L'entrecote, Steak With Mustard Sauce

"15/4/10 - Finally got around to trying this but served the sauce over some porterhouse steak...the recipe as is was a little tart for me so I ended up adding a splash of cream to the sauce to mellow the flavours, which worked a treat...hubby was delighted with his steak dinner."

  1. Very tasty! I had no tarragon, so used rosemary instead. It turned out great. I served it with sirloin steak, as that is what I had already bought.
  2. We live in Quebec and have eaten at L'Entrecote many times. This is exactly how the sauce and steak taste in the restaurant. I've used this sauce several times even without making the steak. A good deep red wine accompanies this wonderfully - like Merlot or Brouilly. This is one of my favorite meals - thank you!
  3. The flavour of the sauce is a nice blend. I used it to pour over some fillet steaks as I didn't have anything else in the freezer. I will make again using a larger piece of rump and do as the recipe says :) A "keeper" for me.


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
