How do you make yours?
Lunch was two chicken sandwiches with iceberg lettuce and mayo on white bread. One of my favorite sandwiches
I use butter, really finely chopped or minced onion (depending on how lazy I'm feeling ^_^) a little white wine, a little cream, salt and peppercorns. I'm afraid I don't really know the measurements coz it's different everytime and I kind of make it up.
I'll soften the onions in the butter, add the white wine (not too much though at the beginning) and let it all simmer down.
Then I'll add the salt, peppercorns and the excess butter/oil/fluid/meat juices from the steak (while it's cooking away happily - OH likes his well done, me MR, so it's pretty easy - not so much if you want it blue or rare).
Simmer away then add the cream to thicken it up as much as you like and a splash more white wine if the taste needs it (or if I've added too much cream for my liking!)
All seasoned to taste as you go pretty much.
I guess I use a few tablespoons of peppercorns, and I always crush them pestle-and-mortar style
Hope that helps! Give it a go and let me know, I'm sure you'll do an amazing job!!
P.S. I really fancy a chicken sandwich now - yum
