Yonge Street Sirloin with Gremolata and Mushrooms

In honour of Canada’s 150, we’ve planted our stake (steak) by (finally) naming a steak after a famous Canadian icon – the longest (debatable) street in the world! Chef Mills, Executive Chef of the Fairmont Royal York, THANK YOU! The original recipe was adapted to this version for home kitchens by the Canadian Beef Centre of Excellence.

Remove steaks from heat and let rest for 10 minutes.
Pour steak juices in small saucepan with beef broth and boil until reduced to 1/2 cup. Whisk in butter to thicken sauce.
