Fillet Steak with Wild Mushrooms
Celebrate valentine's day with an extravagant home cooked fillet steak. Serve with mash and vegetables of your choice; perhaps even toasting the occasion with glasses of pink champagne.
1 Rub the cut surfaces of the beef with pepper and garlic and then put 1 teaspoon of the oil into a non-stick frypan and heat strongly.
2 Saute the beef on a high heat for 2 minutes each side and then remove but keep warm.
3 Now add the remaining oil and the mushrooms and saute over medium heat for 2 minutes.
4 Add the wine and push the mushrooms to the side of the pan. Stir what is left in the pan to create a deglazed, reduced sauce, adding salt to taste. Serve the sauce and mushrooms with the beef, mounted on a bed of mash. Garnish with chopped herbs, if liked.
