Cube Steak with Mushroom-Sherry Sauce

4 4-ounce Cube Steaks
3/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
8 ounces sliced mushrooms
1 large Shallot, thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon Corn Starch
1/4 teaspoon Thyme
1/2 cup Sherry (I use cooking sherry)
1/2 cup beef broth
2 Tablespoons Sour Cream

Sprinkle steaks with 1/2 teaspoon pepper and salt.  Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add steaks and cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through (about 1-2 minutes per side for medium).  Cook in several batches if necessary.  Transfer to plate and cover to keep warm.

Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan.  Add mushrooms, shallot and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper; cook stirring, until the mushrooms are golding brown and release their liquid (4-5 minutes).  Sprinkle with corn starch and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.  Add thyme, sherry and broth.  Bring to boil and cook until thickened.  Remove from heat and add sour cream.

Serve the steaks with sauce.
