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

  • 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

  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (8 ounces) imitation crabmeat, coarsely chopped


  • Combine the rosemary, salt and pepper; rub over steaks. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook steaks in oil until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°), 5-8 minutes on each side.
  • 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 until thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in crab; heat through. Serve over steaks.

    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.
