2 steaks - fillet, sirloin, ribeye or rump
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 knob butter
500g field and button mushrooms - sliced
2 teaspoons butter
4 teaspoons wholegrain mustard
1/2 pot whipping cream
This is a great sauce for steak lovers. The choice of cut is up to you.
Preparation time: 3 mins
Cook time: 15 - 20 mins
Heat a frying pan on a medium high heat.
When hot add the olive oil and spread over the pan.
When hot add the steaks.
Cook time varies greatly on the steak and its thickness. On average cook each side for 8 - 10 minutes for a medium steak, but really you need to try and judge it yourself.
When the steak is nearly cooked add a generous knob of butter. Allow the butter to melt and then spoon the melted butter on top of the steak. Turn the steak a couple of times and continue spooning the butter onto the steak.
Allow steak to stand for two minutes before adding sauce / serving.
Melt butter and oil over medium high heat.
Add mushrooms, stir for 3 minutes.
Add half the mustard and stir on the heat for one minute.
Stir in the cream and the remaining mustard.
Heat until boiling and reduced slightly.
Season to taste with salt and pepper, pour over the steaks and serve with homemade chips and veg!
