An incredible recipe for perfectly seared top sirloin steaks to lock in those precious juices and flavor. Topped of with a delicate sweet and savory shallot sauce which is also made with beef broth, red wine, and balsamic vinegar.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Total: 40 mins


  • 2 beef tenderloin steaks, (6 to 8 oz each), at room temperature
  • 2 oz shallots, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup beef broth
  • 4 tbsp red wine
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, chilled
  • salt and ground black pepper , to season and taste

To serve:

  • ¼ cup vegetables , of your choice (grilled cherry tomatoes and portobello mushrooms)
  • 1 sprig thyme


  1. Season your steaks generously with salt and pepper on both sides.

  2. Heat up your oil in a skillet over high heat. Add the steaks and sear evenly on all sides, roughly 5 minutes per side. Drain and set aside.

  3. Using the same skillet with oil, reduce heat to medium. Add shallots and saute for roughly 5 to 7 minutes until caramelized.

  4. Deglaze with red wine and balsamic vinegar. Reduce briefly.

  5. Add your beef broth and bring to a simmer. Return the steaks back to the sauce and simmer the sauce with the steaks for roughly 5 minutes until steaks are done to your preference.

  6. Set the steaks aside, then remove your sauce from the heat. Add butter and swirl to incorporate.

  7. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, then strain your sauce.

  8. Serve your steaks with vegetables of your choice and garnish with a sprig of thyme. You can either pour roughly ¼ cup of the sauce on top of the steaks and/or serve ¼ cup of the sauce on the side. Enjoy!
