Ingredients

  • 2 lean sirloin, rump or rib-eye steaks
  • 30ml/2tbsp olive oil
  • 50g/2oz mushrooms, cleaned and finely chopped
  • 150g/5oz soft cheese with garlic and herbs
  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper

Method

  1. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick pan and cook the mushrooms for 3-4 minutes, until soft. Drain and set aside to cool.
  2. Place the steaks on a chopping board. Using a sharp knife make a ‘pocket’ cut, taking care not to cut through all the steaks. In a small bowl mix together cooled mushrooms and soft cheese with garlic and herbs. Spread the mixture evenly inside each pocket.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in the pan and cook the steaks according to your preference.
  4. Serve the steaks with any remaining soft cheese, chunky chips and mixed salad leaves.
