    Fillet steaks with miso-mustard sauce

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes

    Serves: 2


    1 tbsp white sesame seeds
    2 x 150g beef fillet steaks
    1 tbsp English mustard powder
    3 tbsp Miso Tasty Organic White Miso Paste
    1 tbsp reduced salt soy sauce
    3 tbsp whipping cream
    1 garlic clove, finely grated
    1 tsp clear honey
    1 tsp sunflower oil
    400g pack microwaveable mashed potato
    2 x 80g packs trimmed sugar snap peas


    1.Set a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat and toast the sesame seeds, stirring regularly, for 3-4 minutes or until golden; set aside. Meanwhile, take the steaks out of their packaging, season and set aside at room temperature for 20 minutes before cooking.

    2.Meanwhile, mix the mustard powder to a paste with 1 tbsp just-boiled water, then blend with the sesame seeds, miso, soy sauce, cream, garlic, honey and 5 tbsp just-boiled water in the bowl of a small, high-powered blender until smooth.

    3.Return the frying pan to a high heat with the oil. When smoking hot, cook the steaks for 5 minutes on each side for medium rare (or longer as desired). Set aside to rest for 3-4 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the potato and sugar snap peas according to pack instructions. Return the pan (with any leftover caramelised bits and juices) to a low heat and tip in the sauce, warming it through gently and adding a splash more water to loosen if needed. Serve the steaks, potato and veg with the miso-mustard sauce spooned over.
