We really enjoyed these steaks. They are a great way to use garden oregano, and the sauce is delicious over steaks and drizzled over baked potatoes. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (December 2005)

Outstanding.. Juicy and full of flavor ..Make sure you make enough sauce... I didn't have the sherry vinegar so I used a little wine

Great pan-seared steak! The sauce is phenomenal! I really wondered about it, but it turned out soooo good! My steak was an inch thick, and I needed to reduce the cooking time in order to keep a bit of pink inside. Definitely 5 star worthy, and a recipe I'll make often. Thanks for sharing!

Great steak! I cooked mine to a nice medium rare and it was juicy and tender. I cut the recipe back to one serving but forgot to cut back on the beef broth, so my sauce came out rather thin, lol. My fault - not the recipe. The flavor will still there tho. Thanks ellie for a nice dinner. Made for Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.
