Steak with Spicy Balsamic Glaze

Let's face it with a toddler running around showing me how she can drink apple juice with her eyes closed and a newborn who needs diapers changed, fed and snuggles all day who has time to make dinner and let alone a healthy one at that! This recipe is easy, quick and you probably already have all of the ingredients in your pantry. This flavored packed glaze is easy enough for a weeknight but completely worth having friends over! I have already made this three times in the last couple weeks, it's healthy, fast and fresh solutions for dinner tonight. 

Steak with Spicy Balsamic Glaze

1 pound boneless top sirloin steak, about 1 inch thick, trimmed of fat
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup apple cider
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 cup honey

Place steak in a resealable plastic bag. Add water, apple cider, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and crushed red pepper. Seal bag. Marinate 20 minutes, turning occasionally. 
Heat a large skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray over medium heat. Remove steak from bag, reserving marinade. Season with salt and black pepper. Cook 12 minutes, turning once, or until desired doneness. Remove; keep warm.
For glaze, add marinade and honey to skillet; whisk to combine. Bring to boiling. Boil gently, uncovered, about 7 minutes or until reduced to 1/3 cup. Serve glaze with sliced steak. Makes 4 servings. 

Add a simple salad of peaches and spinach, easy enough for a weeknight!

  3. I love a balsamic glaze, on meat and a balsamic dressing on salad, yum! I have never added Worcestershire sauce or crushed red pepper, I will the next time, sounds terrific, and it looks great with the salad!

  4. Garlic? Sesame seeds? Not bad additions, but, your recipe is right on and doesn't need improvement. Thank you. Jim.
