SIRLOIN STEAK WITH MUSHROOMS

A tender, meaty steak in full-flavored creamy gravy packed with fresh mushrooms and garlic. This easy, yet extraordinary meal is prepared in just one pan and it’s done in under 30 minutes.

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:

How to Tell if Your Steak is Cooked: 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.

  1. Simple to make, outstanding! All 3 of my children and my hubby loved it. Will be making again! Thanks

  2. Iโ€™ve never left a comment on one of these before, but this was so awesome. That mushroom sauce is so easy and so delicious. Thank you for the recipe!

      That’s great to hear! I am very happy you enjoyed this recipe! Thank you so much for chiming in! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Sauce was so good! I know someone mentioned the sauce was a little thin, I sprinkled grated parmesan to thicken up a bit. Turned out amazing! Wish I could post a photo

  4. This recipe is just fine. It was a hearty meal, fit more for a late fall evening than a summer night, but still great. I am left wondering about starting the sear with butter. Most people say to add butter after the steak is nearly done. The recipe turned out well, but did I just break a cardinal rule of cooking?
