Barbecued Mushroom Duxelles with Beef Fillet
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
500g large Portobello mushrooms
250g Button mushrooms
2 shallots or 1 onion, peeled and roughly chopped
4 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
2 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only
2tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 Clean the mushrooms. Chargrill the Portobellos on the braai until char-marks appear.
2 Place Portobellos, Button mushrooms, shallots, garlic and thyme in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped – stop before it becomes a paste!
3 Place butter and olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the shallot and mushroom mixture and sauté for 10 minutes, stirring, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Season with salt and pepper.
4 Serve dollops of the duxelles on fillet steak done to your likeness on the braai.
