  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped shallots (about 3 medium)

  2. 2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Remove steak from bag, reserving marinade. Add steak to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to medium; cook an additional 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove steak from pan; cover and keep warm.
