    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat the grill, and set the oven rack about 8cm from the heat source.
    2. Trim fat from steak. Place steak on cold tin; grill for 5 minutes. Turn, and grill until desired degree of doneness - 3 to 7 additional minutes for rare, 8 to 10 additional minutes for medium.
    3. Make the sauce while the steak is cooking. Melt butter in a small saucepan, and add mushrooms and onion; cook and stir until tender. Stir in Marsala, water, parsley, beef stock concentrate and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, until liquid is reduced to 175ml, about 4 minutes.
    4. Slice steak, and serve with Marsala sauce.

    Fast, easy and good. I doubled the amount of marsala, water, and beef base. I added a little more mushrooms and onions.Sauce added a lot of flavor to the steak.  -  16 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought this was excellent with my grilled tenderloins. I didn't have any mushrooms so I just left those out and I added a bit more marsala since it reduced to almost nothing. The flavor was fantastic and I poured some of it over my baked potato too. Great, guilt free sauce since no butter is used.  -  20 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy and delicious. On Thursday nights, I cook for my husbands buddies. He sets the table, and I prepare the meal. I marinate the steak and he grills. The Marsala Wine sauce was an afterthought. So glad I did. The sauce complimented the steak unbelieveably. Side dishes were baked asparagus spears wilth balsamic vinegar and soy sauce, stuffed sweet potatoes with brown sugar, pecans and marshmellows, and homemade pecan pie... I didn't have to wash the dishes and clean up the kitchen. They did.. !!!!  -  20 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
