Easy steak Diane recipe
A true Diane sauce has lots of ingredients and takes some time and effort to make well. This quick three-ingredient version is so easy and delicious, and will add a touch of retro luxury to your weeknight steaks.
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, finely crushed
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 cup (125ml) pouring cream
- 2 x 200g sirloin or scotch fillet steaks
Heat oil over gentle heat in a small saucepan. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute, being careful not to let it colour. Add Worcestershire sauce and cook for a further 2 minutes until garlic is soft. Add cream, bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 6-8 minutes, until the cream has reduced and thickened. Set aside.
Heat a grill or fry pan over high heat. Season steaks well and cook for 4 minutes on each side (for medium cooked). Remove to a plate and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes.
Serve steaks with roasted potatoes, steamed green vegetables and the warm Diane sauce.
- Make sure your pan is very well heated before starting to cook the steak.
- Naturally, cook for less time if you prefer rare steak, more if you prefer well done.
