This is a great recipe from Born to Grill by Bill and Cheryl Jamison. The sauce can be made several days in advance and refrigerated, just reheat it.

Like an upscale restaurant steak. We loved this steak. The only change I made was to pan-fry the steak because I have no grill and I had a potato dish in the oven and couldn't use the broiler. The sauce is wonderful. It may seem like it's not much but it only takes a thin coat on the steak because it's so rich and de-lish! Thank you HeidiSue, for this fantastic recipe. Will be making it again and again!!
