Steak with Herb Sauteed Mushrooms

If you’re planning a romantic dinner for two this month,  you can’t go wrong with this classic steak and mushroom dish from Bell’alimento

Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms by Bellalimento

Steak and mushrooms go hand in hand in my opinion, personally I don’t have one without the other. It’s very easy to make a delicious steakhouse steak with a side of sauteed mushrooms at home for a fraction of the cost of what you’d spend at a restaurant. 

You start out with button mushrooms. I like to shave off the stem so that it’s flush with the caps. You can absolutely remove the stem if you prefer or leave it on completely. Then they’re sauteed simply in a few tablespoons of herb butter. That’s all there is to it. You can buy herb butter already prepared or make your own.

Cook your steaks while the mushrooms are sauteing. Remember to let the steak rest before serving/slicing. Top the steaks with the mushrooms and don’t forget the butter in the pan.

Steak with Herb Sauteed Mushrooms

Yield: 2
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes

3 tablespoons herb butter
6 ounces button mushrooms – whole
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 fillets
kosher salt/black pepper

Melt herb butter in a small-medium saute pan. Add mushrooms. Cook until mushrooms have softened. Stirring as necessary.

WHILE mushrooms are cooking, melt butter in cast iron skillet. Season fillets with salt and pepper. Cook fillets over medium heat until seared on both sides. Continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 145 for medium.

The USDA recommends steaks and roasts be cooked to 145°F (medium) and then rested for at least 3 minutes.

Evenly distribute sauteed mushrooms over fillets.

Mushroom Bruschetta from Chez Us

As we prepare to entertain family and friends at holiday gatherings, we’re always looking for tasty, unique appetizers that are easy to prepare, yet impressive enough to serve your guests on a special occasion! This Mushroom Bruschetta recipe from Chez Us is a delicious option.

The other evening we had some friends stopping by, and we wanted to put out a few little nibbles to serve alongside a glass of wine. I don’t know about you, but I get tired of serving the same old cheese plate, and I am sure my guests are tired of eating the same old cheese plate! I am always on the lookout for a couple new and exciting go-to appetizer recipes for impromptu dinner parties.

This recipe is easily made at the drop of a hat when mushrooms, as well as baguettes, are a staple in your house. I had a portobella and oyster mushrooms left over from an earlier brunch recipe, so I decided to use them. I like the earthy texture of the portobello and the delicate texture of small oyster mushrooms, and thought the two would be perfect together.

Shallots and garlic are quickly sauteed with mushrooms to make this easy topping. I wanted the flavor of the mushrooms to come through, so I kept the seasonings simple, with just a sprinkle of black pepper and fresh thyme. Once the mushrooms were cooked, I deglazed the pan with a high quality balsamic, and then tossed the mushrooms with the rich reduction. Simply serve on the toasted baguette.

With the holidays upon us, it is nice to have something simple to make. This recipe is very easy to make and can be presented elegantly or a bit rustic as I did here. Enjoy!

Mushroom Bruschetta

1 portobello mushroom, stem removed, and cut into small pieces
handful of oyster mushrooms, on the smaller side, or slice larger ones into stems
2 small garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
black pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1/4 cup high quality balsamic vinegar
1 baguette sliced thinly
olive oil
1 large garlic clove

Heat oven to broil.  Rub each slice of baguette with the large piece of garlic.  Using a pastry brush lightly coat each slice with some olive oil.  Toast in the oven until golden.  Remove and set aside.  Gently heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large frying pan over low heat, add the shallots and minced garlic, slowly cook until caramelized in color;  about 10 minutes.  Add the portobello mushroom, and cook until lightly browned;  about 5 minutes.  Add the oyster mushrooms, stir, and cook for another 3 minutes. Add the thyme and season with some black pepper.  Remove the mushrooms from the pan and set aside in a bowl.  Add the balsamic vinegar to the frying pan, and bring to medium heat.  Using a wooden spoon, keep stirring until reduced in half, about 4 minutes.  Lower the heat, and stir the mushrooms and their juices into the reduction.  Serve on the slices of toasted baguette.
