Steak Fillet with all the Trimmings

You will need:

  • 8oz fillet Steak
  • 1/2 tomato
  • 1 Portabello Mushroom
  • Potatoes
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • 85ml double Cream
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 beef oxo cube
  • Splash of white wine
  • Splash of hot water
  • 1tsp of crushed peppercorns

Preparation Method for Chips:

  1. Fill the saucepan of oil to about 2/3 full and heat until hot
  2. Peel the potatoes and cut into chunky chips
  3. Put the potatoes into the hot oil and fry for about 15/20mins until golden and crispy
  4. Once finished, drain and serve

Preparation Method for Peppercorn Sauce:

  1. Add the cream to a small saucepan and heat gently.
  2. Crumble the oxo cube into the cream
  3. Add Dijon mustard, and most of the peppercorns leaving some for the steak
  4. Add wine and water stirring all together
  5. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper
  6. keep stirring until quite hot

Preparation Method for the Steak:

I realise people like steaks differently so I have given you approximate times for a 8oz steak that is about an inch thick.

  1. rare – grill for 1 to 2 minutes each side
  2. medium rare – grill for 2 to 3 minutes each side
  3. Medium – grill for 5 to 6 minutes each side
  4. Medium well – on a high heat grill for 1 minute on each side, then on a medium heat grill for 5 to 6 minutes each side
  5. Well done – The trick with a well done steak is low and slow! Grill for 10 to 12 minutes each side

I prefer my steak nice and rare, still mooing!!!

Preparation Method for your Tomato and Mushroom:

  1. Drizzle a little oil over your Tomato and grill for 3-4 minutes, depending on its size
  2. Drizzle a little oil over your Portabello Mushroom and grill for 4-5 minutes, depending on its size

Now all that is left is to enjoy :0)
