Pan Fried Steak with Sauce
This is a quick and easy way to prepare steaks with a really nice sauce to top them with.I did use cream instead of milk for this recipe and upped the amount of horseradish but that was just our personal preference. I served ours with a baked potato and also made bacon wrapped asparagus. If you would like to read more reviews on this recipe or view more photos please click here.


1/4 Teaspoon sea salt
1/4 Teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1lb Sirloin steak (I used fillet mignon)
1 Tablespoon butter
1/2 Teaspoon garlic, minced (I add extra)
1 Medium sweet onion, finely chopped
3 Cups small brown button mushrooms, sliced
1 Teaspoon thyme, dried
2 Tablespoons flour
1 Cup beef stock
1 Cup milk (I use cream)
1 Tablespoon prepared horseradish (I add extra our preference)
1/8 Cup parsley, fresh chopped


1. Rub salt and pepper on both sides of steak.

2. In large pan melt butter and brown steak well on both sides.

3. (2-3 minutes per side– do not cut down on browning time as this really contributes to the overall flavour of the dish) Remove steak and set aside.

4. Reduce heat to med-high add remaining butter, garlic, onion, mushrooms and thyme, (stir for 10 minutes) until mushrooms start to brown.

5. Add flour and cook for 1 minute.

6. Add in beef stock, milk and horseradish.

7. Reduce heat and simmer, stir for 5 minutes until sauce thickness.

8. Add steak and juice, simmer for 5 minutes.

9. Let steak rest for 5 minutes while you season the sauce with additional salt and pepper to taste.

10. Slice steak thinly across the grain, drizzle with sauce and sprinkle parsley on top.
