Recipe: Truffle Mushroom Steak

There are many ways to enjoy the wonder that is well-cooked steak. 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. Our Truffle Mushroom Steak will blow your mind.

This indulgent recipe calls for a medium-rare steak that is perfectly juicy with a caramelised crust on the outside. You will need to make sure that your cast-iron pan is smoking hot or your fire is at the right temperature. Remember that resting your steak is an important step to keep your steak tender. Cooking the steak takes less than 10 minutes, giving you the perfect opportunity to fry the mushrooms. Use your choice of truffle oil or truffle-flavoured oil and serve this delicacy to your friends and family.

Our Truffle Mushroom steak is the best way to hero a perfect piece of steak and will give you sweet dreams for days to come.

INGREDIENTS

300 g aged steak of your choice, boneless

olive oil, for drizzling

salt & pepper

30 g butter

large brown mushrooms, sliced

2 sprigs thyme, woody stalks discarded

few drops of truffle oil (or truffle flavoured oil)

METHOD

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.
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.
