Make sure you have...

Butter (unsalted) (1 Dab), 
Olive oil (1 tsp), 
Water (1 cup)


Stovetop, Pot (small), Frying pan, Knife


Yellow onion

Step 1

Peel & thinly slice the onions.

White mushrooms (whole)

Step 2

Clean & thinly slice the mushrooms.

Step 3

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onions, mushrooms, salt & pepper. Stir & cook 4-5 min until slightly softened.


Step 4

Meanwhile, boil a small pot of water (1.5 cup per person) with a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Reduce the heat to low & whisk in the polenta. Stir & cook for 2 to 3 min, until you obtain a thick & creamy texture. (Add more water to thin out the consistency if you wish!)

Butter (unsalted)

Step 5

Once the polenta has thickened, add a small piece of butter & a pinch of black pepper. Mix well & keep warm.

Flank steak

Step 6

Heat a second pan over high heat. Pat the steak dry & add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan. Add the steak. Season well with salt & pepper. Sear it undisturbed for 3-4 min on each side, over high heat, for medium-rare.

Crème fraîche
Whole grain mustard

Step 7

Once the mushrooms are cooked, stir in the cream & mustard. Mix & simmer for an additional 1 - 2 min, so the sauce thickens.

Step 8

On a plate, serve the polenta with the steak & creamy mushrooms on top. Re-season to taste & add a few sprigs of parsley, if you have any. Serve & enjoy!
