Prepare the beef:

  3. Put a heavy frying pan over a high heat and once it’s very hot sear the beef on all sides
  4. Submerge the beef fillet in the ice bath to halt the cooking

  7. Add the aubergine and peanuts and cook for 10 minutes
  8. Add the coconut milk and simmer gently for 10-15 minutes so that the mixture reduces and thickens
