Steak is a beautiful thing, but dress it up a little with a delectable sauce and you've got yourself a terrific meal.

The red wine and mushrooms one

Are you ever feeling a little low and  in need of real comfort food? The kind that makes your toes curl with happiness? That leaves you with a dreamy, giddy smile all over your face? Then this, is that.

It's a little elegant, and yet not overly polished or serious and you'll have no qualms about scoffing the spoils as fast as you can get fork to mouth.

Some might even say that steak has never had better friends than these mushrooms (who obligingly sponge up all of the beautiful garlic and wine reduction) and creamy parsnip purée. The result? Heroic.

The zingy Asian one

This is one of my favorite go-to dinners when we're feeling like steak, but without all the extra admin (or calories) of any accompaniments other than beautiful fresh salsa and spicy Asian-style dressing.

And I suppose if we were being particular, this is kind of Asian-Mexican fusion with the avocado and tomato salsa on the side, but hey, who's counting?

The classic French one

I think of this un-fussy tarragon Hollandaise sauce as the antithesis to it's sometimes pedantic cousin, monsieur le Béarnaise.

Especially when you make it with this (almost) idiot-proof step-by-step recipe.

Served with crunchy grilled asparagus, this is one way of eating steak that is sure to add a little French class to any meal... so, bon appetit people.
