- Preparation Time 05MINS
- Cook Time 15MINS
4 x 250g sirloin steak
50g black peppercorns coarsely cracked
1 tablespoons vegetable oil
60g unsalted butter, chopped
4 golden shallots, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
100ml red wine
250ml Campbells Real Stock Beef
100g pure cream
STEP 1 Remove the steaks from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking to bring the meat to room temperature for optimal cooking.
STEP 2 Heat the butter and oil in a large heavy based frying pan over a medium heat. When the butter starts to foam add the steak and cook for 4-5 minutes each side or until browned. Set aside to rest for approximately 5 minutes while making the sauce.
STEP 3 Meanwhile, place the same pan over a low heat keeping the pan juices. Add the garlic and golden shallots cook for 2-3 minutes or until just soft. Add the wine and peppercorns, increase the heat to medium high and simmer for 1 minute, add the Campbells Real stock and cream, simmer for 8 minutes or until reduced by half. Return the steak and any juices to the pan for around 1 minute to warm through, check to see if any further seasoning is required.
STEP 4 To serve, transfer the steak to plates spoon over the sauce, and serve with a side of steamed vegetables and mashed potato. For a lighter mashed potato with extra flavor add beef stock instead of butter or milk when mashing.
