Turn the oven to its lowest heat and place two plates in it.

Steak being fried Add 1 tablespoon of the oil to the pan and heat to a medium heat. Add the steaks and fry for the times shown below depending on how you well done you like your steak.

When you first add the steak to the pan (and when you turn it) press the steak down into the base of the pan for 20 seconds or so. This will seal the juices in the steak.

Cooking times vary according to how you like your steak. Below we list the cooking times for rare, medium and well done steak which is 2cm thick.

Rare 2 minutes then turn the steak and cook for 1½ minutes
Medium 3 minutes then turn the steak and cook for 2½ minutes
Well done 4 minutes then turn the steak and cook for 3½ minutes

Frying mushrooms When the steaks are cooked, turn off the oven, place the steaks on the warmed plate and put them in the oven to "rest" and still keep warm.

Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan then add the mushrooms. Fry them for four minutes stirring and turning them frequently.


  
Add the crème fraîche to the pan and crumble in the stilton.

Stir frequently until the stilton has melted and the sauce is creamy without any lumps. This will take between one or two minutes.


  
Steak with stilton and mushroom sauce Remove the steaks from the oven, place on the plates and pour over the stilton and mushroom sauce.

We kept our meal very simple by serving it with peas and oven roast potatoes. Some baked (in the oven with the potatoes) tomatoes would also add a splash of colour and taste.
