Grilled Steak with Sorrel Sauce

prep 10 mins cook 15 mins
  • 4 fillet steaks, about 175 g (6 oz) each
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 50 g (2 oz) butter
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 150 ml (¼ pint) single cream
  • 75 g (3 oz) sorrel, shredded
  • salt and pepper

Rub the steaks with the garlic and a little salt and pepper. Place on the upper rack of the halogen oven. Set the temperature to 250°C (482°F) and cook for 3 minutes on each side. (Cook a little longer if you prefer your steaks well done.) Remove from the oven and leave to rest in a warm place while making the sauce.

Remove the rack from the oven and add the butter to the bowl. Cook briefly at 200°C (392°F) until melted. Add the shallots and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the cream and sorrel, and cook for 5 minutes until heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and spoon over the steaks. Serve with chunky chips.
