4 portions


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped shallot or onion
  • 8 ounces (about 3 cups) fresh white mushrooms, cleaned, trimmed and quartered
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 4 boneless sirloin steaks, grilled (about 8 ounces each)


In medium-sized skillet, over medium heat, melt butter. Add shallot; cook and stir until soft, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until barely tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in beef broth, wine and thyme. Turn heat to high; cook, stirring occasionally, to blend flavors, about 4 minutes. Spoon sauce over steaks and serve immediately.

For a vegetarian version of this elegant dish, substitute vegetable broth for the beef broth in the sauce and serve over grilled large portabella caps.
