Ingredients

2 tsp coriander seeds 2 g
3/4 tsp peppercorns 3 g
1.1 kg beef, top sirloin
5 tsp Dijon mustard 25 mL
5 tsp butter, unsalted 22 g
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
1 1/2 onions, finely chopped 300 g
3 cups chicken broth 750 mL

3/4 tsp honey 6 g

3 tbsp whipping cream 35% 45 mL

Before you start

The beef should be brought to close to room temperature at least 1 hour before cooking.

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F.
  2. Coarsely grind the peppercorns and coriander seeds, using a pepper mill if available. Otherwise, place the spices in a plastic bag and crush them using a rolling pin. Brush the roast with the mustard, then coat it with the spices.
  3. Heat half of the butter and oil in a large ovenproof pan. Add the roast and sear it until it is brown on all sides, 8-10 min. Season with salt and pepper. Take the roast out of the pan and set it aside in a dish.
  4. Add the remaining butter and oil to the pan, then add the onion and sauté over medium heat until it is softened, about 3 min. Arrange the roast over the onion then put the pan in the middle of the oven.
  5. For rare doneness, cook the meat until a thermometer inserted in the meat reaches 48°C/118°F (about 15 min per 454 g/1 lb). Take the pan out of the oven, transfer the roast to a cutting board, cover it with an aluminum foil and let it stand 10 min.
  6. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring to a boil the broth, Port wine and honey. Cook the liquid is reduced to about 3/4 volume. Dissolve the cornstarch in 2 tablespoons of water then add the mixture to the saucepan. Stir in the cream and cook 2 min. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Slice the meat thinly across the grain. Serve the slices on the warmed plates with the onions. Top with the sauce.
