I know this is at least a couple holidays late, but I just saw this while looking through my "Food" photo folder. This is the traditional (at least ours) Memorial Day Steak Marsala. Actually, we make this the night before Memorial Day.

Pictured above is a pan roasted New York strip steak that's cooked first and then set aside. In the same pan, we added a pat of butter, then the mushrooms. After the mushrooms are cooked, we deglazed the pan by adding approximately ½ cup of marsala wine and ½ cup beef stock. Let it reduce by half, and then add up to ¼ cup of heavy cream. Season the sauce to taste.

Angel hair pasta and roasted asparagus were the accompaniments to the steak. The pasta was cooked according to the box directions, and the asparagus was roasted with finely minced garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in a 450­° oven.

And voila! A simple, delicious meal to be had by 6.2 hungry people.
