How to Make Flat iron steak with sautéed mushrooms
- in a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add the mushrooms, onion, and garlic and cook for about eight minutes, stirring often, until the onion is soft. Add the salt, pepper, and thyme and mix well. Add the red wine and mix well. Cook for another 6 to 7 minutes, until the liquid is mostly evaporated and the mushrooms are tender. If more liquid is needed, add more wine. Keep warm on the stove.
- Prepare the grill for cooking over direct high heat. Place the steaks directly on the cooking grate. Cook for four minutes. Flip and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes for medium rare or to your desired degree of doneness. Remove to a platter and let rest for three minutes. To serve, spoon the mushrooms over the steaks. Serves four.
