Yield
4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces steak and 1/4 cup sauce)

If you don't have dried Italian seasoning on hand, use 1/8 teaspoon dried basil and 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano. You can also substitute 1 teaspoon dried rosemary for the fresh. Prepare marinade up to a day in advance, and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill or broiler.

Step 2

Combine first 7 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add steak; seal bag. Marinate in refrigerator 20 minutes, turning once. Remove steak from bag, reserving marinade.

Step 3

Place steak on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 6 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices; keep warm.

Step 4

While steak cooks, combine reserved marinade, tomato paste, and mustard in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring well with a whisk. Bring to a boil, and cook until reduced to 1 cup (about 7 minutes). Serve the sauce with steak.

This recipe was delicious, easy, and flavorful. Despite its simplicity, it would be a standout for company. I like strong flavors so used more herbs: 3/4 tsp. each dried basil and oregano, plus the 1 tsp. dried rosemary. Served with roasted potatoes and a spinach salad, and drank more wine with dinner.

When I saw this recipe with 5 stars, I was so eager to try it. So disappointed. The taste of the steak was so bland. The sauce was tasteless. When I put more salt and pepper, it was just tasted salt water. The whole recipe was very disappointed.

Very good, but my sauce was a little bright. Definitely would make again, but may try a different wine.

Really yummy and super easy. May have benefited from a little more marinade time but that's not a complaint.

This made a great dinner. I marinated the steak for about 3hrs. I think less time may've been fine, but I happened to have the time to spare. When I cook this again, I'll leave the steak on the grill for a little extra time. Six minutes per side was a little rarer than I prefer, but it was tasty and tender nonetheless. The sauce is incredible -- as is the potato recipe that accompanies this recipe in the same issue.

I marinated the meat for two hours and it was very flavorful and tender. The sauce however, needed a lot of help. It was extremely bright. I added 1 teaspoon of honey, then 2 teapsoons of backstrap molasses and it still was slightly bright. I also added a few shots of tabasco sauce and it turned out OK in the end.

This recipe is in my regular rotation as we adore the sauce. If I make this in the winter, I broil the steak instead of grilling it. It goes very well with roasted potato wedges (toss with olive oil, kosher salt & pepper) & steamed broccoli (or grilled zucchini in the summer).
