Steak-mushrooms

Steak With Mushroom Sauce

Need a treat? This steak is absolutely delicious! It feels special but is really easy to make, so would go down just as well at a dinner party as it does for a midweek meal. It’s great served with chips (which you can dunk in the sauce) but would taste equally good with creamy mash and wilted spinach.




Serves 2
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 25g butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ onion, sliced
  • 80g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 4 rib-eye steaks
  • 15ml brandy
  • 120ml cream
To serve:
  • Chunky chips

Instructions

1. Heat the butter and half of the olive oil in a pan over a medium heat and add the onions and mushrooms. Cook for 4-5 minutes until mushrooms are golden brown, then add the garlic and cook for one minute longer. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
2. Heat another tablespoon of oil in the same pan over a high heat. Season the steaks on both sides with salt and black pepper, massaging the seasonings into the meat.
3. Place the steaks in the hot pan and cook to your liking. Remove to a plate, tent loosely with tinfoil and rest while you make the sauce.
4. Place the same pan over a high heat and add the brandy. Bring to a boil, then add the cream and reduce the heat. Simmer for five minutes, using a wooden spoon to scrape any sticky bits from the bottom of the pan.
5. Add the mushrooms and onions back to the pan and heat through for 1-2 minutes.
6. Stir in any juices that have been released from the steaks.
7. Serve the steaks with the brandy mushroom sauce and chunky chips.
