Any steak dish is always incomplete without some sauce, be it mustard sauce or even an olive oil dressing. (By the way, steak and mustard is oh-so-good!) It definitely brings your steak to a whole new dimension, so next time you have steak at a restaurant, always get a sauce to go with your steak.
Here's my attempt on one of the more popular sauces - mushroom sauce. It's as easy as 1-2-3!
roughly 50g mushroom ( about 4 medium/10 small mushrooms), finely sliced
1 garlic clove, finely diced
1 tbsp cream
25ml white wine
1. melt butter in saucepan, slightly brown the garlic then sauté the mushrooms.
2. set mushrooms aside but retain the fats on the pan. add the wine and simmer, reduce it slightly before adding cream and parsley.
3. add the mushrooms back, cook for another minute then keep warm till ready to serve.
p/s: other recipes suggest adding wine to mushrooms, allowing alcohol to cook for a minute, and maybe you can add beef/veal glaze, simmer for another minute before removing mushrooms. following this, strain the liquid into another pan and reduce slightly before adding cream.
