  1. Place porcini mushrooms in a small bowl; cover with boiling water to rehydrate. Cover and let stand for 30 minutes or until tender.
  2. Drain, reserving the liquid; rinse mushrooms. Thinly slice; set aside.
  3. Combine 3 teaspoons flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge steaks in flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
  4. Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cook steaks for 4-5 minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 135 degrees F with meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the steak. Remove from heat and keep warm, tenting with aluminum foil.
  5. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté for 2-3 minutes or until onion is tender.
  6. Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, porcini, shiitake, cremini mushrooms and thyme; sauté for 4-5 minutes or until mushrooms release moisture and darken.
  7. Evenly sprinkle remaining 1 teaspoon flour; cook 1 minute stirring constantly.
  8. Stir in wine; cook for 1 minute.
  9. Add broth; bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes or until thickened.
