  • 2 beef steaks (about 250 grams (8 3/4 ounces))
  • Ham slices (about 50 grams (1 3/4 ounces))
  • A drizzle of olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 50 ml (1/4 cup) white wine
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • Pepper (to taste)
  • Salt (to taste)


  1. Season the steaks with a little salt and pepper. Cut the ham slices into thin strips.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Fry the ham strips on both sides over medium-low heat until they turn slightly golden, about 3 to 4 minutes. When they are fried, place them on a dish with absorbent paper and set aside.
  3. Add the steaks to the skillet and fry them on both sides over medium-low heat for about 7 to 8 minutes. Remove the steaks from the frying pan and set aside on a plate.
  4. Add the white wine, bay leaf, the unpeeled crushed garlic and the mustard to the skillet and cook over medium-low heat about 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Turn off the heat, place the ham strips over the steaks and drizzle with the sauce. Serve with french fries cut into slices.
