Steak and Diane

I made this sauce last night and served with with steak (of course!). Stuart calls it Steak and Diane, but I don’t think he knows about Jack. Serves 2.


  • 2 pieces quality steak
  • 1 cup red wine
  • a few sprigs of fresh thyme and rosemary
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 8 button mushrooms
  • brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cornflour, mixed with 1/2 cup water
  • salt and pepper


  1. I marinated the steak in the wine, herbs and garlic for about an hour. While the steak is marinating, cook the mushrooms in a small pan until tender and set aside.
  2. When the steak is on the bbq, pour the marinade into the saucepan with the mushrooms and bring it to the boil. Add the cornflour, a good pinch of brown sugar and plenty of salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes, until the sauce has thickened slightly.
  3. Serve with steak, mashed potato and steamed vegetables.
