A steak and mushroom recipe is all you were looking for when you want a homemade meal and a delicious treat. But not everyone likes to cook for hours after a long day at work, so making a steak dinner sounds crazy. The thing is, this recipe will not take much time at all, and you will end up with a gourmet meal.
This Classic Steak And Mushroom Recipe Is All You Need
Gather your ingredients!
First, you must buy a good piece of steak, such as a NY strip, but anything that you like will do. If you aren’t a fan of beef, try a good pork chop, or a chicken breast.
As for the mushrooms, they will be the central element of this meal, so go for your favorite. Some good ideas include baby Bella, Portobello, oyster, shiitake, or lion’s mane. The thicker and softer mushrooms, the better they will be in a sauce.
For the sauce, consider adding beef broth, garlic, white wine, tarragon, and pepper. You can add any other spices you like, such as thyme, parsley, chives, and even some rosemary.
To get the best flavor, you can marinate your steak with salt and pepper ahead of time, letting it absorb the flavors. The cooking of the mushrooms should not take long at all, but plan for at least 5 minutes in the end, so they are warm and don’t wrinkle. You can cook the shallots, garlic, and other herbs together with the mushrooms, but make sure not to overdo it.
You can serve this dish with roasted fingerling potatoes, white rice, mashed potatoes, or even over egg noodles. And if you are wondering, this recipe pairs well with good red wine.
Next time your partner suggests a fancy outing to a restaurant, why not surprise them with this delicious and quick recipe?
