Stop and look for one second at this delicious Steak with Creamy Mushroom Peppercorn Sauce - yum!
Sometimes steak just isn't complete without a creamy peppercorn sauce and this one is low syn and tastes amazing.
How do you like your steak? Years ago I probably wouldn't of eaten steak unless it was well done and charred, now however, I always order mine medium. When cooking a steak at home, it has to be my cast iron pan, you get a lovely sear like you just will not get with any other pan. I have one like this:
All steak really needs is good seasoning and it will taste amazing, but when I want a sauce, this is my go to and if you ever need a good excuse to make this sauce, mushrooms are a speed food, so you are adding some speed foods to your plate with this. You can choose any type of mushrooms you like, but I always choose cremini for this dish. They have a dark colour to regular mushroom and a slightly richer flavour.
I like to serve this Steak with Creamy Mushroom Peppercorn Sauce with syn free fries and some green veg of choice, sauteed shredded brussel sprouts are a great one when in season. This would also be great with any potato side - regular or sweet potato
- 2 Steaks (trimmed of visible fat) - approx 6oz/170g

- Heat a cast iron pan or skillet or a medium high heat, spray with spray oil. Season steaks well with salt and black pepper and add to the hot pan and fry to your liking. (If you prefer you can cook this on a grill pan)
- While steaks are cooking you can make up the sauce
- Spray a frying pan with spray oil over a medium heat, add the mushrooms and the crushed garlic and fry until lightly golden.
- Season well with some grinded black peppercorns (from a pepper mill)
- Stir in the cream cheese and the stock and whisk till smooth. Reduce heat and allow to simmer until sauce thickens. If sauce reduces too much just add a little more stock.
