Steak with Mushroom Merlot Sauce Recipe
This steak recipe goes very well with merlot wine - Use some for the sauce, and the rest for your glass!
2 10oz ribeye steaks
2 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 Tbsp butter
6oz shiitake mushrooms
3/4 cup merlot
1 Tbsp thyme
First, salt and pepper steaks on both sides. Heat the vegetable oil to medium high, and then cook steaks for about 3 minutes per side.
Put the steaks on a plate but keep the oil in the pan. Put the butter in the pan, along with the wine, chopped up mushrooms and chopped up shallots and reduce for 5-10 minutes. Pour this sauce over the steaks and serve.
