Steak with a Red Wine Reduction and Mushrooms

This a simple steak recipe.  I do not have a grill so I sear the steak in a pan and then put it under the broiler.  Overall this only takes about 15-20 minutes to make.

You will need:
Steak (I used Sirloin)
2 tablespoons Butter
1/2 cup Red Wine
1/4 cup Beef Broth
Salt and pepper

Step 1:
Generously salt and pepper your steak.

Step 2:
Turn your oven on to broil. Then heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a frying pan over high heat. Once the pan is hot add the steak. Sear each side for about 2-3 minutes. Then put the steak on a baking sheet and into the oven. Cook for 5-15 minutes more depending on how well done you like your steak and how thick your steak is.

Step 3:
Add the butter to the same pan you used to sear the steak.  Then add the mushrooms and saute until browned.  Then add the wine and broth to the mushrooms.  Keep over medium to high heat so that the sauce bubbles steadily and reduces.

Step 4:
Once the steak is cooked remove it from the oven and let it sit for 2 minutes.  This will lock the juices into the steak.  Pour the sauce and mushrooms over the steak and enjoy!
