Return skillet to heat; increase heat to medium-high. Cook and stir 5 minutes or until browned bits attached to bottom of skillet are dissolved and sherry is reduced to 3 Tablespoons. Stir in onion-mushroom soup mixture; cook and stir an additional 5 minutes or until sauce is reduced to 1/2 C. Carve steak into thin slices; serve with mushroom sauce. Makes 4 servings.
