Servings: Change Serving


Allow the steaks to come to room temperature.
In a big heavy-based pan, fry the mushrooms in the butter and olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and season to taste. Keep aside in the pan.
Heat a griddle pan until piping hot. Brush each steak with olive oil and season on both sides with the salt and pepper and sear for 2 minutes on each side.

Remove the steaks from the pan and place on a warm plate, leave at an angle to rest while you finish the sauce.
Deglaze the hot griddle pan with the Sedgwick’s Original Old Brown. Place the mushrooms in the pan back on the heat and pour the sherry with the pan juices into it. Add the cream, soy sauce and a good grinding of black pepper.
Serve the warm steaks with the mushroom sauce.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
