Steak with Pan Sauce



  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat (if possible do not use a nonstick skillet). Add 1 tablespoon of the butter; reduce heat to medium. Cook steaks about 3 minutes per side or until medium rare (145 degree F). Transfer steaks to a platter; cover with foil to keep warm (steaks will continue to cook as they stand). Drain fat from skillet.
  2. Add wine, broth, and shallots to the hot skillet. Using a wire whisk, stir and scrape the bottom of the pan to remove browned bits . Continue to cook over medium heat about 3 to 4 minutes or until liquid is reduced to about 2 tablespoons. Reduce heat to medium low.
  3. Stir in cream, then remaining butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking until butter is melted and sauce has thickened slightly. Season to taste with salt and white pepper. Serve sauce at once over meat.
  4. Makes 2 servings
