Tuesday, July 14, 2020
Stove Top Sirloin Steak Marsala is one of my favorite comfort foods and the easiest one-pan meal.

Come see how easy this is to make a tougher cut of steak into a delicious meal!

When I was growing up, I would come home from school and the aroma was just mouth-watering when that door opened.

The house always smelled so good, no matter what mom made it always was a fabulous meal.

We have always loved using Marsala wine in sauces and even desserts, it's a flavor that subtle and enhances many Italian meals.

Some of our favorites with Marsala in it are this Easy Chicken Marsala Sauce, Slow Cooker Rump Roast Marsala, Rice Marsala Almondine, and even these delicious desserts like this Cannoli Pie, have it in them!

Take a quick look at the ingredients and see just how simple this economical meal is and if you aren't a huge steak lover just use chicken or pork!

Easy Recipes

I love all in one pan meals, they are so easy, and when you're in a hurry with just a few pantry ingredients on hand you can make what tastes like a gourmet meal!

The slow simmer in that delicious Steak Marsala Sauce made any inexpensive cut of meat tender so use any kind you prefer, I even use a London broil when on sale.

As the years past, I will always remember that trick.

I tend to saute the meat first and on a busy day, throw everything in the slow cooker.

Pans and Cooking Methods

Mom didn't have a slow cooker in the 1950s.

She used a cast iron pan or stainless steel pan and either one would do the trick on getting that meat fork-tender.

You can also bake this in the oven with all the same ingredients in a large deep baking pan set it on 325 for around 1 1/2 hours depending on the thickness of the steak.

Lastly, you can slow cook in an instant pot or regular cooker on low 6 hours or high around 4 hours.
