This recipe for Steak with Mushroom Sauce is a great way to treat your man
4 tsp (20 ml) sunflower oil
1 onion, sliced
250 g mushrooms, halved and sliced
2 tbsp (30 ml) cake flour
1 cup (250 ml) low-fat or fat-free milk
lemon juice and black pepper to taste
1 tsp (5 ml) Worcester sauce
1/2 tsp (2,5 ml) dried thyme
4 x 160 g steaks or chops, all fat removed
1/2 tsp (2,5 ml) salt
Heat half the oil in a pan and fry onion and mushrooms until tender and browned. Stir in flour until absorbed and add milk a little at a time.
Stir well to form a sauce. Simmer for a few minutes to thicken. Season with lemon juice, pepper, Worcester sauce and thyme. Heat rest of the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.
Fry meat for 5-7 minutes on the one side. Sprinkle with half the salt and season with lemon juice and black pepper. Turn over.
Fry for another 5-7 minutes and season again. Steak or chops should still be juicy when cooked. Serve meat immediately with mushroom sauce, butternut and a salad or green veggies.
