250 calories per serving 


2 tbsp butter, unsalted   28 g
4 leaves fresh sage   1 g
1 sprig rosemary, fresh   5 g
1 clove garlic, finely chopped    
260 g beef strip loin, or rib eye    
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    
1 1/2 tbsp cream 15%   23 mL
1 tsp Dijon mustard   5 mL

Before you start

Preheat the oven to the lowest temperature to keep the steaks and the plates warm while cooking the sauce.


  1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the sage leaves and sprigs of rosemary. Finely chop the garlic and add it to the saucepan. Let infuse a few minutes, until the butter becomes perfumed with the herbs aroma, paying attention not to let it burn. Filter the mixture using a sieve, pressing the solids to extract the butter. Put the perfumed butter in a skillet.
  2. Heat the butter over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and sear them 1-2 min per side, add salt and pepper, then remove the steaks from the skillet and set them aside on a warmed plate in the oven.
  3. In a small bowl, mix well the cream and mustard. Pour it into the skillet, then cook 1 min over medium heat with stirring using a wooden spoon or spatula to scrape the bottom of the skillet. Put the steaks back into the skillet and cook 1-2 more min, turning them once.
  4. Transfer the steaks to the warmed plates, spoon the sauce over the top, and serve.
