Porcini Mushroom Steak


  • 2 boneless ribeye or sirloin steaks

  • 1 cup fresh Porcini mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

  • Olive oil for cooking

For the Mushroom Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • 1/4 cup beef or vegetable broth

  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Season the steaks with salt and black pepper on both sides.

  3. Heat a cast-iron skillet or oven-safe pan over high heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil.

  4. Once the skillet is hot, sear the steaks for about 2-3 minutes on each side to develop a nice crust.

  5. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and continue cooking the steaks for 5-7 minutes for medium-rare, or adjust cooking time according to your preference.

  6. While the steaks are in the oven, heat another skillet over medium heat.

  7. Add the butter and sliced Porcini mushrooms. Sauté for about 5-7 minutes until the mushrooms are cooked and slightly golden.

  8. Add the minced garlic and fresh thyme leaves to the mushrooms. Sauté for an additional 1-2 minutes.

  9. Pour in the heavy cream and beef or vegetable broth. Stir and let the sauce simmer for a few minutes until it thickens slightly. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

  10. Once the steaks are done, remove them from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes.

  11. Serve the steaks with a generous spoonful of the Porcini mushroom sauce drizzled over the top.
