You can't go wrong with this surf and turf entree that's elegant enough for any occasion. A creamy crab sauce is a smooth addition to New York strip steaks. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min.
MAKES: 4 servings


  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 boneless beef top loin steaks (8 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • SAUCE:
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (8 ounces) imitation crabmeat, coarsely chopped


  1. Combine the rosemary, salt and pepper; rub over steaks. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook steaks in oil for 5-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°)
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch and wine or broth until smooth. Stir in the cream, mustard, horseradish, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in crab; heat through. Serve over steaks. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Top loin steak may be labeled as strip steak, Kansas City steak, New York strip steak, ambassador steak or boneless club steak in your region.

"Used real crab meat instead of imitation. Was absolutely delicious. My husband said he would give it a six star on the 1 to 5 rating system."

"Very good. I made a rue instead of mixing corn starch and wine. It was excellent with steak. Probably go with roasted chicken."
