    Serves: 4 

    • 125g chopped mushrooms
    • 65g unsalted butter, softened
    • 1/4 cup minced onion
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper to taste
    • 4 (125g) eye fillet steaks
    • 3 tablespoons strawberry jam
    • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
    • 5 tablespoons vanilla ice cream

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Mince mushrooms, then mix with butter, minced onion, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Reserve half of butter mixture and divide other half over the 4 fillets.
    2. Heat a large frypan over medium-high heat. Place steaks, butter side down, in hot frypan. Spread remaining butter mixture over steaks. Cook to desired doneness, turning once. Transfer fillets to a plate, cover loosely with foil and keep warm.
    3. Return frypan to medium-high heat. Stir in reserved mushroom liquid and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of pan. Add jam and lemon juice and simmer until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in ice cream and cook until sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes. Pour over fillets and serve immediately.

    It wasn't around long enough to take a picture 'cause it was SO GOOD! I was so tempted to use a splash of red wine to deglaze because I only had powdered bullion, but the flavours were FANtastic anyway! It tastes like something you would order in a fancy restaurant. My steak was absolutely perfect (rare) but I had to cut my husband's steak (must be well-done) into thick strips to finish it because the mushrooms were threatening to burn. Then, with both steaks in the pan (mine to reheat, his to finish) I started the finishing steps for the amazing sauce by swirling around the pan so the juices would get around and under the steak and mushrooms. The plating was gorgeous! We had been 'Christmas snacking' all day, so all I needed was the garlic mashed potatoes (no pepper--just marg and cream)to add to the plate. My husband LOVED it! I used black currant jam and Real mushrooms, too. Excellent!  -  25 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Altered this recipe to our taste as follows: Used fresh mushrooms instead of canned, used currant jelly instead of strawberry and substituted a fruity white wine for vanilla ice cream. Pan searing the filet made it extra juicy.  -  06 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY!! Okay everyone this is it, this recipe is delicious!! I made it for my hudband and two kids and it was a winner all around! The only thing I did was put less mushrooms into it, cause we are not huge fans!! If you are having a formal dinner this would work. It looks beautiful after you frizzle the sauce onto the steaks. And when they take a bite mmmm what a suprise.  -  27 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
