Cheesy Jalapeño Steak with a Creamy Mushroom Sauce!


 For steak:

3 pieces of fillet steak (1-2cm thick)

1teaspoon salt

Half a teaspoon pepper

1tablespoon crushed chillies

1teaspoon crushed garlic paste

Half a Chilli finely chopped

2tablespoons lemon juice 

3tablespoons butter for frying 
For sauce:

1 cup of sliced mushrooms

1tablespoom ghee or butter

250ml clover fresh cream

Pinch of salt and pepper

Finely diced jalapeño (use how much you prefer according to heat)

Handful of cheese (Gouda or cheddar)

  1. Marinate the steak in all the above ingredients stated. Leave it for about an hour before cooking so spices can be infused.
  2. Cook the steak on a medium heated pan with some butter for about 5 minutes on each side. ( time depends on how you like your steak, I prefer mines medium to well done). If the steak dries out while cooking it’s preferable to add a tablespoon of water to it to keep it from sticking to the pan.
  3. While the steak is cooking,prepare the sauce. Sauté your mushrooms in a small pot with a tablespoon of ghee or bitter until they’ve softened and slightly browned, then add the salt, pepper and fresh cream. Wait for the sauce to start boiling and slightly thicken. (I added a small amount of finely chopped green chillies to the sauce but it’s optional)
  4. Set steak and sauce aside and heat your oven to 180degrees. 
  5. Place your steak on a tray, spoon over the creamy mushroom sauce and then sprinkle some cheese on each piece of steak and dress with either pickled or freshly sliced jalapeños. Bake in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes until the cheese has completely melted.
