Cut the fillet into 4 equal-sized pieces, place a bay leaf and a sprig of fresh thyme on each piece, tie up each piece with string then use the string to tie each piece to the handle of a large wooden spoon. 5 minutes before serving, dip the pieces of meat into the simmering stock by placing the wooden spoon on the casserole dish.
