    Serves: 2 

    • 60g shiitake mushrooms
    • small handful fresh tarragon
    • 1 (350g) steak, such as eye fillet
    • salt and black pepper to taste
    • oil for frying
    • 1 clove garlic, peeled
    • 1/2 onion shallot, sliced
    • 75ml white wine
    • 75ml beef stock
    • 60g butter, cubed

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Separate the mushroom stems from caps. Chop mushroom caps into thirds.
    2. Remove tarragon leaves from stems; discard the stems.
    3. Season the steak with salt and pepper on both sides.
    4. Heat a heavy frying pan over high heat. Once very hot (a drop of water should immediately sizzle and evaporate when flicked onto the pan's surface), add a generous drizzle of oil. Add the steak and cook for 4 minutes, turning once.
    5. Remove the steak from the pan and set aside. Tent with foil to keep warm. Discard the oil remaining in the pan.
    6. Reduce the heat and add the garlic, shallot and mushrooms to the frying pan. Cook till softened, stirring frequently to prevent burning.
    7. Add white wine to the frying pan and cook till reduced slightly, then add beef stock. Reduce heat to low and begin adding butter, one piece at a time. Stir well between each addition. Finally, add the tarragon and stir well.
    8. Serve the mushroom sauce over the steak.

    Didn't really pay attention to the quantities as I drank the rest of the wine, cooked the steak a bit longer too, but this was delicious! Used wild mushrooms rather than Shitake. Served with Parmentier potatoes and petits pois - ok, garden peas.. just trying to sound fancy. Plates were cleared down to the pattern. Thank you!  -  27 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
