Balsamic steak with radicchio

Grocery list

4 6-oz beef rib eye round steaks
Salt and ground pepper to taste
3 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tsp sugar
1 clove garlic, sliced
2 heads radicchio, torn into pieces
1/3 cup sundried tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/4 cup aged balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves (or 1/4 cup dried basil leaves)


Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Season the steaks with salt and pepper.  Add 1tbsp butter to the hot skillet and swirl the pan to coat with melted butter.  Add the steaks, sprinkle with a pinch of sugar, and sear for 4 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom.  Flip and cook for 3 minutes or until just golden brown on the other side.  Transfer to a cutting board and tent with foil.

Reduce heat to medium and add 1 tbsp butter.  Add garlic and cook until fragrant.  Add the radicchio in batches, tossing until wilted.  Sprinkle with 2 tsp sugar and ½ tsp salt.

Add sundried tomatoes and balsamic vinegar and cook for one minute or until the vinegar evaporates slightly.  Add chicken broth and cook for 2 minutes or until radicchio is tender.  Stir in the basil leaves.

Transfer the radicchio to plates using tongs.  Continue cooking the sauce until it thickens slightly (1 to 2 minutes), and stir in the remaining 1 tbsp butter.

Thinly slice the steaks and add to the plates.  Drizzle with the sauce and top with more sundried tomatoes and basil.
