How To Make Pan-Seared T-Bone for Two with Rosemary Mustard Sauce


1 (14 ounce) t-bone steak
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup red wine
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon coarse-grained Dijon mustard


Season the steak with salt and pepper to taste. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the steak until nicely browned on the outside, and nearly cooked to your desired degree of doneness on the inside, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Remove the steak from the pan, and tent loosely with foil to keep warm.

Wipe the oil from the skillet, and pour in the red wine; simmer until reduced by half. Whisk the flour into the beef broth, then stir into the simmering red wine along with the rosemary and Dijon mustard. Return to a boil; cook, stirring constantly until the sauce reduces slightly and thickens. Keep warm over low heat.

Cut the meat from the bone, then slice into 1/3-inch thick pieces. Serve with the rosemary sauce.
