A fast and easy preparation for pan-fried steak with a rich sauce that's delicious with mashed potatoes and broccoli.
This satisfied my craving for a good steak with a fantastic sauce. I used an iron skillet to prepare this in as it allows me to get the heat very high before I put the steaks in (which makes them crusty and seals in the juices). I also sauted mushrooms and added to the sauce. I used rib eye steaks, fresh rosemary and beef broth. I also used Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper...it does make a difference. This is really an excellent recipe...a steak I would expect to get in an upscale restaurant. - 19 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Cannot wait to make this recipe again. Used filet mignon and it was superb. Also fresh rosemary. I think this would also be great for some thick boneless pork loin chops, like pork marsala. The sauce was to die for. Served with some mashed potatoes and drizzled some of the sauce on the potatoes. For a nice presentation, I took a long piece of fresh rosemary and placed it in the potatoes leaning over on the filet. Husband loved this. My mouth is watering now -- I think I will make this again tonight. Thank you for this great recipe! - 22 Apr 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I used chuck steak and it was so bad we had to throw the dinner in the garbage. Tried this with skirt steak and it was much better and tastier. - 05 May 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
