Flank Steak with Garlic Wine Sauce

This is tonight's dinner.  In preparation, I've roasted the head of garlic and the aroma has filled the house.  Heady stuff.  Woman Happy

 

Flank Steak with Garlic Wine Sauce 


Great on a cold day.  For best results, the meat should be rare.


1 medium head garlic
1 ½ pounds flank steak
salt to taste
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
4 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 cup dry red wine

 

Cut head of garlic in half, place on a square of foil, and drizzle with olive oil. Wrap. Bake at 400º for 45 minutes. Squeeze roasted garlic cloves out of skins, and mash into a puree. Set aside.

 

Sprinkle steak with salt and a generous amount of freshly ground pepper.

 

Heat a large heavy skillet over medium high heat, but do not add fat. When hot, cook seasoned steak until seared and well browned on both sides, about a minute per side. Reduce heat to medium, and add 2 Tablespoons of the butter. Continue to cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Remove meat, and keep warm.2

 

Pour off the fat in the skillet, and add the scallions and red wine.  Bring to a boil, and whisk in the garlic puree.  Boil until the wine is reduced by half, and is thick and syrupy.  As it boils, scrape up browned bits with a wooden spoon. Stir in the meat juices that have accumulated under the steak. Boil for another second or so. Remove from the heat, and stir in the remaining 2 Tablespoons of butter until it is incorporated into the wine sauce.

 

Quickly slice the meat against the grain, into thin strips. Arrange on a hot platter, and pour the sauce down the center of the slices. Serve at once.


Mrs. G's notes:

For a red wine with this, we like Syrah or a blend of Syrah and Cabernet.  

 

Side dishes: Salad and whole mushrooms sautéed in clarified butter

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.

To avoid repetition, I search for recipes I have already posted before sharing. I hope this is not considered "bumping."  That is not my intent; rather, I don't see reason to take up more 'space' with a repeated thread. 

 

It's been a almost a year since we last enjoyed this meal, but it will be dinner tonight, complete with the sides mentioned in the footnotes.

Don't worry about repetition of recipes.  One poster posted the same one several times so I decided to try it.  It was really delicious.  

 

Sometimes it is difficult to locate one on here when you want it, so keep repeating!  If they are your's, we know they are good!
