Retro steak for a Friday dinner

The other half wanted a ‘nice’ evening meal yesterday. We had steak, mushrooms, onion, and some green veg, so I made some healthy wedges baked in the oven, sprinkled with a little chilli powder, and seasoned and drizzled some oil over the steaks.

Then I thought it would be nice to make a sauce, like a classic Diane, but I couldn’t find the recipe in any of my books. I resorted to memory and a few variations from online, so I put a bit of boiling water in the steak pan to lift the tasty bits from their cooking, added a bit of beef stock, then some dijon, worcestershire sauce and a bit of red wine. I added a few tablespoons of cream at the end and it was lovely. Retro. And fab.

Of course, we drowned our dinners in it, but, by the end, we’d mopped it all up.
