  • Beef rump steak, lean, raw, 300 g, 2 x 150g pieces
  • Pepper, any type, ground, 3 teaspoon(s)
  • Olive oil, extra virgin, 2 teaspoon(s)
  • Mushrooms, 200 g, e.g. mixed swiss brown, button & shiitake, sliced
  • Balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon(s)
  • Castor sugar, granulated, 1 pinch(s)
  • Beef liquid stock, salt-reduced, ½ cup(s)
  • Cornflour, 1 teaspoon(s)
  • Parsley, 2 tablespoon(s), chopped
  • Broccolini, fresh, 1 bunch(es)
  • Snowpeas, 1¼ cup(s), or sugar snap peas, topped

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C fan-forced. Season steaks evenly with pepper evenly, turning to coat both sides. Heat half the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add steaks to hot pan, sear each side for 30 to 40 seconds. Remove steaks, place in a roasting pan then into the oven for 3 to 4 minutes for medium, or until cooked to your liking. Remove from oven, cover loosely with foil and allow to stand for 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, add remaining oil and mushrooms to the frying pan. Sauté for 3 minutes. Add vinegar and sugar, cook for 1 minute. Combine 1 tablespoon of stock and cornflour into a smooth paste. Stir in the remaining stock. Add to the mushrooms and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer for 1 to 2 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Remove from the heat. Stir in the parsley. Steam or microwave the broccolini and snowpeas until bright green and tender. Place steak onto serving plates. Spoon over the mushroom sauce and serve with broccolini and snowpeas.
