  • 2 x 250

  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3
    shallots, finely diced
  • 2
    dijon mustard
  • 1
    worcestershire sauce

  • 1
  • 3
    thick cream
  • 1

5 mins
Heat the butter and fry the seasoned steaks until they are a little less cooked than you would like, (because resting , keeping warm and re-heating the steak in the pan will cook it a little more) – set aside and keep warm.
Fry the shallots in a little more butter until they have softened, and then add the dijon mustard and worcestershire sauce – stir well.

Add the red wine and the stock and bring to a simmer, cooking until the sauce has reduced by a third.

Add the brandy and set alight to burn the alcohol – as soon as the flames have subsided, add the cream and simmer over high heat until the sauce is as thick as whipping cream – about 3 minutes.

Add the parsley, check and correct the salt and pepper to taste, and add the steaks to the pan to warm them – don’t boil the sauce.

Put the steaks on a pre- warmed plate and pour the sauce over the steaks.

Serve with crispy potatoes.
