Steak Diane


You'll need

120 gm butter, coarsely chopped 60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 4 Scotch fillet steaks (about 350gm each), at room temperature 6 good-quality anchovy fillets 2 golden shallots, finely diced 50 ml brandy 60 ml (¼ cup) chicken stock 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 1½ tbsp Dijon mustard 1 tbsp green peppercorns 350 ml thickened cream To serve: watercress sprigs drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Heat one-third of the butter and half the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat until butter foams. Season two steaks to taste and cook, turning once, until browned (1-2 minutes each side). Repeat with remaining oil, half remaining butter and remaining two steaks. Transfer steaks to an oven tray and roast until cooked to your liking (3-4 minutes for medium-rare). Set aside to rest (10 minutes).
  • 02
  • Wipe out pan with absorbent paper and return to medium heat. Add anchovies, shallot and remaining butter and stir occasionally until shallot is tender (2-3 minutes). Add brandy, reduce slightly (1 minute), then add stock and reduce slightly (1-2 minutes). Add remaining ingredients, reduce to a sauce consistency (2-3 minutes) and season to taste. Slice steaks, pour sauce over and serve with watercress.
This recipe is from the May 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
