How To Make sirloins a la girardi

  • 1
    Heat 1/3 cup of clarified butter in a skillet. Salt and pepper the steaks as desired. Saute the steaks in clarified butter over medium-high heat until brown on the outside and medium-rare inside. Remove and set aside on a covered plate.
  • 2
    Degrease the skillet by wiping it out with a paper towel. Add 2 tablespoons clarified butter, and saute the smoked ham for 2 to 3 minutes over medium high heat.
  • 3
    Add the onions and saute until golden.
  • 4
    Add the mushrooms and saute 4 to 5 minutes.
  • 5
    Add the white wine and reduce almost all of the liquid. Add the bay leaf, cream, and stock, and reduce to a sauce consistency.
  • 6
    Swirl in the butter and whisk in the mustard. Do not allow the sauce to boil again or the mustard will have a bitter taste.
  • 7
    Stir in the parsley, any meat juice from the covered plate, the capers, and salt and pepper to taste. Remove the bay leaf.
  • 8
    Place the meat on 6 warm plates, topped with the sauce. Garnish with sour cream piped through a pastry bag if desired.
