The most tender, most delicious fillet steak cuts, and my hubby's absolute favourite meal. I normally serve it with a pepper steak sauce which adds amazing flavour and spice to the meal. Our favourite 'special weekend' dinner!! :)
1 kg fillet steak, cut into slices (get the tenderest cuts of meat)
Make small cuts on the fillet slices to help the marinade get absorbed better and to tenderize the fillet.
Prepare this marinade..
1 tbsp. ginger paste
1 tbsp. garlic paste
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp. yoghurt
2 tsp. red chili powder
1 tbsp. roughly crushed black pepper
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. melted butter
½ tsp. cumin powder
Mix everything into a paste, then apply on the steak slices on both sides. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
Put the steak in a pressure cooker with 1 cup of water and cook for about 10-15 minutes, or until tender. Remove and set aside. Heat 2 tbsp. of butter on a frying pan, then fry the steak on both sides just to give it a nice color.
If any water remained after boiling the steak, set it aside to be used in the sauce.
For the sauce you will need:
1 onion, chopped fine
2 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vinegar
splash of soya sauce or any steak sauce (like A1, Worcestershire, HP sauce..etc.)
1 tsp. corn flour mixed in a bit of water to form a paste
1-2 cups water (you can use the stock remaining from boiling steak)
salt to taste
2 tbsp. cream (optional)
1 tbsp. crushed black pepper
Heat the butter in the same pan as you fried the steak, fry the onions until almost golden. Add the vinegar and scrape any meat stuck on the pan. Add the water and salt, simmer together for a while. Add the corn flour and stir until slightly thickened, then finally add the cream. Mix together, add the black pepper, splash of soya sauce or any steak sauce, adjust salt and your sauce is ready to serve
