Steak, steak, steak.... This is really fast and easy to make, but it looks (and tastes) like a million bucks!  I was trying to recreate one of the "best steaks we ever ate" that The Man and I had at the Bad Art Bistro in St. Joseph, Missouri- I think this got pretty close. 


2 small steaks
4-5 mushrooms
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. herbs fines (opional)
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar

Chop your mushrooms and set them aside.

Heat a cast iron skillet until a bit of meat or a small water droplet placed on the pan sizzles, then place your (room temperature) steaks on the hot skillet.  Let them sear on one side, then flip them over and let them sear on the other.  Pour 1/2 cup of dry white wine over the steaks, then drizzle with your teaspoon of balsamic vinegar.  Sprinkle with a bit of salt and your herbs fines and turn the heat on low.  Let the steaks simmer in this sauce for 5 minutes or a little longer, if you like your steak more on the well done side.

Remove the steaks from the pan and set them aside on a plate.  You can tent them with foil if you like, but they won't be out of the pan for long, so it's not really necessary.

Add your chopped mushrooms to the pan.  Toss them around and let them soak up that delicious sauce.

Put the steaks back into the pan to let them warm up for just a bit, then plate them and let the compliments roll in!
