Steak with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

Primal Steak with Creamy Mushrooms

If you are looking for a tasty steak dish ... then this may be for you! We like to include beef in our menu plans, sometimes as a good Roast Beef dish, sometimes as a casserole, sometimes as a 'plain' steak with salad ... and sometimes with a nice creamy mushroom sauce!

Serves 4
1/4 cup (2 ozs) butter
10 ounces cremini or button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/3 cup heavy (double) whipping cream
4 small New York strip steaks (sirloin) about 6 ounces each
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large saute pan over medium heat, melt butter until hot and frothy. Add mushrooms, sprinkle with salt and pepper and sauté until mushrooms are brown and tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

Add garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in cream, reduce heat to low and simmer until thickened, another 5 minutes or so.

Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium. Season steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. Grill to desired 'done-ness', about 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium rare.

Remove steak and let rest 5 minutes. Spoon mushroom sauce over steaks and serve.

Oooh, now you're talking, I do love a nice piece of steak and creamy mushroom sauce sounds delightful. We used to have steak quite regularly but I can't actually remember the last time we had it now, time to get it back on the menu I think.

Many thanks for your comment, pleased to read that you liked the recipe.
Now when I serve a steak like this, if I do cook chips they are always done using celeriac, you can see a lovely recipe for them here

All the best Jan

As always, many thanks for your comment. The creamy mushroom sauce does work well with this recipe ... and if steak should be on a 'special offer' deal at the shops ... even better!

Hope your Tuesday is going well.

All the best Jan

Hi Jan, Your steak looks wonderful. I believe I've had one steak in the past year. I've been trying to watch my LDL and my sacrifice has really paid off. Perfect cholesterol numbers at my Nov 19 checkup.
