Yes your right , i do like the wine/garlic idea
I did it for the first time a couple of weeks ago (Hubby had been working in Scotland and brought some back)
I had googled how to cook , but all i found was cook simlar to a fillet (rare) So i pan fried for few minuites either side .....Then cheated opening a packet
Do you know a good recipe for a sauce that would go nicely with the steak
(Hubby had been working in Scotland and brought some back)
we call poaching that !
As for a sauce ?...again for me I like onions.... so...
couple of onions really finely sliced then fried off on a low heat for a long time until they are almost a sticky brown sauce in themselves
Turn the heat up
then add some garlic (a good few cloves for my liking) finely chopped, some freshly cracked black pepper, celery salt if you can find any (which even my local source has stopped !) tsp of mustard powder (or mustard), a tsp of sugar and a couple of tablespoons of plain flour.. mix up into a paste (the flour should do this to it) keep cooking and stirring... then add a good dash of balsamic vinegar and top up with redwine and some beef stock if you like.... lower the heat and cook out until nice and thick....
or there abouts...

rub meat both sides wit oil, what ever you use for cooking.
season meat both sides with salt and pepper.
dip meat in Worcester sauce both sides.
grill meat 2mins maximum both sides
meat is now sealed - always important to do this.
preheat oven to 190 degrees
steak in oven for................
2 mins rare
4 mins med
6-8 mins well done
always best to leave meat undercooked as it continues to cook as you allow it to rest.
whilst meat is resting
make up some very thick gravy - similar consistency to that c**p you get at kfc.
now in a frying pan pour in some white wine (enough to cover base)
add some finely copped onion
salt and pepper
teaspoon of fresh garlic
few tarragon leaves
small pinch star anise powder (optional)
teaspoon of ground mustard seeds or colemans will do
now add the gravy mix
now add a small amount cream
now add stak and turn it only once giving it 1 min each side

OK, this is quite a long job, but well worth the trouble.

This is from a Kenya cookbook. there we used wildebeest, impala, kongoni etc, but im sure it will be good with any good piece of meat.
