This recipe is part of a regimen I feed to add weight to my CF DDF508, GERD, CFRD 35 y/o husband.


2 steaks (any kind)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons EVOO, divided

1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme, or 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 cup dry sherry
1/4 cup beef broth

Sprinkle steaks with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and salt. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large skillet over medium heat.
Cook steaks method of choice – grill, stovetop – until done to your liking.
Transfer steaks to plate.
Add remaining 2 teaspoons of oil to the pan.
