Beef steaks served on a leek & mushroom ragu, topped with sun-dried tomato butter and served with crusty bread to mop up the delicious sauces!

Gluten friendly option - bread is replaced with GF bread (loaf)
1. Set oven to 180°C.
Heat a large pan with 2 tbsp oil from the sun-dried tomato jar over medium heat. Slice and add leek and celery, sauté for 3 minutes, or until softened.

2. Slice zucchini and mushrooms, crush garlic and add to pan with thyme. Finely chop sun-dried tomatoes and add half into the pan (reserve remaining). Stir in 1/2 tsp cornflour, 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar and 1 1/2 cup water. Simmer for 10 minutes.

3. Chop chives and combine 2 tbsp with reserved sun-dried tomatoes and 75g butter. Season with salt.

4. Halve steaks, rub with oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook in a heated, large frypan over medium-high heat for 3 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking.

5. Warm bread rolls in the oven for 3-4 minutes.

6. Divide ragu between plates. Top with steaks, sun-dried tomato butter and any remaining chives. Serve with a side of sliced crusty bread and mixed leaves.

Grate butter to soften quickly. 
If you are short on time, add the whole jar of sun-dried tomatoes to the ragu and serve rolls with plain butter. Top with chopped chives.
