Similar to healthy, fancy is also easily obtained. Sometimes I crave a juicy medium rare steak, but a $30+ filet mignon dinner isn’t in my weekly budget. So I wait and wait and wait until I see any type of tender beef on sale at the market. I was planning on making a spicy sausage and spinach pasta bake, but at Hollywood Market the boneless sirloin was on sale. I swiped a nice piece and changed my mind on dinner. Instead of Italian, it was fancy steak for dinner. I knew my family would be pleased with the change in plans as steak is always a pleaser. I wanted to pair the steak with a robust sauce as the sides that night were light steamed broccoli. The game plan: Cabernet Mushroom sauce. This sauce is so simple to make and *in my opinion* are restaurant worthy. Since it was too late to marinate the steak, I decided to go with a pepper crusted flavor – easy just crush up some peppercorns on hand. I had a medley of red, white, green, and black peppercorns so I used that to crust it. I had a helper to assist in fancy dinner night. Although people say to avoid red meat to be healthy – I strongly disagree. It is something to eat in moderation and to eat lean. The boneless sirloin had enough marbling for a tender slice and did not have any fat. The beef gave my family a nice large helping of iron and protein. If you are looking to please someone with a meal, entertain guests, or simply are just craving steak, this is your recipe. It is easy, quick, and very elegant.
