See how to cook this meal step by step



  1. 15ml vegetable oil
  2. 4 rump or porterhouse steaks (225 g each)
  3. 2 small onions, chopped finely
  4. 15ml stork margarine
  5. 120g button mushrooms, quartered
  6. 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  7. 10ml worcestershire sauce
  8. 15ml maille dijon mustard
  9. 30ml brandy
  10. 120ml water
  11. 1 x KNORR Beef Stock Pot
  12. 250ml cream
  13. 15ml parsley, chopped



  1. Remove the fat from the steaks, roll them out to make them a little thinner.
  2. Heat the oil in a large heavy based frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry steaks for 2 minutes on each side, remove from pan and set aside.
  3. In the same pan add the onion and Stork Margarine, stirring for 3 minutes over medium heat. Add mushrooms and garlic. Cook on medium heat for further 2 minutes then add Worcestershire sauce and Maille Dijon Mustard, stir well for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Turn the heat up and pour the brandy into the front edge of the pan. If using a gas stove top let the flame catch the brandy’s vapours and ignite, otherwise ignite a wooden skewer using a lighter and use this to light the brandy vapours – make sure you keep well away from the flame and there are no flammable materials nearby. Swirl slightly, then turn the heat down. Once the flames have subsided, add the water and KNORR Beef Stock Pot. Once the stock pot has melted and the sauce is hot again add the cream, stir in well over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add parsley and serve immediately.
  5. BETTER FOR YOU TIPS : Serve this delicious steak with sweet potato oven baked chips and a side of sauteed spinach for a healthier take on this classic combo. You can also choose to create a lighter tasting sauce by using 125 ml low fat milk and 125 ml cream instead of the full 250 ml cream.
