Bringing the Sauce to Life

Perfecting Your Steak

When it comes to seasoning your steak, simplicity is key. A great steak deserves minimal seasoning to let the rich flavors shine through. A marinade or a dry rub with salt, pepper, and garlic powder will suffice. For an extra touch, rub olive oil on both sides and add spices like Italian seasoning, paprika, chili powder, garlic salt, or a Cajun dry rub.

Cooking Mushrooms

Thickening Your Mushroom Sauce

If you prefer a thicker mushroom sauce, there are two excellent methods:

  1. Create a slurry by mixing equal parts cornstarch and water. Add this mixture to the sauce as it cooks and thickens.
  2. Allow the sauce to simmer until it reduces down further, naturally thickening it to your desired consistency.

Expert Tips to Elevate Your Sauce

Upgrade your mushroom sauce with these expert tips:

  • Make it cheesy! Add a couple of tablespoons of freshly grated parmesan cheese or sprinkle parmesan on top of the sauce after spooning it over your steak.
  • Experiment with different mushroom varieties. Feel free to mix and match or use your favorite mushrooms. Avoid using dried mushrooms unless you’ve soaked them beforehand.
  • Store any leftover sauce in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat it by microwaving for short intervals, stirring in between, until it reaches the desired temperature. Alternatively, gently warm it in a pot on the stove over medium heat.
