Ingredients:

    For the fillet steaks

    • 2 x 225g/8oz beef fillet steaks
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 3 tbsp olive oil

    • 115g/4oz morel mushrooms, cleaned
    • 2 shallots, peeled and finely chopped

    4. Pour the mushroom and red wine sauce over the steaks and serve.
