Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Mushroom Sauce

Yields4 ServingsPrep Time15 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time30 mins

 2 heads cauliflower
 30g butter
 1/3 cup olive oil
 1 large brown onion, finely chopped
 200g Cup Mushrooms, trimmed, quartered
 200g Swiss Brown Mushrooms, trimmed, quartered
 2 tbs plain flour
 1½ cups beef stock
 2/3 cup thickened cream
 1 tsp Dijon mustard
 2 tbs chopped flat-leaf parsley

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Turn the cauliflower upside down with the stalk facing up. Carefully cut through the stalk at one end, then slice 2 large steaks out of the cauliflower head about 2cm-thick. Slice any larger florets into steaks.


In 2 batches, heat 1 tbs oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides. Cook the steaks for 5 minutes, turning, until golden. Transfer to a large tray lined with baking paper with any remaining florets. Roast the steaks in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden and cooked through.


Meanwhile, heat the butter and remaining oil together in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until soft.


Add mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes, or until softened. Sprinkle over flour. Cook, stirring for 1 minute.


Add stock, stirring constantly. Bring to boil. Simmer, uncovered over a medium-low heat, for 5 minutes. Stir in cream and mustard.


Simmer, stirring occasionally, for a further 8-10 minutes, or until thickened slightly. Stir in parsley. Season.


Serve the cauliflower with the mushroom sauce.
