Cube Steak with Mushroom-Sherry Sauce for Two

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/cube_steak_mushroom_sauce_for_2.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 2010

Cube steak is a tougher cut of meat pounded to make it tender. We like it because it cooks quickly and is inexpensive—perfect for a weeknight dinner. Look for presliced mushrooms to save even more time on prep. Serve with: Mashed potatoes and grilled broccoli rabe.

2 servings | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Sprinkle steaks with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and salt. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add steaks and cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for medium. Transfer the steaks to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  2. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Add mushrooms, shallot and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper; cook, stirring, until the mushrooms are golden brown and release their liquid, 4 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add thyme, sherry and broth; bring to a boil and cook, stirring, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream. Return the steaks (and any accumulated juice) to the pan and turn to coat with the sauce. Serve the steaks with the sauce.
