BrokeAss Gourmet

Seared Steak with Red Wine Sauce and Broccolini

  • Prep Time 1:15
  • Cook Time 1:15
  • Estimated Cost $16.00

Flank steak is one of the most BrokeAss-friendly cuts of meat around. It’s rich and flavorful on its own but also takes well to whatever you put on it and, most importantly, it tastes delicious without breaking the bank. The luxurious wine sauce will make you feel as if you are eating in a fancy restaurant and the lemony broccolini (which is milder-tasting and thinner than broccoli but equally full of antioxidants) is the perfect accompaniment. Finish off this decadent meal with Chardonnay-Poached Pears and just watch your dining companion try to keep their clothes on.


For Steak:

1 8-oz flank steak $4
Soy sauce $2
Salt and pepper Pantry
Leaves of 1 fresh thyme sprig $1
6 green onions, sliced $1
1/2 bottle red 2-Buck Chuck $2
1 stick butter $1.50
1 small bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped $1

For Broccolini:

1 pound broccolini $3
salt and pepper to taste Pantry
1 tablespoon olive oil Pantry
2 cloves garlic, minced Pantry
1 lemon—1/2 juiced, other ½ cut into wedges. $0.50


For Steak:

  1. Place steak on a large plate or in a baking dish and brush with soy sauce and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper to taste and the thyme. Let stand for 1 hour.
  2. Brush again with soy sauce and place on a hot grill pan or barbeque over high heat for 1-2 minutes on each side for rare steak (3-4 minutes on each side for medium, 4-5 minutes on each side for well-done). Slice steak on the diagonal.
  3. To make the sauce, combine green onions and wine in a medium saucepan and bring to a light boil. Add butter and parsley and allow to cook for another 2-3 minutes. Slice the steak on the diagonal and arrange prettily on plates. Spoon sauce over steak and serve with the broccolini.

For Broccolini:

  1. Trim ends off of broccolini. Place the broccolini in a large frying pan and cover with water. Cover pan and bring to a boil. Simmer broccolini 6 to 7 minutes, until tender and bright green. Drain the broccolini and set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in pan over medium heat and add the garlic. Cook garlic 1-2 minutes and return broccolini to the pan.
  3. Add lemon juice and salt and pepper to the broccolini and toss well to ensure that each piece is well-coated.

I love reading budget gourmet items. I tend more towards the skirt steak than the flank, but both can be very good. I have a series on wines for the new depression with some good cheap wine finds (I detest the two buck chuck).
