  • Preparation time10 minutes
  • Cooking time10 minutes


  • 15 ml vegetable oil
  • 4 x rump or Porterhouse steaks (200-225 g each)
  • 2 small onions, chopped finely
  • 15 ml Stork Margarine
  • 120 g button mushrooms, quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 10 ml Worcestershire sauce
  • 15 ml Maille Dijon Mustard
  • 30 ml brandy
  • 120 ml water
  • 1 Knorr Beef Stock Pot
  • 250 ml cream
  • 15 ml chopped parsley


  • Remove the fat from the steaks, roll them out to make them a little thinner.
  • Heat the oil in a large heavy based frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry steaks for 2 minutes on each side, remove from pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan add the onion and Stork Margarine, stirring for 3 minutes over medium heat. Add mushrooms and garlic. Cook on medium heat for further 2 minutes then add Worcestershire sauce and Maille Dijon Mustard, stir well for 1-2 minutes.
  • Turn the heat up and pour the brandy into the front edge of the pan. If using a gas stove top let the flame catch the brandy’s vapours and ignite, otherwise ignite a wooden skewer using a lighter and use this to light the brandy vapours – make sure you keep well away from the flame and there are no flammable materials nearby. Swirl slightly, then turn the heat down. Once the flames have subsided, add the water and KNORR Beef Stock Pot. Once the stock pot has melted and the sauce is hot again add the cream, stir in well over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add parsley and serve immediately.
