Steak with mushroom and cheese brocolli

This is the final product....

What do you need?
1 pack of tenderloin (2 pieces – palm sized)
Coarse pepper (I use Masterfood – Seasoned Pepper)

How to do it?
Marinate beef with pepper and salt for at least half an hour in the fridge.
Heat pan, melt butter
Wait for butter to melt 50%, add beef (the butter will continue to melt so it is ok)
Don’t wait for butter to melt totally before adding meat or else the butter will burn.
Fry until brown on both sides
Depending on how cooked you like your beef to be, should take 3-4 mins for medium well done.

What do you need?

1 pack of shitake mushroom (5-6 medium sized), wash, sliced
1 onion
Frozen minced garlic in oil
Shao Xing wine (approx 2 tbsp)

How to do it?

Wait for oil to melt and fry garlic until brown and fragrant.
Add onion with pinch of salt. Fry till soft and transparent, slightly brown
Add mushroom, fry till soft for 2 -3 mins
Generously splash shao xing wine and stir until dry
Add salt and pepper to taste

Cheese Broccoli

What do you need?
1 medium sized broccoli
1 packet of Cauliflower Supreme with Cheese (McCormick)

How to do it?

Add broccoli, cook for 2-3 mins
Add button mushroom, cook for another 1-2 mins
Remove broccoli and mushroom from water, leave on plate
