New York Strip Steak with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 (10 to 12-ounce) New York strip steaks, about 3/4-inch thick
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 shallot, finely chopped
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 cup dry red wine
3 tablespoons butter
Add the oil to a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Heat until the oil is very hot.
Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Add the steaks to the skillet and sear the steaks on each side for 4 minutes for medium. Remove the steaks to a plate and loosely cover with foil.
Lower the heat to medium and add the mushrooms, shallot, and thyme to the pan and sauté until the mushrooms begin to brown and soften, about 5 minutes. You may need to add a bit more oil to the pan. Add the red wine and scrap the bottom of the pan to get the browned bits.
Let the liquid reduce by half, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and swirl in 3 tablespoons butter to finish the sauce. Serve the steak with mushroom red wine sauce drizzled over the top.
Tonight I’m serving with oven roasted herb encrusted potatoes, green beans wrapped in bacon, garden salad and fruit compote.
