Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 sirloin steaks , about 140g/5oz each

For the topping

  • 25g butter
  • 100g fresh ceps , trimmed and finely sliced
  • 1 garlic clove , chopped
  • 50ml white wine
  • small handful mixed soft herbs such as parsley , chives and tarragon, leaves picked and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp crème fraîche
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 25g parmesan , grated

Method

  • STEP 1

    First, make the topping. Heat the butter in a frying pan until foaming, then fry the ceps for 4 mins until soft. Add the garlic, cook for 1 min more, then splash the wine into the pan and simmer until dry. Tip the ceps into a bowl and combine with the rest of the ingredients.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the grill to high. Heat the oil in a large frying pan until practically smoking, then sear the steaks for 1 min on each side until well browned (this will give you a rare steak). Spoon the topping over the steaks and place under the grill for 3-4 mins until bubbling and golden. Lift the steaks onto plates and serve with salad.

RECIPE TIPS
WHY NOT TRY

Tossing fried ceps through cooked tagliatelle with lots of herbs and a good glug of olive oil. Or simply spreading the topping on toast - a kind of mushroom rarebit.
