Diva Tasting: Steak Cosmos…

When the budget is tight I substitute sirloin and when its good I use tenderloin;
as it is meant to be.  
Steak Cosmos
Ingredients
  • Sauce:
  • 1/2 Cup Demi-Glace (Gravy Made with De Glazed Pan Drippings)
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 2 Teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Beef Broth
  • 1 Teaspoon Tomato Paste
  • 1 Pinch Cayenne Pepper
  • Steaks:
  • 2 Teaspoons Vegetable Oil
  • 2 (8 Ounce) New York Steaks, Fully Trimmed, Pounded To 1/2 Inch Thick
  • Kosher Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper, To Taste
  • 1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter, Cut Into Small Chunks
  • 3 Tablespoons Shallot, Minced
  • 1 Lb Cremini Mushrooms
  • 1/4 Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 Teaspoons Sliced Fresh Chives
Directions
  1. Season steaks generously on both sides with salt. Allow steaks to come to room temperature while you make the sauce.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over very high heat, swirling carefully to evenly cover surface. When oil reaches a smoking point, transfer steaks to oil; add a few chunks of butter. Sear meat on high heat until brown on each side, 2 to 3 minutes per side; keep them on the rare side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 125 degrees F. Transfer steaks to a warm plate.
  3. Stir shallots into skillet; cook until softened, 2 to 3 minutes add mushrooms and cook another 4 minutes. Remove skillet from heat; pour in balsamic vinegar return skillet to high heat and bring to a boil; cook, stirring, a few minutes to reduce slightly. Add cream and any accumulated juices from the steak. Cook on high heat just until sauce starts to thicken, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer steaks back to pan and reduce heat to low. Gently simmer until meat is heated through and cooked to your desired level of doneness.
  4. Transfer to hot plates and serve with a generous spoonful or two of sauce. Sprinkle Chives for Garnish
  5. Stir together demi-glace, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, ½ Cup Beef Stock tomato paste, and cayenne pepper in a bowl.
  6. Serve with Zucchini Boats, Mash Potatoes, Caesar Salad and Dinner Rolls
