PCLinuxOS Recipe Corner: Black and Bleu Steak Skillet for Two

Black & Bleu Steak Skillet For Two


3 tablespoons olive oil
1 boneless beef strip steak (about 12 oz), trimmed
1 teaspoon Montreal steak grill seasoning
1 medium shallot, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
4 cups baby arugula
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese


1. In a 10-inch skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium heat. Season steak with grill seasoning. Add to the skillet; cook 9 to 11 minutes, turning once, until the meat thermometer inserted in the center reads 135F (medium-rare) or to desired doneness. Remove to a cutting board, and let stand for 5 minutes. Cut steak into 1/4-inch slices.

2. Meanwhile, add shallot to the same skillet; cook over medium heat 1 minute, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low; add balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and the honey; stir constantly 1 to 2 minutes or until shallots are coated and vinegar mixture is blended. Remove from heat.

3. Place arugula on a serving plate; top with steak slices, shallots and blue cheese.


Pair this steak skillet with a side of potatoes and red wine for a cozy dinner for two.

Montreal steak grill seasoning is readily available in the spice aisle of your grocery store. If you just want to use salt and pepper, substitute 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of ground pepper for the seasoning blend.
