It is a delicious dish that takes little time to make. It is also great for casual festivities where steak is desired but an extravagant dish is not required.
- 1/2 cup dark lager or pale ale
- 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
- 12 oz. beef flap meat
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tsp. canola or other vegetable oil
- 8 oz. cremini mushrooms, sliced
- 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
- 1 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary
- 4 3/4-inch-thick slices peasant-style bread, such as a Tuscan boule
- 8 slices provolone cheese (about 5 oz.)
- Position a rack about 6 inches from the broiler and heat the broiler on high. In a small bowl, combine the beer, mustard, Worcestershire, and vinegar; set aside.
- Heat a 10- to 11-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the flap meat into pieces to fit in the skillet, if necessary, and season generously with salt and pepper. Turn on your exhaust fan. Add the oil to the hot skillet and swirl to coat. Add the meat and cook, turning about every 2 minutes until 135°F, 5 to 10 minutes total. Transfer to a cutting board, tent with foil, and set aside.
- Reduce the heat to medium and add the mushrooms, onion, and rosemary. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms have released their liquid and are starting to stick to the skillet, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Return the skillet to medium heat, add the beer mixture, and cook, scraping the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spatula, until reduced to a thin glazy consistency, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the mushrooms and onion. Thinly slice the meat across the grain and toss with the mushroom mixture.
- Toast the bread on both sides directly on the rack under the broiler, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a small baking sheet. Distribute the steak mixture among the slices of toast, and top with the cheese. Broil until the cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve
