Learn how to make this versatile mushroom topping, good simply spread on toast and grilled as well as atop steak, as it is here
For the topping
- 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.
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.
