Fillet Steak with Bacon-Stuffed Mushrooms

As I enter the 8th week of my ‘yes-I-can-lose-weight-and-blog-about-cooking’ diet I suddenly realised I have been neglecting meat. Vegetable soup and the like is all very nice but it doesn’t require a great deal of tearing or chewing.

Although I made this creation a while ago it looks so good to me now (as I chew on my muesli) that I couldn’t resist any longer and so I invite you to join me in an a veritable orgy of virtual mastication.

An object of desire (try and ignore the mushroom and the green thing)…

For ‘Fillet Steak with Bacon-Stuffed Mushrooms’ you’ll need:

  • 1 expensive fillet steak

For the mushrooms

  • Mushrooms
  • Lardons
  • Béarnaise sauce
  • Spring Onions

For the caramelised onion

  • Onions
  • Sugar
  • Soy Sauce

To serve

  • Red Bell Pepper
  • French Fries
  • Horseradish Sauce

Start with the onions. Slice into rounds and then very slowly fry with oil, sugar and soy sauce:

Prepare the mushrooms. Wash them and then fry up some lardons and then arrange on top of the mushrooms. Spoon some béarnaise sauce on top of each mushroom (how many you make depends on how greedy you’re feeling). Then place in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes:

Meanwhile grill some red pepper strips coated in olive oil.

Now for the main event. Fry the steak (coated in some olive oil) on a griddle that is so hot, it’s smokin’!

Sorry that just isn’t smokin’. Let’s try that again…

That’s better! Cook for 5 mins or so on each side, depending on your preference.

Now plate up. Arrange some of the onion mixture on  a plate. Top with the steak and some red pepper rings. Serve with the mushrooms and some fries:

Wholesome goodness and at 10,000 calories, you’ll be laughing all the way to A&E!

  1. How many times can I hit the like button? I did have to look up lardons though – learn something new every day & I thank you. This looks about as good as it gets. Love the idea of the Bernaise sauce on the mushrooms although I would have made extra to pour over the steak. What calories? I don’t see any calories here. French fries on the side. I think you just made my day looking at this meal.

  2. Yeah, smokin! It’s that caveman thing. Don’t ignore meat. Contrary to the food police line, it does have nutrients hard to get elsewhere. Just watch those 10,000 kcal binges. Looks delicious topped with red pepper strips.
