“So I’ve got a steak ? and I couldn’t think of a better dish than a french inspired bordelaise sauce with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables.”
- 1. Starting with the sauce, soften the onion in the oil for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for a further 3 minutes. Then add the carrots, thyme, bay leaves, red wine, stock and soy sauce. You can find our recipe for chicken stock here.
- 2. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook the sauce until the carrots soften and then add 20ml water and the corn flour. Once the sauce has thickened strain it separating the veg.
- 3. Boil the potatoes until they are soft. Strain them and return them to the saucepan. Add the mayonnaise, butter, white pepper, milk and season with salt and cracked black pepper. Whisk with a power whisker.
- 4. Put a heavy bottomed frying pan on a high heat. Add the oil and once it is hot add the steaks to the pan. Fry each side for approximately 3 minutes. Add the butter, rosemary, thyme and garlic and baste the steaks. Once cooked to your liking rest for 5 mins before plating. Serve with steamed vegetables.
Strictly this sauce should be made with claret but Waterloo Cottage Farm stock a delicious Cotes du Rhone that will work well with this dish.
