One-Pan Steak, Broccoli and Shrooms

This has all the elements for an impressive candle-lit wine-lubricated date night. But somehow over text, ‘date’ translated as ‘budget’ and the whole thing accidentally became a one-pan situation. So here you go, babe. Steak in a pan.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 16 minutes
Course Dinner, Main Course
Servings 2 people


  • 1 head broccoli, cut into florets with long stems
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 scotch fillet steaks, butcher-cut 3cm thick, oiled and salted
  • 50 g butter
  • 100 g field or forest mushrooms, chopped
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 125 ml red wine
  • 250 ml single (pure) cream


  • Pan-fry the broccoli in the oil over medium–high heat for 5 minutes, until beginning to char on the edges. Set aside on a plate.
  • Pan-fry the steaks for 4 minutes each side for medium–rare. Remove and rest for 4 minutes.
  • Add the butter and mushrooms to the same pan and fry for 2 minutes until golden. Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Deglaze the pan with the wine for 1 minute, then reduce the heat to medium–low, add the cream and bring to a simmer.
  • Slice the steak and return to the pan, along with the broccoli. Gently toss to coat in the sauce (you can let the steak simmer for a bit longer here if you prefer it a bit more done).
  • Whisk straight to the table in the pan.
