- Use your fingers to press the steak seasoning onto both sides of the steaks. If using top loin steaks, cut each steak in half crosswise. In a large skillet, cook steaks in hot butter over medium heat to desired doneness, turning once. For tenderloin steaks, allow 10 to 13 minutes for medium-rare (145 degrees F) to medium (160 degrees F). For top loin steaks, allow 12 to 15 minutes for medium-rare to medium. Transfer steaks to a warm serving platter; reserving the drippings in the skillet. Keep warm.
- Add oil to drippings in skillet. Add mushrooms, leek and thyme. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in tomato juice. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 to 3 minutes more or till leek is tender. Spoon mushroom mixture over the meat. Serve with roasted potatoes, if you like. Makes 4 servings.
