Week night dinner - Steak with mushroom sauce

This is a quick dish to make, that although it meets the criteria of a weeknight dinner, quick and easy, it is good enough to serve to company.

Serves 2

1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 steaks (I found strip loin on sale)
1/2 onion finely chopped
1 clove of garlic thinly sliced.
1 cup of sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup of red wine
handful of chopped parsley

Salt and pepper the steak then cook in the olive oil in frying pan to your preferred doneness rare for me well done for my husband.

Take the steaks out and keep warm while they rest and you make the sauce.  Add the onion and garlic to the cooking juices, and cook until the onion is translucent.

Then add the mushrooms and cook until they are softened.

Then add the red wine and pour yourself a glass while you are at it.  Cook the red wine down until the sauce has thickened and add the parsley.  If I was not trying to watch my weight I would have added a nob of butter at this point to richen the sauce even further.

Pour over the steaks and serve,  enjoy that glass of wine and a good steak dinner, you deserve it after a long day at work.
