Grilled Steaks with Mushroom Sauce
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
Loved the sauce!
I'm not much of a steak fan but my family is. I wanted something that featured steak with a little 'extra'. I really loved this mushroom sauce. The flavors were really great and everyone was happy with it!
I was looking for something different to try with steak for dinner and found this recipe! Like others, I added a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce up. I forgot I had asparagus so I also added that. Instead of Dijon mustard (since I didn't have any) I used a brown mustard with horseradish. I would make this again, just wish it was a little thicker.
Like calgarymom, I was expecting it to be a thick, creamy sauce. So I added some cream, and dissolved some cornstarch in the broth. I used a horseradish mustard instead of the Dijon since the green market in town had none, and my fiancé and I enjoyed the bite it gave the sauce. I'm still fairly new to cooking, and have had quite a few failures in trying to find a good steak sauce ( my fiancé really loves steak so I try to find different ways to serve it) it came out a touch salty at first (I didn't realize how salty the broth was so I seasoned without tasting) so I added some white wine towards the end. It turned out great, and was a big hot with my fiancé.
This is simply a bland recipe, copied by several others. The main thing is the quality of the steak you buy. Forget Wal-Mart unless you like a tire inner-tube with you meal and I mean one of their claimed best steaks.. One should go to one of the many grill/bbq sites to improve this recipe.
Have made this many times since finding it last year. It is always a hit! Thanks CalgaryMom for the suggestion of adding sour cream. I'll try it next time that way.It also works well on hamburgers- I'm not a big fan of the usual ketchup, mustard, mayo, pickle relish combos.
I always keep a jar of minced garlic in my refrigerator so I added about a tsp. to the mushrooms. But I totally enjoyed this recipe! It was quick & delicious!
We use the finger test for testing the steaks' doneness. I've made this recipe twice. The first time, I made the sauce exactly as the recipe said. My husband and 2 friends loved it. I did not. I expected a creamy sauce. So last night when I made it, I added some sour cream, some ground pepper & a little bit of cornstarch to thicken. The spices in the sauce are delicious, and last night the sauce was truly a restaurant quality sauce. Loved it. TFS!
Fast and delicious - the sauce is subtle but very flavorful. Restaurant quality!
