Cook for 3 minutes, turn and top each steak with 1 tablespoon cheese. Reduce heat to medium and cover. Cook 2 minutes or until internal temperature of steak registers 145 degrees F. Remove to a plate and loosely cover.

4. Add remaining 2 teaspoons oil and mushrooms to skillet; cook over medium-high heat 3 minutes. Stir in remaining cup broth and vinegar; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
