This recipe is a special one in our family. I've been cooking this dish for about 15years and it always comes out when we want something special. I dont know whether its the tender beef or the tanginess of the sauce, its delicious. I serve this dish with mash potato, but you can serve it with chips or even a salad.
2 Beef Filets
4 Rashes Steaky Bacon
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 Onion, diced
1 teaspoon Garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
3 Tablespoons Tomato Sauce
150ml Thickened (cooking) cream
Mash Potato to serve
Preheat oven to 180'c.
In a large (oven-proof) frying pan heat the oil. Wrap bacon around steak and pin with toothpicks. Season steak with salt and pepper on both sides. Once oil is hot, add steak. Cook until seared one one side then flip and add butter. Baste with butter and cook another 3 minutes, making sure all sides are seared.. Transfer frying pan to the oven and cook until cooked to your liking, about 5 minutes for medium. Whilst steak is cooking prepare your sauce.
To a small saucepan sweat off onion and garlic in oil. Add Worcestershire sauce and tomato sauce and bring to the boil. Turn heat down and add cream. Stir until thickened.
Serve steak on top of mash potatoes and pour over sauce.
