This quick but posh dinner for two goes nicely with packaged refrigerated mashed potatoes and bagged salad greens with bottled dressing.
1/2 cup less-sodium beef broth
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 (4-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks
1 cup presliced mushrooms
1/2 cup sweet Marsala
How to Make It
Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat.
Combine first 7 ingredients in a bowl.
Coat pan with cooking spray. Add steaks to pan; cook 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove steaks from pan. Add mushrooms to pan, and cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove mushrooms from pan. Remove pan from heat; add Marsala, scraping the pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat to medium. Return pan to heat. Add broth mixture to pan; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Stir in mushrooms.
Making this again for Valentine's Day. It's simple, elegant and delicious. Great entree for company and easy to double. I use grass fed beef-melt in your mouth goodness. Served with roasted potatoes with rosemary and garlic and green beans. Could not be easier!
This is the best marsala I've made! Served it with baked sweet potatoes and was oh so delicious. I would make it every night if I could afford it (the filet)! I will definitely be making it many times more for special occasions. :) Oh yes and as a previous reviewer suggested, I added the sugar to a nonsweet marsala and turned out great!
I have made this a couple of times and we love it! So yummy. I do double the 7 incredients for more sauce and put it over white rice. I also add a teaspoon of sugar when the Marsala is not a sweet one.
Valentine's 2012. Very good. Teenager tried to lick the plate. So much for my parenting skills. Served with steamed asparagus with a little lemon and pepper, and fresh strawberries with slivers of blue cheese brie. Chocolate covered pretzels for dessert.
This was a very tasty and easy meal to prepare. As others have noted, you may have to adjust cooking time based upon the thickness of the steaks. I would recommend serving this with mashed potatoes or rice.
Made this for Valentines..absolutely delicious. Cooked perfectly in iron skillet..may need to add time if thick steaks.Used Baby Bella mushrooms, that I sliced, and a medium sweet Marsala. I did use more mushrooms than called for.Served with French Onion Soup and mashed potatoes. Will use again and again.
