Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Boil shallots with red-wine vinegar in a heavy, small saucepan until the mixture is reduced to a glaze. Add wine, and boil until sauce is syrupy. Add chicken stock, garlic, and soy sauce, and boil until it has reduced and thickened to a saucelike consistency. Season with salt and pepper. (This can be prepared several hours ahead, cooled, covered, and set aside at cool room temperature, or refrigerated.)

  • Season steak with salt and pepper. Place a heavy cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, and film with oil. Sear both sides of steak in skillet, and place in a 300 degree oven, and cook until steak is medium rare. Transfer steak to a cutting board, and let it rest 5 minutes. Meanwhile add shallot glaze with butter to skillet to deglaze.

  • Slice steak diagonally crosswise. Overlap the slices on a plate and pour the glaze over the steak. Serve immediately with frites.
