    Flat Iron Steak with Red Wine Sauce

    2 (1-pound) flat iron steaks or tri-tip steaks

    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for garnish

    6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter

    1 onion, thinly sliced

    1 tablespoon minced garlic

    1 teaspoon dried oregano

    1/4 cup tomato paste

    2 1/2 cups dry red wine

    Prepare the grill or barbecue (medium-high heat). Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper and drizzle with the 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Grill to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board. Tent with foil and let stand 10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a heavy large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt. Add the garlic and oregano and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Whisk in the wine. Simmer until the sauce reduces by half, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat. Strain the sauce into a small bowl, pressing on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard the solids in the strainer and return the sauce to the saucepan and bring back to a slow simmer. Cut the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter into small 1/2-inch chunks and whisk in the sauce a little at a time. Season the sauce, to taste, with salt and pepper.

    Thinly slice the steaks across the grain. Divide the steak slices among 6 plates. Drizzle the sauce over the steak, drizzle a little more extra-virgin olive oil and serve.

    Chopped fresh rosemary leaves, for garnish (about 2 sprigs)

    Mix black pepper and allspice together. Set aside. Rub the chopped green peppercorns into both sides of the steaks. Sprinkle the pepper and allspice mixture on both sides of the steaks, to taste. Put the steaks in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Remove from refrigerator and salt, to taste. Let stand for about 1/2 hour at room temperature before grilling. An oven broiler can also be used. Cook to desired doneness. Remove from heat and let stand for at least 5 minutes. Garnish with chopped rosemary and serve.

    Alot of people overthink steak. As a steak lover, I prefer to taste steak.

    In my opinion, the best recepie for any steak is simple.

    Rub steak with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with extra virgin olivie oil.

    Heat a skillet to medium high heat. Melt one pat of butter in skillet. Add steak. When the top of your steak begins to "sweat", it's time to turn your steak (if you like Medium Rare). If you like it more done, cook it a few minutes longer on each side.

    When your steak is done as you like it, remove the steak from the skillet onto a clean plate or cutting board. Rest steak for 5 minutes to allow the juices to permeate the entire steak. While the steak is resting, put a pat of butter or a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil on top of your hot steak. The butter/oil will melt all over your steak and add a rich, buttery flavor that does not overpower the flavor of your steak.

    Congratulations, you've cooked the perfect steak!

    *note: Good choice of Flat Iron. Tender, but flavorful.*
