Those moments when you feel like getting fancy for dinner but don’t want to slave away over your meal have been saved! Flank Steak with Mushrooms and Red Wine Sauce is gourmet without the effort!

Try this dish once and you’ll forever use it when you need to impress without all the fuss. We used this Marquina Fry Pan from Zwilling to get the job done when it came to cooking every item in this recipe - the non-stick capabilities were perfect for getting that caramelized sear on the meat. You’ll love the red wine sauce that’s so delicious with the tender steak and mushrooms...yum!

  • 12 ounces assorted mushrooms, torn or cut into large pieces
