Steak Balsamico With Mushrooms

We used flat-iron steaks for this recipe, but boneless chuck-eye steak, a distant cousin of the rib-eye, is an equally tender and inexpensive choice. Both cuts are best cooked medium to medium rare.

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings
  • Cook time:19 Minutes
  • Prep time:10 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-oz.) flat-iron steaks (about 1 1/4 inches thick)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (8-oz.) package sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

Preparation

1. Rub steaks with 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Cook steaks in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Transfer steaks to a serving platter, and keep warm.

2. Add garlic to skillet; sauté 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add mushrooms and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper to skillet; sauté 3 minutes. Stir in vinegar; cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Spoon mushroom mixture over steaks, and serve immediately.

Pork Balsamico With Mushrooms: Substitute 2 lb. pork tenderloin, cut in 1/2-inch-thick slices, for steaks. Proceed with recipe as directed.
