Get that meaty, hearty dish into your belly
It is true that steaks are a luxury in today's world, especially when one is a poor uni student with not much time to cook up a storm in the kitchen, ending up in living on Mi Goreng for most of the week.

However, there are times when one must make room in their busy schedule and treat themselves with some real food, that is not only delicious but also fulfilling and pleasing to a starving tummy.

This recipe is a beautiful way of getting all the nutrients you need to be healthy, active and satisfied. What makes this tasty dish even better is the fact that you can make your own mushroom sauce from scratch (and it does not take too long to cook it up)!


Scotch fillet Steak Piece

4 medium-sized pieces of beef steak (Scotch Fillet)
Lettuce (as desired)
1/2 packet of Haloumi cheese - cut up into small cubes
Salt and pepper to taste

Mushroom Sauce

10-15 mushrooms - finely sliced
2 tbsp olive oil
A handful of thyme spice - finely chopped
30g butter
1 tbsp garlic paste (alternatively, you can use 1 garlic clove - crushed)
250-300 ml thickened cream


Note: Cook the steak to your liking - rare, medium-rare, or well done. It depends on your taste.

Heat up a frying pan with olive oil sprayed over the base.
Add the pieces of steak onto the pan. Cook until golden brown. Set aside (covered).

With the mushroom sauce, line the base with a couple of drops of olive oil. Add the chopped mushrooms into a saucepan.

Add 2 more tablespoons of olive oil to ensure the mushrooms attain a caramelized glaze. Cook for about 5-8 minutes.

Follow up this process with the thyme, garlic paste/mashed up cloves and give the mixture a good stir. Continue heating the mixture on high heat till the mushrooms have softened.

Now add the thickened cream to the mixture and bring down the heat to a medium. Continue stirring till the sauce becomes thick as paste and is not runny.

Remove from heat and add the butter onto the mixture. Stir the mixture well and leave aside to cool down.

In another frying pan, place the cubes of haloumi cheese on medium heat and cook for about 1-2 minutes till they turn golden brown.
