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

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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.
