Steak with Red Wine Sauce
My son, Graham, reckons one would have to go a long way to get a better steak in a restaurant!
YOU WILL NEED
- 300 - 400 g rump, fillet or rib eye steak (we used fillet, see picture for preparation)
- Ina Paarman's Garlic Pepper Seasoning
- olive oil
- ½ cup (125 ml) red wine
- 1 x 25 g Ina Paarman’s Liquid Beef Stock
- ½ cup (125 ml) fresh cream
- Alternatively, use our Ready to Serve Pepper Sauce or Mushroom Sauce
Season steaks generously on both sides with Garlic Pepper Seasoning and drizzle with olive oil. Leave at room temperature for 10 – 15 minutes.
Preheat a dry, heavy based frying pan (not a ribbed griddle pan) until very hot. Put the oiled and seasoned steaks on the hot surface and press flat. Do not turn until well browned. Then turn and brown the second side. Now you can turn every minute until cooked to your liking. Remove to a warm plate. Cover with foil and allow to rest while making the sauce.
Add the red wine to the pan and cook over high heat until reduced by half, stir in the Liquid Beef Stock and cream. Bring to the boil. Add any juices that might have leaked out of the steak. Cook until the sauce has thickened a little then pour it over the steak. Serve with chips (try our Ultimate Potato Chips) and a salad.
Treat large brown mushrooms exactly like the steak – serve with the same sauce.
