4 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped boiled ham or prosciutto di Parma
2 1/2 cups fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced or 1 ounce dried porcini, rehydrated and chopped
1/3 cup minced parsley
Juice of one lemon
8 slices beef fillet (each weighing 2 ounces)
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350F
Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in an ovenproof sauté pan. Cook the ham and mushrooms until the mushrooms have given off their liquid. Stir in the parsley and add salt and pepper.
Salt and pepper the beef slices and arrange them in a single layer on top of the mushroom mixture.
Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the meat and sprinkle the lemon juice over them.
Bake for 15 minutes then turn the fillets and sprinkle them with the lemon juice; continue baking for 5 minutes. Serve immediately with some of the mushrooms and pan juices over each serving.
