Directions

  1. In a large, heavy self-sealing plastic bag combine lemon juice, oil, oregano, pepper, and garlic.
  2. Shake to blend well.
  3. Place steak in bag and seal it.
  4. Let it marinate for at least 3 to 24 hrs.
  5. About 15 to 20 minutes before cooking steak, remove it from bag and set aside: reserve the marinade.
  6. Preheat an 11inch square or 12inch round grill pan over medium heat until the pan is hot to the touch.
  7. Then rub with 1 teaspoon of butter to prevent sticking.
  8. Place steak in pan and cook until well browned on the bottom (about 6 minutes); turn steak over, then reduce to medium heat.
  9. Continue to cook until steak is well browned on second side and cooked to your liking.
  10. Meanwhile, heat a 10 inch pan or 3 quart sauté pan over medium high heat until rim of pan is hot to the touch.
  11. Add remaining 5 teaspoons of butter.
  12. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms are tender and lightly browned (about 5 minutes).
  13. Add reserved marinade and cook until almost all the liquid has evaporated.
  14. Place steak on a serving board or platter; cut across the grain into thin slanting pieces.
  15. Spoon mushrooms over servings of steak; season to taste with salt.
  16. Garnish the dish with the tomato mixture.

I grilled the steak, rather than pan frying. I added the marinade with the butter for the mushrooms up front rather than halfway through. My tomatoes had gone bad so I left that off. Those are the only changes I made. I like lemon, but I think this really had too much. The marinade smelled wonderful, but the lemon flavor was quite noticeable after the steak was cooked. I suggest reducing the lemon to 2T instead of 3. I don't cook steak all that often, so I'm not sure if I'll use this again, but it did make for an enjoyable meal.
