Bantry Bay Beef


– 8oz steak
– couple of mushrooms
– sprinkling of rock salt and black pepper
– shot of whiskey or brandy
– medium onion
– sprig of parsley or watercress
– tomatoes
– cream
– wine


Slice the steak and mushrooms and add to a hot pan to which you have added a drop of olive oil. Sprinkle on rock salt and black pepper for seasoning.

Cook until steak is medium rare or to taste.

Flame with a shot of whiskey or brandy. This helps to seal in the flavour.

Mix wine and about a quarter of a small pot of double cream. Add to the hot pan.

Cook until cream has started to thicken.

Serve with a sprig of parsley or watercress, tomatoes and colcannon potatoes.

Many thanks to Peter O’Connor of O’Connor’s Secret Garden Bistro for this dish which he demonstrated at the Alton Food Festival.
