Sirloin with wild mushroom and cream sauce

    Serves 2


    2 sirloin steaks, on the bone
    Flaky salt
    Freshly ground pepper
    Olive oilSauce:
    1 punnet wild mushrooms
    250ml cream
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    Fresh thyme
    Salt and pepper
    Butter and olive oil


    1. Remove the steaks from their packaging and place on a plate in the fridge to dry out. Do not cover. You can do this overnight or for a few days to dry-age in your fridge. If you don’t have time, pat the steaks dry with some kitchen towel.

    2. Light a cobblestone and wait a few minutes until it has turned grey. Or, if you don’t have a cobblestone on hand, ready your briquettes in the Cobb.

    3. Place the grill grid on the Cobb and close the lid to heat up for 10 minutes.

    4. Rub the steaks with the oil and then season well on both sides with the salt and freshly ground pepper.

    5. Place the steaks on the hot grill grid and do not move (you want the grill lines) for 10 minutes.

    6. Turn once and cook for a further 10 minutes, or depending on the thickness of your steak, for longer.

    7. Let the steaks rest for at least 5 minutes, preferably 10Sauce:

    8. As soon as you’ve removed the steaks, remove the grill grid and replace with the pan. Close the lid and let it heat up for 5-10 minutes.

    9. Remove the lid and add a big knob of butter and a good glug of olive oil, let the butter melt and mix it together.

    10. Add the crushed garlic clove and the mushrooms. Do not keep mixing, let the mushrooms caramelise on one side and then turn them carefully. After about 15 minutes, they should be browning nicely. (You can also use any mushrooms really i.e.: porcini, brown, button, shiitake etc).

    11. Add the cream, lots of freshly ground pepper and pull some thyme leaves (about a tablespoon) over the pan.

    12. Let it simmer for 10 minutes.

    13. By this time the steaks are perfectly well rested and you can add them to the pan to heat up for a minute or 2, or just serve the warm sauce over them.
