Want to feel — and look — like a top chef? Serve "Pan-seared Steak" (search our Recipe File) with a homemade sauce. It's literally as easy as 1, 2, 3:


  • 1/4 cup wine, broth, water or a combination of any of the three

  • 1/4 cup sliced green olives, minced fresh herbs, green onions and shallots; or 1 tbsp (15 mL) capers, grainy mustard and lemon juice


  • Remove cooked meat from the pan you cooked it in. Take the pan off the stove and add wine, broth, water or a combination of any of the three.

  • Flavour by throwing in one of the following: olives, herbs, onions and shallots; or capers, mustard and lemon juice.

  • Cook a few minutes until slightly thickened; stir in butter and serve beside or over meat.
