Marinaded steak strips
We've been away for the weekend and brought back some steak from my mother's freezer. The provenance and age are uncertain, so I thought it could probably do with some help. A marinade of thin strips seemed the best way to do this.
2 tbsp prepared mustard
1 tbsp honey
4tbsp wine vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed
5mls ground black pepper
450g steak, trimmed, then cut into 0.5 cm thin strips across the grain of the meat
Mix all the marinade ingredients in a non- metal bowl. Put in steak, mix and leave for about 1 hour.
To cook: heat olive oil in large frying pan. Tip in meat when oil starts to smoke. Cook on high heat about 5 minutes. Lower heat and tip in enough double cream to make a sauce. I served this with white rice and leek chunks softened in butter.
