Steak with a Caper Sauce

h2Chef’s Notes/h2
pThis recipe uses an old restaurant trick that gives the steak a slight crust and keeps it juicy inside./p
pIf you have never used capers they are worth a try, but if you are not adventurous, use “yuck” mushrooms in their place. If you hate mushrooms, just use the shallots./p
pI use wine in this recipe. You can just as easily use beef broth and a ½ teaspoon of tomato paste. For my appetite, I like a 6-8 ounce steak. Adjust the serving size to your personal needs./p
