Ingredients

  • 1 boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick (8 to 10 ounces total)
     
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
     
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
     
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
     
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
     
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine or low-calorie cranberry juice*
     
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
     
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
     
  • 1 teaspoon honey*
     

Directions

  1. Trim fat from steak; cut steak into two equal portions. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add steaks. Reduce heat to medium; cook for 10 to 13 minutes or until desired doneness (145 degrees F for medium-rare or 160 degrees F for medium doneness), turning steaks occasionally. If steaks brown too quickly, reduce heat to medium-low. Transfer steaks to a serving platter; cover with foil and keep warm.
  2. Add mushrooms, garlic, and crushed red pepper to skillet; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove skillet from heat. Carefully add wine or cranberry juice. Return to heat. Boil gently, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until most of the liquid is evaporated. Add balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and honey; return to simmering. Cook and stir about 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Spoon over steaks.

Tip

  • * If using the cranberry juice option, omit the honey.
