Method

The morels need to be soaked in 500ml water for at least 30 minutes before using.

Heat oil in a frying pan, season the steaks with salt and freshly ground black pepper and sear in the hot oil.

Cook to the degree required, preferably medium rare.

Remove the steaks from the pan and rest whilst making the sauce.

Pour off excess oil, add butter and add the chopped shallot to the pan. Sweat the shallot until soft then pour in the meat stock, white wine, morel mushrooms and the morel stock. Boil up then mix in the double cream.

Heat through allow to reduce and thicken then taste and season with salt and pepper if necessary.

Serve the steaks on warmed plates and spoon the sauce over the steaks.
