There’s no denying the importance of matching your steak with a delicious home-made sauce. To add to the recipes we’ve got coming up, we asked our culinary team to create 3 sauces that can be made in minutes. All these sauces serve two.
1. Classic peppercorn sauce
This classic, creamy steak sauce can be ready in no time.
Put 2 tbsp red wine vinegar into a large, non-stick frying pan and bring to a simmer. Add 150ml chicken stock and reduce the mixture by half over high heat. Add 2 tsp green peppercorns, crushing a few of them gently in the pan with the back of a spoon. Season and reduce, then stir in 4 tbsp double cream. Simmer for 1 or 2 mins until the sauce is slightly thickened.
2. Salsa verde
This fresh, zesty Italian green sauce doesn’t require any cooking and can be whizzed up in a magimix or mixed in a bowl for a super quick side.
Chop a small bunch each of parsley, chives and mint into small pieces and mix in a bowl with 1 tsp capers, 2 or 3 chopped anchovies, 1 crushed garlic clove, the juice of 1 lemon and 3 tbsp olive oil. Mix well and season to taste.
3. Béarnaise Butter
Heat a splash of oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and cook, stirring until softened, 3-4 mins. Add 1 garlic clove and cook for a 1 minute more then transfer to a bowl. Allow to cool, then 30g butter and use a spoon to mash the butter and shallots together. Next, mix in the parsley and tarragon. Béarnaise butter made!
