Buttery, sweet, and savory Marsala sauce is perfect when partnered with chicken cutlets. But what about pairing it with steak?
Why This Recipe Works
For our steak Marsala, we set out to create an immensely doable, foolproof recipe that paired full-flavored beef and mushrooms with a perfectly complementary rich wine sauce. After testing all the readily available cuts of steak, we chose top sirloin for its unique combination of tenderness, affordability, and meatiness. To amplify the savoriness of the cremini mushrooms, we added rehydrated dried porcini mushrooms, which contributed a deep complexity. A healthy dose of sweet Marsala provided the perfect amount of deep smokiness to the sauce, and butter, lemon, and parsley rounded out the flavors.
