Few weeks ago, our local grocer had this insane sale on all its steaks, and I got these meaty bad boys for 2 bucks each. TWO BUCKS!$! It was a Valentine’s Day special, and SPECIAL IT WAS! You better believe I stocked up on steaks, and you’ll know I did because, I plan to share another steak recipe next week… and the week after that… and the week after that. We ate a lot of steak this month.

Working off of my Pan Seared Steak with Cognac Sauce recipe, I opted to make this mushroom loaded pan seared sirloin steak deliciousness, reminiscent of your favorite Steak House menu item.

First, let’s discuss about cooking steak in a skillet.

HOW TO COOK STEAK IN A SKILLET

  • Your cast-iron skillet is the ultimate tool for preparing a perfect steak recipe.
  • We start by melting garlicky butter in our skillet, then searing the steaks in said skillet for a few minutes, creating flavorful browning on all sides.
  • When steaks are done, we remove them from the skillet and set aside for a moment.
  • Sliced mushrooms are added to the same skillet and cooked until slightly tender.
  • A splash of evaporated milk or half & half will also be added to the skillet, creating our finished gravy with amazing mushroom flavors.
  • Transfer steaks back into the skillet; spoon the sauce all around the steaks and serve.

When cooking your steak, keep in mind how you want it cooked; rare, medium rare, well done, etc… as this will determine how long you should cook your steaks. Follow these guidelines:

Guide for Steak Doneness
(please use a meat thermometer)

  • 140F internal temperature for RARE
  • 145F internal temperature for MEDIUM RARE
  • 160F internal temperature for MEDIUM
  • 170F internal temperature for WELL DONE

For the mushroom sauce, considering their meaty texture and nutritional benefits – low fat, cholesterol free, a good source of protein, and so on – I almost always use baby portobello in my sauces.

To prepare the sauce, a touch of beef broth, half & half, and some seasonings are added to the mushrooms, creating a tasty and super creamy sauce to go with our steak dinner.

    Sorry your temperatures for the steak are way off. I am a former chef and 140 degrees is not rare. That is medium. More like 120 defeees for rare. Just letting you know.

  2. Kawshiki Nasser

    I made this for the 2 of us this evening. It was DELICIOUS! I had to substitute the half and half with milk and sour cream because that is what I had. A very tasty and easy meal.

  3. Anne Strickland

    Sounds delicious! But I didn’t see beef broth in the ingredient list, I assume it is added with the half and half. How much is “a touch?” Thanks!
