How to cook

Prepare mushrooms

  • Wipe clean and roughly slice all the mushrooms, then peel and finely slice the garlic.
  • Heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan on high heat, add the mushrooms and fry for 3 minutes, or until golden.
  • Add the garlic, crushed peppercorns and a pinch of sea salt, then cook for a further 2 minutes.
  • Pour over the brandy (if using), and fry for 1 minute, or until the liquid has cooked away, then turn the pan off and set aside.

Start cooking

  • Place a clean frying pan on high heat to get screaming hot.
  • Drizzle the steaks with a little oil, and season well with salt and black pepper, then rub all over.
  • Place the steaks into the hot pan and cook to your liking: 1-2 minutes on each side for medium rare, 2-3 minutes for medium and 4 minutes for well done.
  • Meanwhile, pick and roughly chop the parsley.
  • Once cooked, remove the steaks to a warm plate to rest.
  • Turn the pan down to low, add the creme fraiche, a splash of water and the parsley and mushrooms.
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring well to mix through all the lovely meat juices.
  • Serve the steak drizzled with peppery mushroom sauce and the sides of your choice.
