- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 tbsp butter
- 250g mushrooms, sliced
- 1 tbsp plain flour
- 500g fillet steak, sliced or 500g of hard veg, i.e. spuds, turnips, swedes, carrots, parsnips that type of thing.
Could also add a variety of beans.
- 150g crème fraîche or substitute to make low cal
- 1 tsp English mustard
- 100ml beef stock or veg stock
- ½ small pack of parsley, chopped
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan then add 1 sliced onion and cook on medium heat until completely softened, around 15 mins, adding a little splash of water if it starts to stick.
Crush in 1 garlic clove and cook for 2-3 mins more, then add 1 tbsp butter.
Once the butter is foaming a little, add 250g sliced mushrooms and cook for around 5 mins until completely softened.
Season everything well, then tip onto a plate.
1 tbsp plain flour into a bowl with a big pinch of salt and pepper
Add 500g of sliced fillet steak in the seasoned flour.
Add the steak pieces to the pan, splashing in a little oil if the pan looks dry, and fry for 3-4 mins, until well coloured.
Add the onions and mushrooms back into the pan.
Whisk 150g crème fraîche, 1 tsp English mustard and 100ml stock together, then stir into the pan.
Cook over medium heat until either meat or veg are to your taste. I often use a slow oven ( 150C ish) or a slow cook put (about 5 hours on low)
