Steak for one pan-fried, then bathed in a spicy sauce! I threw this together because I didn't really have much in the kitchen, being a poor student abroad. I don't even like meat, but this was quite tasty. I like to make it really spicy--you have to use good quality HOT paprika. This is great with mashed potatoes, a pile of veggies, and bread to sop up all that sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat up a nonstick skillet.
  2. Season steak on both sides with paprika, pepper, and salt.

  4. Remove steak from pan to warm plate.
  5. Add wine to hot pan, deglazing and stirring with wooden spoon to get all the meaty bits into the sauce.

  7. Spoon over meat and eat!
