Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Score top of steak then season with ¼ tsp (1 mL) each of salt and pepper.

Melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter in an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak; sear for 2 min on each side. Place in oven, then roast for 10 min. Take internal temperature; depending on cut used, you may need to roast up to 10 more min (medium-rare is 140°F/60°C). Temperature will rise slightly when steak stands.

In a large frying pan, melt remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms, thyme, garlic, remaining ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt and pepper to taste. Stir frequently for 8 min or until mushrooms have softened. Stir in Worcestershire.

Stir in flour; gradually stir in milk. Stirring, bring to a boil. Stir frequently until sauce-like in consistency, about 4 min. Stir in parsley.

Transfer steak to a cutting board; let stand for 5 min. Thinly slice across the grain. Serve with mushroom sauce.


Seek out these tasty cuts of beef, found in some supermarkets and butcher shops. Eliminate the guesswork and always use a meat thermometer.

Mushrooms are best cleaned using a damp paper towel as they soak up too much water if rinsed. Enlist the help of your kids.

Serve the mushroom sauce with any type of a steak, toss with egg noodles or serve spooned over eggs.
