Portuguese steak

Ingredients

  • 1 sirloin steak
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons clarified butter or ghee
  • 1 small clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sherry or cognac
  • ½ cup red wine
  • ½ cup beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • pinch chilli flakes
  • 1 thin slice ham
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • mixed salad leaves, to serve

Preparation method

Season the steaks with salt and pepper.

Heat the butter in a large frying pan over high heat, add the steak and cook for 30 seconds each side to seal. Remove from the pan.

Add garlic and sherry; deglaze the pan with the red wine. Add the beef stock and cook for 2-3 minutes, add the sour cream and cook for a further minute.

Return the steak to the pan, along with any of the juices and cook until done to your liking.

Place the ham into a medium frying pan and cook until crisp. Remove from the pan. Add oil and fry the egg, keeping the yolk soft.

To serve, place the steak in the centre and a fried egg on top. Place the crispy ham on the egg and pour the sauce over. Serve immediately with crisp green salad.
