3 tbsp butter, divided
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup merlot
2 tbsp heaving whipping cream
1/8 tsp salt

In a small skillet, cook steaks in 1 tbsp butter and oil over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness. Remove and keep warm.

Beef Fajitas with wasabi

Wasabi is Japanese horseradish and it goes very well with beef! It's powerful. (You've been warned!)

1 large sweet red pepper, julienned
12 green onions with tops, cut in half lengthwise
2 tbsp sesame oil, divided
1 pound beef stir-fry strips
2 tsp cornstarch
3 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tsp prepared wasabi
2 tsp minced fresh gingerroot
1 tsp minced garlic
8 flour tortillas, warmed
1 cup coleslaw mix

In a large skillet, stir-fry pepper and onions in 1 tbsp oil for 3 minutes or until tender; remove and set aside. In the same skillet, stir-fry beef in remaining oil for 5 minutes or until no longer pink.

In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, soy sauce, wasabi, ginger and garlic until blended; pour over beef. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Return red pepper mixture to the pan and heat through.

Spoon 1/2 cup of the beef mixture down the center of each tortilla; top with 2 tbsp of the coleslaw mix. Roll up tortillas and serve immediately.
