Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots, thyme, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallots are tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat and remove the thyme sprigs. Add the vinegar and butter and stir until melted. Transfer to a small bowl.
  2. Wipe out the skillet and heat 1 teaspoon of the remaining oil over medium heat. Season the steak with ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a second large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the watercress and cook, tossing, until tender, 2 to 4 minutes more. Serve the steak with the watercress mixture and top with the shallots.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
