  1. Trim any sinew or "silver" skin from fillets. Using a mortar and pestle, pound cardamom pods to release seeds; discard pods. Add coriander, berry mixture, garlic and vinegar and pound to a paste. Spread over fillets, cover and stand at room temperature for 1-2 hours. Reduce beef stock by boiling to about 375ml (1 1/2 cups). Keep warm.

  2. Brush a cast-iron grill pan (with removable or ovenproof handle) with mustard seed oil and heat on top of the stove until very hot. Cook fillets for 1 minute on each side. Transfer pan to a 220C oven and bake for 5 minutes - no longer. Remove pan from oven, transfer fillets to a warm plate and stand for 5 minutes, Add the thawed riberries to reduced stock and bring to the boil.

  3. Serve meat sliced thinly on the diagonal, with sauce spooned over.
