Beef in Red Wine Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

50 g/2 oz/0.25 cup butter or margarine

2 onions, finely chopped
150 ml/0.25 pt red wine
60 ml/4 tbsp water
5 ml/1 tsp dried thyme
2 bay leaves
4 sirloin steaks

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method :

Melt half the butter or margarine and fry (saute) the onions until soft. Stir in the wine, water, thyme and bay leaves and simmer until the liquid has reduced by half. Melt the remaining butter or margarine in a separate pan and fry the steaks for a few minutes until browned on both sides. Add the brandy and cook for 4 minutes or until the steak is cooked to your liking. Transfer the steaks to a warm serving plate and season to taste. Pour the wine sauce into the pan in which you cooked the meat, stirring well to mix in the meat juices. Stir in the cream and heat through, then pour over the steaks and serve sprinkled with the parsley.
