First-of-the-season peaches get a flavour boost on the stove, paired with peppery arugula and seared Aussie beef…all atop crunchy toast.


  • 700g Australian Beef Tenderloin
  • 4 tbsp ground Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped thyme
  • ½ tbsp chopped shallots
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Salt and pepper
  • 250g arugula
  • 2 large yellow peaches
  • 1 whole French baguette (or your preference), sliced
  • 4 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  2. Remove silver skin on tenderloin. Season with salt and pepper. Add oil to a sauté pan and preheat to medium. Sear beef tenderloin, rotate every minute until golden brown all the way around. Place in the oven for 10 min or until desired temperature is reached.

  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, drizzle olive oil and sauté shallots for 30 seconds. Add mustard, brown sugar, honey, thyme, salt and pepper. Mix until brown sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.

  4. Take tenderloin out of the oven and let it rest for 5-10 minutes, brushing tenderloin with glaze (reserve 2 tablespoons).

  5. Slice baguette bread into 2-4 cm slices. Cut peaches into halves. Coat a small sauté pan with olive oil and heat to medium high. Place peaches cut-side down and bread slices inside the pan. Sauté until peaches are golden brown and bread slices are crispy outside and soft in the centre. Remove from heat.

To Serve:

Slice halved peaches into wedges. Place a peach wedge on top of a slice of bread, place a small bunch of arugula on top, add salt and pepper to taste. Slice tenderloin into a thin slice and place on top of arugula. Drizzle with mustard glaze.
