Step 1: Cook pasta

In a large pot, bring well-salted water to a boil. Cook fettuccine according to package directions, reserving 1/2 cup pasta water. Drain pasta and toss with oil to prevent sticking and keep in empty cooking pot.

Step 2: Season and sear steak

Heat a cast-iron skillet on the stove to medium-high heat. Season steak all over with Pikes Peak Butcher’s Rub. Brown butter in skillet, about 5 min. Sear steak in brown butter, about 2 min. per side or until desired doneness is reached. Set on a plate to rest.

Step 3: Make sauce

To pan with brown butter and steak juice, add mushrooms and cook for 5 min. until beginning to soften. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 min. Deglaze pan with white wine and reduce by half, about 1 min. Add heavy cream, pasta water, parmesan, and 1 tsp. Pikes Peak Butcher’s Rub. Stir well and cook until reduced and thick, about 5 min.

Step 4: Assemble and serve

Add sauce to reserved pasta and toss to coat. Serve with sliced steak and garnish with sage.
