Steak with a mushroom sauce

Tonight I decided I was craving steak and we didn’t have any sauce for it in my grandfather’s house, so I decided to create my own with some ingredients I found in the fridge, the result was amazing so here is the recipe :D

Mushroom Sauce:
Chop up mushrooms, onions and cherry tomatoes, add olive oil into a frying pan and fry until soft. Add some salt, ground pepper and ground mixed herbs and stir. Next, add some lemon juice and white grape juice. When some of the liquid evaporates, stir in some single cream and stir for a few minutes. Take off the heat and put ontop of your meat. I used steak but you could use this on chicken… it tastes amazing!

Put into a frying pan with olive oil, season the steaks on both sides with salt, pepper and dried mixed herbs for taste. Fry on one side for 3-4 minutes, turn over for an additional 2 minutes for a medium steak… slightly longer is you like it well done.

Side Salad in a Parmigiano-Reggiano and Herb Sauce:
Fresh Salad, I used watercress, spinach and rocket leaves (but could use any lettuce variety), cucumbers, cherry tomatoes. The dressing was made using 1 cup mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of dried herbs, 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese and Salt & Pepper which was all mixed together then drizzled on the salad.

Finished Product:
It was yummy, I wish I had more *drool*

This is my grandfather’s favourite ice cream ever and I’ve been eating it since I was a little kid. It’s ultra creamy and great quality! I put 2 scoops into a bowl along with chopped strawberries which were spinkled with some sugar to make sweeter.

& there you go, that is all currently in my tummy and I wish there was more :(
