How to Make Easy Flat Iron Steak in Wine Sauce


  • 1Allow the steaks to come to room temperature (important)
  • 2Wisk 2 T olive oil, cayenne pepper, paprika, pepper, salt, mustard powder, and garlic powder.
  • 3Prick steaks with a fork and rub them well with the paste. Let sit for 30 miniutes.
  • 4Heat 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.
  • 5Remove steaks from skillet with tongs and let rest.
  • 6add red wine, balsamic vinegar, and kitchen bouquet to skillet. Stir in mushrooms. Simmer until all is reduced somewhat, and hot.
  • 7Turn off heat and add butter.
  • 8Serve steaks with sauce over the top, some crusty bread, a small baked potato, and veggie of your choice if desired.
  • 9Serve with burgundy wine in your goblet.
