Ingredients

1 large
beef flat iron (or skirt) steak cut into 4 steaks
2 Tbsp
olive oil (for spice paste rub)
1/8 tsp
cayenne pepper (don't be afraid it'll be too
1 tsp
cracked black pepper
1 Tbsp
paprika, sweet mild
1 tsp
salt
1 1/2 tsp
dry mustard
1 1/2 tsp
garlic powder
3 Tbsp
olive oil (for searing steaks)
1/2 c
burgundy wine
1 c
canned mushrooms (or fresh sauted)
1 tsp
balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp
butter
1/2 tsp
kitchen bouquet (for a browner sauce)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Allow the steaks to come to room temperature (important)
2
Wisk 2 T olive oil, cayenne pepper, paprika, pepper, salt, mustard powder, and garlic powder.
3
Prick steaks with a fork and rub them well with the paste. Let sit for 30 miniutes.
4
Heat your cast iron skillet med. hot and add the remaining 3 T of olive oil. When smoking, add 2 of the 4 steaks (all 4 if your skillet is large enough). Sear to desired doneness without burning the spices (turn down and cover if need be). I prefer a med steak instead of Jackie B.'s recommended rare.
5
Remove steaks from skillet with tongs and let rest.
6
add red wine, balsamic vinegar, and kitchen bouquet to skillet. Stir in mushrooms. Simmer until all is reduced somewhat, and hot.
7
Turn off heat and add butter.
8
Serve steaks with sauce over the top, some crusty bread, a small baked potato, and veggie of your choice if desired.
9
Serve with burgundy wine in your goblet.
