Chuck Steak with Wine Sauce

I was originally hoping to make this with a cognac based sauce, but a survey of my cupboards revealed  serious lack of alcohol in my house, so it turned into a wine based sauce instead.  I definitely wasn't disappointed by the change however, as it was delicious.

1 Tbsp Butter
1/4 Cup Green Onions (chopped)
1 tsp Brown Sugar (packed)
1 Cup Beef Broth
1 1/2 Cup Red Wine (I used a Barbera)
1/4 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream

1 Tbsp Butter
4 chuck steaks
Seasoning (Mediterranean Spiced Sea Salt)

Melt 1 Tbsp Butter in a sauce pan over medium heat.  Add the green onions and saute' for about 3 minutes.  Add brown sugar and stir for about 1 minute.  Add beef broth and the wine, simmer on low heat for 20 minutes to reduce and thicken the sauce.  Whisk in the cream.
Add the butter to a skillet.  Season the steaks and add to the pan.  Cook on med-high heat for abotu 5 minutes per side (medium-rare) or longer.  Transfer steaks to a plate.  Add the sauce to the skillet and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits in the pan.  Season  a touch for flavoring.  Serve by cutting/scoring steaks and drizzling the wine sauce over top.  Enjoy!
