Steak Maman Blanc

A foolproof steak recipe

Serves4
Preparation5 Mins
Cooking Time10 Mins

My mother has cooked this easy steak recipe since I was a child and I genuinely think it’s the best steak in the world. It relies on one very simple process: pan frying meat to create delicious juices which can then be turned into an emulsion by the addition of water. The technique works with other meats too and will be just as delicious if you follow the same method.
