepared.
