marsala beef and mushrooms



  • 1/2 lb skirt steak
  • salt
  • pepper
  • thyme
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pint crimini mushrooms (sliced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 cup marsala wine
  • baby arugula


prep the mushrooms – clean off the dirt and slice.  prep the steak – sprinkle with salt, pepper, and thyme.

place nonstick skillet over high heat.  add olive oil to the pan.  just when the oil begins to smoke, add the steak and brown on both sides (about 2 minutes on each side).  remove the steak from the pan to rest (cover with tin foil).  turn heat down to medium high, add a touch more oil to the pan, add mushrooms, and garlic and sautee.  when mushrooms are brown turn the heat back up to high for 1 minute then turn off and add marsala wine to the pan.  return the pan to the heat and simmer to reduce.

slice the steak and add it back to the pan to finish cooking with the mushrooms.

serve over a bed of fresh baby arugula.  enjoy!
