Roasted Flat Iron Steak with Olive Oil-Herb Rub

What a treat for a mid week meal. I worked from home today so I started dinner at 5:30 and we sat down at the table at 6:30. No stress from sitting in traffic for over an hour. It was fun preparing a meal mid week. I know I am a geek but this is what I enjoy doing.

The recipe was from Cooking Light. I have made it before using the Flat Iron Steak and a Flank Steak. Flat Iron wins hands down. It was so tender and delicious. The herb rub was the perfect blend of flavors.

Roasted Flat Iron Steak with Olive Oil-Herb Rub

1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/8 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (1 1/2-pound) flat iron steak, trimmed
Cooking spray
1/4 cup dry red wine
1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium beef broth

Preheat oven to 400°.
Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.
Sprinkle salt and pepper over steak. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add steak to pan; cook 1 minute on each side or until browned. Add wine and broth; cook 1 minute. Spread herb mixture over steak; place pan in oven. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Serve with pan sauce.
Side dishes were Roasted Potatoes and Roasted Asparagus.

As I am typing this I have a black cat sitting on my arm. Tomorrow night we will have his favorite thing for dinner. Stay tuned!
