Method

  1. Season the steaks with black pepper. Heat a large non-stick frying pan until really hot, and cook the steaks for 2-3 minutes, without moving them. Sprinkle with salt, turn over and cook for 2-3 minutes more; keep warm.

  2. Turn down the heat and fry the chopped shallots in the butter until softened, about 2 minutes. Pour in the red wine, add the thyme and reduce by two-thirds. Stir in the redcurrant jelly, mustard and salt and pepper. Return the steaks to the pan, heat through in the sauce and serve.

Absolutely delicious, this recipe worked really well and we served the steaks with the celeriac potato and rosemary gratin and some steamed kale - a real winner.
