Steak in Creamy Cajun Shrimp Sauce (Surf and Turf)

ingredients
  1. 2 tablespoons oil
  2. 1 pound steak (such as strip loin, rib eye, etc.)

cajun seasoning to taste
  1. 2 tablespoons butter
  2. 8 ounces shrimp, peeled and deviened
  3. 4 cloves garlic
  4. 1/4 cup chicken broth (or dry white wine)
  5. 1 cup heavy cream
  6. 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  7. 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning (or to taste)
  8. 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan cheese), grated
  9. 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  10. 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped

directions
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the steaks and sear until lightly browned on both sides and cooked to the desired level of doneness, before setting aside.
  • Reduce the heat to medium, add the butter and let it melt before adding the shrimp and cooking until just pink on both sides, about 1-2 minutes per side, and set aside.
  • Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about a minute.
  • Add the broth and deglaze the pan by scraping up any brown bits from the bottom with a wooden spoon as the broth sizzles.
