For the sauce, heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over a moderate to high heat. Add the onions, pepper, mushrooms, thyme and garlic, then cook until soft and lightly browned
  • 1 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 2 onions
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 250g of button mushrooms
  • 1/4 bunch of thyme
  • 1 garlic clove

Add the brandy, red wine and the tied bunch of tarragon and reduce to a syrup. Add the chicken stock and simmer gently to reduce by half

  • 200ml of red wine

Remove the thyme and tarragon, mix in the crème fraiche and the chopped tarragon leaves. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary

  • 1/4 bunch of tarragon

For the potatoes, preheat the oven to 220°C/Gas mark 7. Put all the ingredients, thyme, salt and paprika into a roasting tin, making sure the potatoes are well coated in oil, and roast in the oven for 45 minutes or until golden

  • 1/2 bunch of thyme

  • 2kg sirloin of beef
  • 2 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp salt

Add the butter, garlic and herbs and allow the butter to foam. Spoon it over the meat to baste, turning often, for 5 minutes. Put the entire frying pan into the oven and turn the sirloin over every 5 minutes, basting with the butter
  • 50g of unsalted butter
  • 1 bulb of garlic
  • 1/4 bunch of thyme
  • 1/4 bunch of rosemary

Remove after 15 minutes for rare, 22 minutes for medium and 30 minutes for well done. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before carving
