Sauced Steak ™

Need an idea for dinner.

This is a very simple yet elegant idea for steak. I've used an inexpensive cut of steak and dry red wine. Feel free to use what cut of steak and dry red wine that you like.

8 oz steaks
1  1/4 c (10 oz) dry red wine 
2 T chopped shallots
1 T Worcestershire Sauce
2 oz (1/4 c) sliced mushrooms
1/8 tsp salt (optional)
1/4 tsp pepper 

Combine steaks, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, 1 T shallots in shallow dish.  Pour 2 oz. red wine over steaks and marinate for several hours or overnight. 

Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium, place steaks and marinade in pan.

Cook on one side for 6 -10 minutes. Flip steaks over and repeat cooking process until desired doneness. Transfer steaks to serving plate and let rest.

Carefully combine remaining wine, remaining shallots and mushrooms. Stir to deglaze pan and let wine reduce for 6 - 7 minutes. Spoon sauce over steaks.

Serves 2.
