    Quickly sauted mushrooms create a nice topping for this succulent strip steak.
    Alicia Ross/Kitchen Scoop


2 tablespoons butter, divided

4-6 ounces New York strip steak

1 tablespoon crumbled Gorgonzola or blue cheese of choice

2 ounces sliced mushrooms

cup red wine of choice

Salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Melt half the butter over medium-high heat in a regular skillet. Sear the steak on both sides, about 2 minutes each. Transfer the steak to a baking dish and sprinkle the cheese over the steak. Bake 6 minutes for rare, an additional 1 to 2 minutes for medium, and an additional 3 to 4 minutes for well done. (Based on a 1-inch-thick steak. Adjust times as needed for other thicknesses.)

While steak is in the oven, saute the mushrooms in the skillet over medium heat. When mushrooms are tender, about 3 minutes, add the red wine to deglaze the pan. Loosen any brown bits from the bottom. Cook to reduce liquid by one-half and remove from heat. Swirl in the remaining butter.

When steak is cooked to your personal preference, pour the mushroom sauce over the steak and serve.

Serves one.
