Pan Fried Flap Steak with Leek & Shiitake Mushroom Sauce
SUCH an exciting night around our house! The Giants are up 3-1 in the series! Woot woot!
You got to LOVE Ooooribe!!!! Torture never felt so good!! Hope you enjoy the dinner! Flap meat!!! Got it at Costco! Just like skirt steak or flank steak, but cheaper! If you can find it... go for it! and GO GIANTS!
2-3 lbs. Flap meat
1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. crushed red chili flakes
pinch sea salt (optional)
1/4 C red wine
1/4 C beef broth
2 cloves garlic, minced
8-10 shiitake mushrooms
1 large leek, washed well, thinly sliced white and light green parts
1/2 tsp. arrowroot powder
Coat flap meat with a tad of olive oil and rub with seasonings (garlic powder, black pepper and crushed red chili flakes), set aside. Heat skillet or grill pan to medium high heat. Grill flap steak for about 10 minutes on each side. While flap steak is cooking, saute garlic in a little olive oil. Add leeks and mushrooms, as they cook down and soften, add red wine. Mix together arrowroot powder and beef broth. Add to pan and cook on medium temperature until sauce starts to thicken. Remove from heat and set aside. Slice steak across the grain and pour mushroom leek sauce over the top. Add a pinch of celtic grey sea salt (if desired). Serve this with your choice of side... a tossed green salad or steamed veggies would be tasty! We just had some simple sliced heirloom tomatoes. Hope you enjoy!
