Steak Au Poivre & Mashed Potatoes

I always love cooking this one, but it was a challenge to try to find a suitable substitute for the liquor.  It turned out really great though, I was pleased.  The zucchinis and dried cherries were a wonderful addition :)  Enjoy!

3-4 Steaks
Seasoning (Mediterranean Spiced Sea Salt, and Mango Lime rub)
3 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 Zucchini (Peeled and sliced)
5 Mushrooms (sliced)
1/3 Cup Whole Raspberry Syrup
2/3 Cup Heavy Cream
1/4 Cup Dried Cherries
1 tsp Dried Tarragon

Add 2 Tbsp Butter to a heavy bottom skillet.  Season the steak and add to the skillet.  Cook over med-high heat turning once for a total of 6-8 minutes for medium-rare (Cook longer for more well done steaks).  Transfer the steaks to a plate and keep warm in the microwave.
Add the remaining butter to the skillet and turn heat down to medium.  Add the zucchinis and mushrooms to soften for about 1-2 minutes.  Add all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.  Lower the heat and simmer until slightly thickened.  (1-3 minutes).  Turn off the heat and return the steaks and any remaining juices to the pan to let the sauce soak in.  Serve by spooning sauce and veggies over the steaks.
