Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the beef and cook until well browned on both sides until desired doneness, about 10 minutes for medium-rare. Remove the beef from the skillet.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter and the remaining oil in the skillet. Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add the shallot, garlic and rosemary and cook and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in the concentrated broth, water and remaining butter and cook until the butter is melted.

  • Cut the beef diagonally against the grain into thin slices. Serve the mushroom mixture with the beef.

Tips

Recipe Note: Slicing the beef on the diagonal, against the grain, makes this traditionally tough but flavorful cut of meat more tender.

Ingredient Note: If you decide to use skirt steak for this recipe, you may need to cut it into 4 pieces to fit it into the skillet. If the pieces crowd the skillet, cook them in batches to ensure the best browning.

Delicious! I substituted the beef broth for some Heinz Homestyle Savory Mushroom gravy and water which made a thick and very savory sauce! Read More

Pretty good. I usually don't make steak but gave it a shot tonight. I only used one packet of beef broth and used soy sauce. I'll try two packets next time. Read More

This meal was both easy to prepare and delicious! I followed the directions exactly except for the fact that I did not have fresh or dried rosemary. It was a hit in my house served over rice. Read More

I made this last night and it was delicious!!! The flank steak needed about 9 minutes on each side for a medium. I seasoned the steak with a little Paula Deen House Seasoning before searing and let it rest before cutting it. Read More

This was very good...husband loved it. A few comments: I am not familiar with flank steak. The recipe said 1 flank steak. The one at the meat market was 2 lbs. Not sure if this is typical but thought maybe it could have used more sauce. Also shallots are expensive and next time I will try regular onion. The beef broth was very tasty but also not cheap. I may try to replicate it with bouillion and soy sauce with a bit of worcesteshirer. Will make again. Read More

I am only reviewing the sauce. That was fantastic only made 2 minor changes i put a little red wine after the shallots and garlic and at the very end i add a little bit of corn starch very little just to make it ticker it was great i served it on top of garlic mashed potatoes and some thinly sliced rib eye. For the rib eye i seared it in a skillet and then finished at the oven because it was a thick cut Read More
