- Set the steaks out about 1 hour before cooking to allow it come to room temperature. Rub both sides of steaks with salt and pepper.
- In a large nonstick skillet, melt the butter over medium heat, add in the mushrooms and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until mushrooms have become tender and released their liquid. Stir in garlic and cook another minute.
- Stir the flour into the mushrooms and cook for a minute then whisk in the broth and wine. Season with salt, thyme, and basil. Bring to a low simmer and cook until reduced to desired consistency.
- Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.
- While the sauce is simmering on low to thicken, heat a cast iron or nonstick skillet with the 1 TBS oil over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add the seasoned steaks and sear on each side for 2-3 minutes. The amount of cooking time will depend on the thickness of your steaks. Mine were on the thin side and perfectly medium-rare with about 2-3 minutes per side in the skillet.
- Serve steaks with a few spoonfuls of mushroom sauce over the top.
