Top skillet-cooked sirloin steaks with a rich red wine and mushroom sauce for an easy, elegant weeknight dinner. Serve with sautéed haricots verts and mashed potatoes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sprinkle steaks evenly with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Add steaks to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from pan; keep warm.

Step 2

Add mushrooms to pan; cook 5 minutes or until tender and beginning to brown, stirring frequently. Combine wine, 1/2 cup water, flour, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon salt; stir well with a whisk. Add wine mixture to pan; bring to a boil. Cook 2 minutes or until thick; stir constantly. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Prepare potatoes according to package directions. Stir in chives and garlic powder. Place 3/4 cup potatoes on each of 4 plates. Top each with 1 steak and about 1/4 cup mushroom sauce.

Thought it was bland. Not one of my favorites. I love 99 percent of CL's recipes, but I won't make it again.

This recipe was excellent and really easy. I added some dijon mustard to the wine sauce to add more depth of flavor. The trick with the sirloin steak is to be sure not to overcook it. I did 3 minutes on each side and then let it rest with the sauce on top and it was perfect. Will definitely make this steak recipe again!

nothing special...but then again we make a different version of steak and mushrooms and this one seemed very bland next to it. def good for people starting out cooking :) i felt it needed more flavors. i added garlic after a taste and it made it better but not in the running. :)

Delicious! I cooked a whole 1-pound top sirloin steak and made my own garlic/chive mashed potatoes using fresh garlic. My mouth waters just remembering how good it was!

Truly OUTSTANDING. Quick and easy...great Fall/Winter meal because you make it in a skillet. My wonderful boyfriend made this for me in his electric skillet. PERFECTION. Served it with roasted garlic and shallot mashed poatoes and a nice baby greens salad. Delicious! It's in our favorites!
