Sirloin Steak Topped with Mushroom Sauce
It is all in the sauce, most say when it comes to a good Sirloin Steak bathed in delicious Mushroom Sauce. I have to agree. The thick Sirloin Steak is simply seasoned with salt and pepper, and cooked in an oiled smoking hot pan for few minutes on both sides.
Those preferring a medium to well-cooked steak could go ahead and cook it further on lower heat to avoid burning it from the outside.
The magic, so to speak, is in the sauce, and yet its recipe is easy and simple!
The recipe uses 4 Sirloin Steaks of 1 inch thickness. We pat them dry and season them before frying. The sauce is prepared in two parts. That is to simmer the cooked steaks for a minute in one part, allowing them to absorb the juicy aroma. Only then we combine both culinary preparations of the sauce.
The fragrantly cooked garlic, onions, and mushrooms are stirred in a seasoned sauce of beef broth, butter, flour, and Steak Sauce. All is simmered nicely for few minutes to then top the steaks to a succulent outcome.
I love this particular Sirloin Steak with a fresh salad on the side and Puree Fragrant with Herbs, Garlic and Spring Onions.
Enjoy it. Life is good!
Sirloin Steak with Mushroom Sauce
- 4 Beef Sirloin Steaks patted dry, and seasoned with salt and pepper
For the Mushroom Sauce
- 2 1/2 cups Beef Broth
- 200 gr sliced Mushrooms
- 1 Onion (medium) sliced
- 2 cloves Garlic minced
- 3 tbsps Butter (unsalted)
- 3 tbsps Flour to thicken the sauce
- 2 tbsps Steak Sauce
- 2 tbsps Vegetable Oil for cooking
- Salt and Pepper to season
- 1 tbsp Fresh parsley, very finely chopped. can be substituted with Dill.
Cooking the Steaks
Sweep the pan with 1/2 the oil, and heat on high heat. Cook the steaks for about 3 minutes on each side or till your liking. Set aside on a plate, and cover with aluminium foil.
Preparing The Sauce
In the same pan, heat the other half of the oil, and cook the onions until translucent. Stir in the garlic and cook for few seconds until fragrance. Follow with the mushrooms and cook, mixing gently until they soften up into a golden color. Set aside.
Warm a saucepan on medium-high heat. Add the butter, reduce to heat to medium, and allow the butter to melt without burning, stirring regularly.
Stir in the flour for about a minute, mixing well. Pour in gradually the broth, gently stirring continuously until the sauce thickened. Lower the heat, add the Steak Sauce, season with salt and pepper, and stir well.
Enhancing the Steaks and Serving
Gently drop the pieces of steaks one by one in the sauce, turn up the heat to medium, and allow them to absorb some of the sauce flavor, for not more than 1 minute.
Remove them and set each nicely on a serving plate.
Now, pour in that sauce the mixture of mushrooms, onions and garlic. Stir gently, and simmer for about 3 minutes. Turn off the heat.
With a serving spoon, divide the Sauce with the contents on top of each steak, allowing the liquid to bathe the steaks.
Garnish with the chopped parsley, and serve with your choice of salad and potatoes on the side.
