Steak with Shallot Wine Sauce – Deliciously devine

Steak with shallot wine sauce.

Simple steak with a salad is an easy way to end a busy day.  Our little guy is really getting into my  blog and tonight he wanted to make sure that he gave his thumb up on dinner.  It was a new sauce for him and his exact words: “very good mom, you should publish it in your blog”.

The sauce has a nice pick me up flavor to it. The flavor of wine and vinegar is quite nice as it lingers in the house. I love wine so this recipe was just perfect for me. However when you cook with wine the alcohol will evaporate, so safe for the little one.

Tonight’s April 14, 2010 dinner:
Steak with Shallot Wine Sauce
Green salad
Strawberries with cream and brown sugar

4 fillet mignon steak, 1 to 1½ thick
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
½ cup chopped shallots
1 tablespoon thyme leaves
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 cup dry red wine
Salt and freshly ground pepper

In a heavy skillet bring oil and the butter to a sizzle.  Add the steaks and cook over medium heat, 8 minutes on each side for medium. Remove the steaks from the pan and cover to keep warm.  Add the shallots and the thyme to the pan; stir and cook for 1 minute.  Pour the vinegar and the wine: simmer for 2-3 more minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Slice the steaks crosswise and pour the sauce over the steaks

Butter lettuce, green leaf or Romaine lettuce with a vinaigrette made of olive oil, vinegar and salt.  My rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon of vinegar, 3 tablespoons of olive oil.  In a bowl, mix the vinegar with the salt until the salt is dissolved, add the olive oil and mix well.  Toss in the salad and enjoy.
