This sirloin steak owes its great flavor to a savory combination of beef stock, garlic, balsamic vinegar and butter. It's a simple recipe that ensures great tasting beef each and every time.


  • 1 boneless beef sirloin steak (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large shallot, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 2 cups Swanson® Beef Stock
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves


  • Step 1

    Season the beef as desired.  Heat half the oil in a 12-inch skillet over high heat.  Add the beef and cook for 6 minutes or until well browned on both sides.  Remove the beef from the skillet.

  • Step 2

    Heat the remaining oil in the skillet.  Add the shallots and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often.  Add the garlic and cook and stir for 1 minute.  Add the flour and cook and stir for 1 minute.

  • Step 3

    Add the stock and vinegar and heat to a boil, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.  Cook for 4 minutes or until the stock mixture is reduced by half.

  • Step 4

    Return the beef to the skillet.  Reduce the heat to medium-low.  Cook for 5 minutes for medium or until desired doneness.  Stir in the butter.  Season to taste.  Slice the beef and serve with the sauce.  Sprinkle with the rosemary.
