Colin Price

Serves: 2 

  • 2 beef sirloin steaks
  • good knob butter
  • 4 tablespoons brandy
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 125ml (4 fl oz) red wine
  • dash Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 50g (2 oz) button mushrooms, sliced
  • 8 tablespoons Dijon mustard, divided
  • 250ml (9 fl oz) double cream

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Place the steaks between two sheets of cling film; pound with a meat tenderiser.
  2. Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium high heat and heat until it begins to smoke. Cook the steaks for 1 to 2 minutes on each side until they have browned. Pour brandy over steaks and carefully ignite. Once the flames burn off, remove steaks from the pan and set aside.
  3. Cook the onion and garlic in the same frying pan over medium heat until softened. Stir in the red wine, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper; mix well. Mix in the mushrooms, stir and cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, coat one side of each of the steaks with 2 tablespoons of the Dijon mustard each. Gently lay them on top of the sauce in the frying pan, mustard-side down. Spread 2 tablespoons mustard on top of each of the steaks. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove the steaks from the sauce and keep warm.
  5. Stir the cream into the mushroom sauce and bring to a gentle simmer. Reduce heat to medium low, return the steaks to the sauce and simmer for 1 minute more before serving.

Just made this for my husband and my dinner and we loved it. So easy to make - 01 Nov 2011


So good and so very, very rich! There was plenty of sauce, in fact too much for me I couldn't eat it all as it was so rich, a little goes a long way! Fantastic though, will be making again. - 14 Jan 2011
