This piece of steak was sirloin and although this is expensive you do not need much of it. It is worth getting a good cut for this dish as it is cooked rare-medium.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes plus fridge time
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2 - 3
Ingredients ½ large onion
175 g button mushrooms
350 g sirloin steak
1½ tbsp oil
¾ tsp Dijon mustard
½ tsp thyme
½ large Granny Smith apple
140 g sour cream
½ tbsp lemon juice
Lettuce and French bread, to serve - optional
You can cook the meat in a pan and then slice it finely however I prefer the taste of cooking it on the barbecue. I cooked it for about 3 minutes on each side and it was quite a thick piece of steak. You want it to be pink inside.
Slice the steak into thin strips and season with some salt and pepper to taste.
Chop the onion and slice the mushrooms.
Heat the oil and fry the onion for about 5 minutes until it starts to go golden brown.
Add the mushrooms, mustard and thyme.
Cook on high heat for a minute.
Add the beef, turn off the heat and allow to cool in the fridge for about an hour.
Peel and quarter the apple and slice it thinly.
Mix it with the sour cream and lemon juice.
Line a shallow dish with lettuce if using.
Mix the beef and apple mixture and add salt and pepper if needed.
Put it on top of the lettuce and serve with toasted French bread.
I served it with corn on the cob and some raw carrots
