Recipe by Chandra M
This is a great recipe for a small dinner party. The pan sauce is delicious over garlic cheese mashed potatoes or Cauliflower Puree. This is probably my husband's favorite dish, at least it is the one he requests the most. As written the sauce can be spicy (depending on the freshness and type of cayenne you have), so if you are not a fan of spicy food I would 1/2 the cayenne.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs boneless beef steaks, cut 3/4-inch thick (economical cuts like bottom round work well)
- 3 -4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 -3 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 stalks celery, cut on diagonal in 1-inch slices
- 1⁄2 lb mushroom, sliced in thirds
- 1 bunch scallion, chopped (white & green parts)
- 1 cup red wine
- 1⁄2 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 3⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
