Ingredients

  • 4 boneless beef top loin steaks (8 ounces each)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 pound sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 cup roasted sweet red peppers, cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine or beef broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 focaccia bread (12 ounces), cut into quarters
  • 2/3 cup shredded Asiago cheese
  • 1/4 cup sliced pimiento-stuffed olives

Directions

  • In a large skillet, cook steaks in 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Remove and keep warm.
  • In the same skillet, saute the mushrooms, shallot and onion in remaining oil. Add garlic and rosemary; saute 1-2 minutes longer. Stir in the red peppers, wine, salt and pepper; heat through.
  • Place focaccia on serving plates; top each with a steak and 1/2 cup mushroom mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and olives.

    Great recipe! My family loved it! I used shaved mozzarella cheese instead of Asiago. The kids are not fans of olives so I did not add them to their steaks. I also cooked our steaks a little longer (30 mins).Absolutely Fabulous!!!

    This steak was very good and tasty, however I felt that the cheese was too strong but that just may be my own taste. My family really enjoyed this meal.:-)
