The holidays are hectic. This Pan Seared Flank Steak with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce will make everyone think you slaved in the kitchen all day!

Pan-Seared Flank Steak with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce

Is your Thanksgiving week as busy as mine? Between the kids’ schedules, errands to run and getting a head start on my Thanksgiving cooking, dinner is often an after thought. So I need easy meals that don’t take long to get on the table. And since we will be eating turkey quite a bit in the next week, I crave a good cut of beef. And this Pan Seared Flank Steak with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce doesn’t disappoint.

Now our love of Stubb’s BBQ Sauces and marinades is not a secret. We have shared a handful of recipes over the past year using their great products. And this Pan Seared Flank Steak with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce is no exception. I used the Stubb’s Beef Marinade to pack flavor in the meat and the sauce. The beef marinade is filled with soy sauce, garlic and red pepper and complements the mushrooms and red wine perfectly. And the fact that the marinade is gluten free and made with all natural ingredients is another bonus. I usually pop the meat in the marinade in the morning and then cook it at night, but I’ve even done made this meal with a quick 1 hour soak in the marinade and still had tasty results.

If you’re a pan sauce newbie, don’t worry – it’s easy peasy. When you pour the red wine in to deglaze the pan, be sure to scrape the browned bits off the bottom of the pan. They add a ton of flavor that can’t be replicated. Then let it reduce and swirl some cold butter in at the end. Voila! Company worthy steak made on the stove. Who says great steak has to be made strictly on the grill?

This Pan Seared Flank Steak is a meal that looks like you slaved for hours but is done in 30 minutes. Shhhh…my family is going to think I have it together. You’ll keep my secret, right?

    Gosh, that looks so gooooood! I love Stubb’s barbecue sauces because they contain real ingredients (no HFCS). I haven’t tried their marinades though but will next time I load up on their sauces!

    I love a good pan sauce, and this dish looks amazing! Wish I would have thought to make something like this this week. Instead, we’ve been eating takeout while doing Thanksgiving prep every night. haha.
