Steak is always a good choice.  You’ll find this one to be a keeper.  I did.

Seared Sirloin with Red Wine and Mushrooms     sirloin and red wine mushrooms


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 six-ounce steaks (trimmed sirloin or petite fillets)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 pound white or cremini mushrooms, cleaned, stems removed and sliced
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 cup low-sodium beef stock
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary


Preheat the oven to 400°F.

On the stove, heat the oil in a large cast-iron skillet on high heat.  Season the steaks with salt and plenty of fresh cracked black pepper and add them to the skillet.  Sear for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until a deep brown crust develops.

Transfer them to the oven to finish cooking.  (6 to 8 minutes for medium rare)  Remove the pan from the oven and transfer the steaks to a cutting board to rest.

Using a pot holder, place the pan back on the stove over medium heat.  Add the shallots, garlic, and mushrooms.  Cook until the mushrooms begin to caramelize, 3 to 4 minutes.  Add the red wine and the stock, scraping the bottom of the pan with a spoon.  Cook until the liquid has reduced by half, 2 to 3 more minutes.  Stir in the rosemary.

To serve, divide the steaks among four plates, top with mushrooms and spoon sauce over all.  Makes 4 servings.
