Blade Steaks with Mushrooms
Makes 4 servings
4 (1/2-inch-thick) top blade steaks
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 large mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 beef broth
1 teaspoon cornstarch, dissolved in small amount of water
Pat steaks dry and sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then cook steaks, turning over once, until meat is just medium-rare, 4 to 6 minutes total. Transfer steaks to a platter and cover loosely with foil.
Add butter to skillet and sauté mushrooms and onion, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are browned and tender, about 4 minutes, then transfer to platter with steaks.
Add vinegar and soy sauce to skillet with stock and simmer, stirring and scraping up any brown bits, 2 minutes.
Stir cornstarch mixture into sauce and simmer, stirring, 1 minute. Return steaks and mushrooms, along with any juices accumulated on platter, to skillet and simmer, turning steaks over in sauce, until just heated through, about 1 minute.
Allow meat to rest then slice and serve with the mushroom sauce and your choice of vegetables.
