This only takes 4 cloves Lucky but you could always add more Smile It's an old Women's Weekly recipe that worked for me - haven't made it for yonks.

60 g unsalted butter
2 tabs olive oil
750 g fillet steak, finely sliced
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tabs Worcestershire
2 tabs brandy
300 ml cream
cup finely chopped parsley

Heat butter and oil, add steak and cook over moderately high heat 2 mins on each side, without overcrowding.
Remove and set aside and cook any remaining steak.
Add garlic and cook, stirring, 1 min. ( Add a little extra butter if necessary. )
Add sauce and brandy and stir with wooden spoon, scraping up any sediment in pan.
Add cream and stir to combine.
Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 4 5 mins.
Return steaks to pan with parsley and cook 1 2 mins until heated through.

I think it's an essential ingredient for the classic recipe but who says you have to cook it the classic way - try apple juice - brandy is way too expensive.

I think you can buy a brandy extract like vanilla essence too but haven't a clue where I'm sorry. Check your supermarket - it should be with the vanilla etc if they have it. Or a deli might know.

Let us know how you go with it Lucky.

Cooking Time

30 minutes
Ingredients (serves 4)

* 4 (about 170g each) sebago potatoes, peeled
* 21/2 tbs olive oil
* 150g button mushrooms, thinly sliced
* 1/4 cup loosely packed chopped fresh continental parsley
* Salt & freshly ground black pepper
* 4 (about 140g each) beef rump centre steaks
* 2 garlic cloves, crushed
* 25g butter
* 80ml (1/3 cup) Worcestershire sauce
* 80ml (1/3 cup) thickened cream

Method

1. Preheat oven to 240C. Cut potatoes crossways at 2mm intervals (don't cut all the way through). Place on a baking tray and brush with 2 tsp of oil. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden.
2. Meanwhile, combine the mushrooms, half the parsley and 2 tbs of the oil in a bowl. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
3. Place steaks between plastic wrap. Use a meat mallet to pound until 5mm thick. Spread each side with crushed garlic.
4. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add steaks and Worcestershire sauce and cook for 2 minutes each side or to your liking. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Add cream to the pan and boil for 2-3 minutes or until it thickens.
5. Drizzle steaks with sauce and sprinkle with remaining parsley.

It's one of those classic dishes that everyone likes Lucky - quite easy too isn't it - I haven't made it for so long - don't know why - but I think I might invest in a bottle of the hard stuff again Laughing - nothing beats a good old fashioned meal sometimes.

Glad you enjoyed it Smile

Thee - brandy and dry is the go - knocks me out quicker than wine though Very Happy
