Truffle Mushroom Steak this weekend!

Looking for an alternative for this weekend’s steak or braai?

A steak doesn’t always need an actual sauce. This luxurious combo of truffle oil and pan-fried large brown mushrooms on a perfectly cooked matured steak are the stuff dreams are made of.

Truffle mushroom steak

Ingredients: (serves 1, adjust accordingly for more people)

300 g aged steak of your choice, boneless

olive oil, for drizzling

salt & pepper

30 g butter

a few large brown mushrooms, sliced

2 sprigs thyme, woody stalks discarded

a few drops of truffle oil (or truffle flavoured oil)

Method:

  1. Drizzle the steak with oil and season with salt & pepper. Braai over hot coals or grill in a piping hot griddle pan, until cooked to your liking (3,5 minutes a side for a 3 cm thick steak, for medium rare). Remove and leave to rest while you prepare the mushrooms.
  2. Heat the butter over high heat in a pan, then fry the mushrooms with the thyme until golden brown on all sides. Season with salt & pepper. Remove from the heat, then add a few drops of truffle oil and stir to mix.
  3. Top the rested steak with the hot truffle mushrooms and serve at once.
