I have some steak (!) I need to cook tonight, looks very.... meh. I have no peppercorn sauce in my cupboard (sad) so want to whip something up ... have hardly any ingredients though so will need it to be abit... tailored. What is a basic recipe sauce I can whack over the steak? Thanks! smile

What about some garlic or herb butter instead of a sauce?

I have just made a white sauce type thing with piri piri, garlic, parsley and oregano. The lid fell off the garlic granules though blushshock Whoops.

Lovely smile

To make a garlic/herb butter, get a good chunk of butter (soft) and then mix your chosen flavouring in. Put it on cling film, roll it into a sausage and then chill it. Chop off a small chunk when it's hard, and let it melt over your cooked steak.

You could make a blue cheese sauce if you have any in the fridge.

Blue cheese, creme fraiche or cream and port. Delicious!!

Add creme fraise and wholegrain mustard to the pan juices. This makes an outstanding sauce.

Slice & fry some mushrooms, season & add a little cream. If you've got any, flambé the mushrooms with some brandy before adding the cream.
