Yes, you read it right this recipe is made of Beef with Mushroom Cream Sauce. Last week I posted a beef recipe the Twice Cooked Beef, it was great for a special occasion. The steak is flavorful, tender, and juicy. I love it! The disadvantage is that it takes plenty of time to prepare. Yes! it takes a long time! So, today I’ll make a beef recipe that is simple and delicious with a quick and easy homemade sauce.
This Beef with Mushroom Cream Sauce is easy to prepare and not time-consuming, it can be done for 20 minutes. If you are a steak and gravy fun this recipe is calling your name!
An ultimate lunch! Ribeye is the choice for this recipe, but you can also use porterhouse, sirloin, or lump. I do agree that this cut of beef is too way expensive but best steak to cook. They stay tender and juicy compared to other parts of the steak.
You can start with seasoning the steak with salt and pepper. Now its time To cook the steak. Preheat your lightly oiled frying pan until just smoking. Add only two slices of steak in at a time to get the perfect sear.
Then we prepare the Mushroom Cream Sauce.
To make a perfect mushroom cream sauce, keep all the juices from the steak you cooked in the pan. That’s where all the flavor is for your Mushroom Cream Sauce. Add garlic then after 30 seconds you can add the sliced mushroom, cooked it for 3 minutes until softened and creamy. Finally, I will add butter and flour and seasoned it according to your taste.
What’s good with this mushroom creamy sauce? You have the option to add the steak back into the pan and allow the sauce to seep into them or serve them with gravy on the side. You will be the one to decide what’s best for you. I pick the second option.
