HOW I COOK MY STEAKS
(I realise not for the purists but this is how I do it!)
Ingredients you will need
Small Chopped Onion
Beef Stock Cube
1 teaspoon French Mustard
1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
Dash Worcester Sauce
3 tablespoons of Double Cream
Knob of Butter
Red Wine Sauce
1 Red Onion
Beef Stock Cube
2 Large Teaspoons of Red Currant Jelly
How to make MY recipe
Sliver of oil in pan and heat then add small cut onion to soften. Mix up an oxo or beef stock cube in a cup.
Add steaks to pan, as oil dries out spoon in some of the stock [tea spoon at a time] Just enough to stop sticking .
If steaks are a reasonable size, cook for a few minutes then turn and season with black pepper and salt. If you want to see how far it is cooked i.e. rare etc just pull the steak slightly apart with two forks. Remove steaks from pan and place in pre heated oven on warm plate to rest .
Depending on amount of residue add a couple of tea spoons of beef stock, one tea spoon of French mustard and one tea spoon of Dijon Mustard and a dash of Worcester sauce.
Reduce down. Remove from heat and add 3 tablespoons of double cream, stir in and place back on the heat to warm through.
Place steaks on warm plate to serve
Pour juice from plate into pan with sauce in it
and pour over steaks.
For extra shine stir in a knob of butter.
To change the sauce simply add:
Grain mustard for Mustard Sauce
Ground black pepper for Pepper Sauce
Dash of Whisky for Whisky sauce
Knob of blue cheese for Blue Cheese Sauce
RED WINE SAUCE
Finely cut a red onion and fry to soften it.
Add equal quantities of beef stock and red wine.
Stir in two large tea spoons of red currant jelly.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Add in meat juices as before and then knob of butter
Stir and serve.
