Cast Iron Steak in Red or white Wine

1 tablespoon of butter
1 steak whatever cut you like
1/3 cup wine
Weber Chicago steak seasoning

Melt one tablespoon of butter
Shake Chicago seasoning over melted butter
Place steak over butter and seasoning
Cook on one side for 5 minutes, before you turn pick steak up with folk, add more seasoning  (Add more butter if needed to pan) and turn steak so that both sides are cooked in butter and seasoning,
Pour a 1/3 cup of wine
Cook to your liking

You can add mushrooms or onions or both just add another 1/3 cup of wine.

Making steak in a cast iron pan one night I decided to add  white wine.  The steak and wine became a hit.  My second try at making  the steak I realized I was out of the white wine and used a sweet red.  It was as much a hit as the white wine.  The difference between the white and red wine is that the red gives the steak an interesting well cooked color.  I have found that using the wine actually makes the meat very tender and the seasoning and wine together is a hit!

Enjoy and let me know what you think?
