Last Night's Dinner #39: Strip Steak

Simple, yet satisfying.

Strip Steak with Balsamic-Mustard Sauce

Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart
Prep: 15 minutes
Total: 15 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
Serves 2

You'll need:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 strip steaks (about 3/4 inch thick)
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard

I'm in love with my new cast iron skillet!

step 1. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Season steaks generously on both sides with salt and pepper; place in skillet. Cook, turning once, until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate; cover with foil.

step 2. Add vinegar to skillet; boil until syrupy, 1 to 2 minutes. Add a pinch of brown sugar. Remove from heat; whisk in mustard and any accumulated juices from steaks. Serve sauce with steaks.

Serve with haricot vert (french string beans) or steak-cut fries (even better) - try this almost guilt-free baked fries recipe!
