    Fillet Steak with Port and Stilton Sauce

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 4 fillet steaks, about 200g each
    • Salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 25g butter
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • Sauce
    • 25g butter
    • 25g plain flour
    • 75g Stilton, crumbled
    • 200ml milk
    • 50ml port


    1. To make the sauce, melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat. Add the flour and stir to form a smooth paste, then add the crumbled Stilton and stir until melted and smooth. Now gradually stir in the milk and port. Bring the mixture to the boil, whisking all the time. Then reduce the heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes, by which point the sauce should have a smooth and creamy finish. Season well with black pepper (Stilton is already pretty salty). Keep the sauce warm while you prepare the steaks, placing a piece of clingfilm on the surface to stop a skin forming.
    2. Season the steaks with pepper. Melt the butter and oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the steaks and brown them on both sides. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for a further 3-5 minutes each side, according to taste. Transfer to a plate and keep them warm while they rest for 3-4 minutes. Season with salt.
    3. Serve the steaks and sauce with sautéed potatoes and seasonal veg.
