T-Bone with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce- A cure for Bok blues


This weekend we were again crushed by the “Above the law McCaw’s men” but a new star was born as Louis Oosthuizen won the British Open at St Andrew’s and Jordy Smith become the world #1 surfer.

After the rugby I lit up my fire and contemplated of what happened to the Boks.

I was frustrated that we were outplayed and out reffed and when teams are evenly matched it doesn’t help if all the 50-50 calls go to the home side. This and the fact that you are carded then warned and Richie gets a dozen warnings, was leaving a bad taste in my mouth.

But then, in the middle of the winter on a lovely sunny day,  I threw some T-Bones on the coals and enjoyed a lovely braai with some of our friends. This eased the pain and cured my Bok blues and the steaks were fantastic.

So , although we were beaten in the rugby, our weather, people and braais makes it fantastic to be a South African and the Boks will rise again and we have a new major champion in Louis Oosthuizen.

Here is the T-Bone with Red wine mushroom sauce recipe

– 2 t-bone steaks
– 1 tbsp olive oil
– 1 tbsp flour
– 12 mushrooms sliced
– 1/4 cup red wine
– 1 clove garlic minced
– 1 tsp salt
– 1 tsp pepper
– 1 tsp celery salt

Braai the T-Bone steaks your way.

Finish the sauce before you braai and heat it up just as the steaks are ready.  

The sauce:

Heat the olive oil in a skillet to medium high heat. 

Add to the skillet the mushrooms, mushrooms, garlic, salt, pepper, celery salt, and red wine.  Add the flour to the mixture to thicken and serve the t-bone steaks immediately with the sauce on top.
