Date Night Dinner: Pan Roasted Flatiron Steak in a Red Wine Sauce topped with Mushrooms for Mommy and Daddy

I made this last weekend for our at home date night dinner. The at home date night is totally under rated. It's so nice to put our little guy to bed and then step into a delicious smelling kitchen where candles are lit, music is playing, and wine and my hubby are waiting. To me it's not only more cost effective, it's more romantic (even if we're both in sweats!).  This steak is melt in your mouth delicious, and so easy to make. I served this with roasted broccoli and cauliflower, but you can serve it with any veggie you like. Enjoy!

Here's what you need for 2 servings:
2 flatiron steaks
1 tbsp Herbs de Provence
3 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp onion powder
2 cups cremini mushrooms
1/2 cup red wine

Melt 1 tbsp butter in a medium sized skillet over medium high heat. Add mushrooms and onion powder. I'm always reminded of Julia Child every time I'm cooking mushrooms "don't crowd the mushrooms". Saute mushrooms until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove to a plate and set aside. Melt 1 tbsp butter with 2 tsp olive oil in the same skillet. Season steaks with salt, pepper and Herbs de Provence. Place in skillet and cook for 4 minutes on each side. Add the last tbsp of butter. Pour wine over steaks in skillet. Spoon wine over steaks.  Let wine reduce and spoon over steaks again. Add mushrooms back to skillet. Cook for 1 more minute. Place steaks on a plate, top with mushrooms and spoon sauce over steaks. Serve and enjoy!
