Heat the clarified butter in pan and fry the meat on all sides on a very high heat. Then wrap in aluminium foil and cook for approx. 1 hour (The core temperate should be 60°C). If desired cook for a little less to keep the meat pink.

Just before the meat is done, remove the foil and season well with salt. Leave to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

Slice the meat and arrange it on the rocket along with the apples. Garnish with feta cheese.
