Great on a cold winter day, and a real heart warmer. For best results, the meat should be quite rare.

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Cut head of garlic in half, place on a square of foil, and drizzle with olive oil. Wrap. Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 45 minutes. Squeeze roasted garlic cloves out of skins, and mash into a puree. Set aside.

  • Sprinkle steak with salt and a generous amount of freshly ground pepper. Heat a large heavy skillet over medium high heat, but do not add fat. When hot, cook seasoned steak until seared and well browned on both sides, about a minute per side. Reduce heat to medium, and add 2 tablespoons of the butter. Continue to cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Remove meat, and keep warm.

  • Pour off the fat in the skillet, and add the scallions and red wine. Bring to a boil, and whisk in the garlic puree. Boil until the wine is reduced by half, and is thick and syrupy. As it boils, scrape up browned bits with a wooden spoon. Stir in the meat juices that have accumulated under the steak. Boil for another second or so. Remove from the heat, and stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter until it is incorporated into the wine sauce.

  • Quickly slice the meat against the grain, into thin strips. Arrange on a hot platter, and pour the sauce down the center of the slices. Serve at once.

...This was awesome!!!!...I too added 1/2 cup of mushrooms and 1 can of the beef broth. It takes 45 min or so to reduce the wine sauce and that is boiling it on high the entire time so allow for this. Highly recommended. Read More

No one including myself enjoyed this entree. The cut of beef was too tough and the sauce was bland. Maybe with a better cut of meat and adding your favorite spices to the sauce would make it better. Read More

We really loved this. Once the meat was out of the pan it was difficult to keep it warm without over cooking it. So I cooked the meat a bit less and after the sauce was complete returned the meat to the pan to finish cooking it. It was a great way to cover the meat with the delicious sauce. It worked out very well. Read More

Excellent!!! I also added a can of beef broth and about a cup of mushrooms. Absolutely wonderful. I accidently started it all before realizing my beef was bad and used chicken instead and it was still very good. Recommended! Read More

Yum yum yum! We all LOVED this. I didn't find it tough at all. It's important to slice thinly against the grain. Very easy too. Read More

I really love this recipe. The sauce is great simple and savory tasting. I cooked medium rare and made extra sauce and served over mashed potatoes. This recipe is really easy and flavorful. Read More

My Boyfriend loved this so much that he invited his friends over to have me cook. Although I changed the recipe a little I did not have any red wine so I used white Zinfandel. It worked really well. I also use garlic powder. I cooked it the correct way once and it was good but my boyfriend liked it better with the changes. Read More

This was good. The sauce had a different taste than what I expected but still good. I did use a better cut of meat (all I had on hand) and I think that helped a bit. We will try again but I do think I might tinker with spices to get a more flavorful dish. Thanks for the post. Read More

Surprise my picky 11 year old loved it. My other daughter and husband also raved about it. Like others I added beef broth and mushrooms to the sauce. I also cooked my flank steak some more in the oven since I hate any red looking meat. I liked this recipe. My only complaint was it was salty to me but that could of been the cooking wine I used plus the broth. Anyway it will be made again in my home because it went over well and was simple to do.
