Griddled steak with peppercorn sauce

4 tsp mustard powder
4 fillet steaks
Low calorie cooking spray

For the sauce
1 onion
2 garlic cloves
300g chicken stock
1 tbsp crushed black peppercorns
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
200g fat-free natural fromage frais

Make sure your steaks are at room temperature, pat them dry with kitchen towel. Sprinkle the mustard powder over the steaks and rub onto the surface. Spray with low calorie cooking spray, cover and set aside.
To make the sauce: chop the onion and crush the garlic; place in a pan with the stock and bring to the boil. reduce the heat, add the peppercorns and Worcestershire sauce and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the sauce is reduced and slightly thickened. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the fromage frais. Keep the sauce warm until ready to serve (do not boil at any point or the sauce will curdle). (The sauce is Free on all plans).
Meanwhile, place the steaks on a really hot griddle pan and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or to your liking.
Serve the steak with the peppercorn sauce and lots of steamed vegetables, or Slimming World chips.
Tip: To make this look really professional, cut the fillet steak on the diagonal and arrange on the plate before pouring on the sauce.

Throwing a party? Why not serve the steak cut into bite-sized pieces on skewers, with the sauce in a bowl for your guests to dip into?
