Share it

Beef steak with mushroom sauce is a classic dish that is loved by meat lovers all over the world. The juicy, tender beef steak is perfectly complemented by the earthy, flavours of the mushroom sauce. This dish is not only delicious, but it is also easy to make and can be served for any occasion.

To make beef steak with mushroom sauce, you will need a few key ingredients. First and foremost, you will need a high-quality beef steak. Look for a steak that is well-marbled and has a good amount of fat, as this will ensure that your steak is juicy and flavorful. If you cannot find a good quality one or are low on budget, ensure you velvet the meat before you proceed. For every 150-200g of steak, use 2 tbsp baking soda. Rub 1 tbsp on each side of the steak making sure to cover all sides. Place meat in a container and store in the fridge for not less than 4 hours or overnight. When ready, remove from fridge and rinse thoroughly ensuring all baking soda is removed before proceeding.

You will also need mushrooms, butter, garlic, beef broth, onions, balsamic vinegar and heavy cream. Additionally, you can add some herbs and spices, such as thyme, rosemary, and black pepper, to enhance the flavours of the dish.

How to cook Beef Steak

To start, season your beef steak generously with salt and pepper. (Please see the above note if using a tough cut)

1. Heat a skillet over high heat and add some oil. When the oil is hot, add the steak to the skillet and cook it for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until it is cooked to your desired level of doneness.

2. Once the steak is cooked, remove it from the skillet and let it rest for a few minutes while you prepare the mushroom sauce.

3. In the same skillet that you used to cook the steak, add some butter, garlic, and sliced mushrooms. Cook the mushrooms until they are tender and browned, stirring occasionally.

4. Once the mushrooms are cooked, add beef broth and balsamic vinegar to the skillet and let it simmer for a few minutes to reduce and thicken.

5. Transfer the mushrooms to a blender and blend until smooth then transfer back to the pot.

6. Finally, add some heavy cream to the skillet and stir until the sauce is smooth and creamy.

To serve, place the steak on a plate and spoon the mushroom sauce over it. You can garnish with some fresh herbs, such as thyme or rosemary, for added flavour and presentation.

What cuts should I choose?

When selecting your beef steak, it is important to choose a cut of meat that is appropriate for your cooking method. For example, a tenderloin steak is a great choice for pan-searing or grilling, as it is tender and cooks quickly. On the other hand, a tougher cut of meat, such as a flank steak or skirt steak, is better suited for slow-cooking methods, such as braising or stewing. These cuts of meat are flavorful and can be tenderized with a marinade or by cooking them low and slow. In addition to its delicious flavour and versatility, beef steak with mushroom sauce is also a great dish to serve for special occasions.
