Dijon Steak with Orange-Balsamic Sauce

Prep time 5 mins

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 steak and 3 tablespoons sauce)
Quickly searing the steak in a cast iron skillet allows the meat to retain much of its moisture, making it more tender and flavorful.

  • 1/2 cup minced green onions (about 3)
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

  • 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
