  2. Add remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil to a large mixing bowl. Add paprika, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, basil and marjoram and steak. Marinate in fridge for 30 minutes.

  3. In a large frying pan add olive oil and heat over high heat until oil is smoking. Add steak and sear for 1 minute per side. Remove from heat and slice very thinly across the grain when cool enough to handle.

  4. In same skillet with juices from steak, add mushrooms and cook until they start to release juices. Add onions and red pepper, sautéing for 2-3 minutes until tender and seasoning with salt and pepper.
