Pan-fried Steak with Mushroom Onion Sauce Recipe

Friday, July 23, 2010 | Labels: , |

This recipe is something I created on the fly as I really felt like having steak - I was lucky as I had mushrooms and fresh onions in the fridge. This steak is great served on top of pasta or just simply on its' own. This is a quick and easy sauce that goes well with chicken as well - I think cleaning or tidying up the fridge always gives me good ideas when it comes to creating quick recipes as there is a dual objective - apart from cooking tasty food, the other objective is to maximise the usage of the ingredients left in the fridge before they go bad! Garnish with some chopped chives or green onions.


If you don't have onions handy, you can substitute with shallots, where the latter will have a slightly stronger flavour.


Steaks (I used rib-eye)

For the sauce:

1/4 onion, sliced
10 button mushrooms, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup of white wine
Salt, to taste
1/2 cup of butter
1-2 tsps corn starch (to thicken the sauce) - optional
Chives, chopped (garnish) - optional


Cook the steak according to your desired method. I merely pan-fried the steaks with some butter. Saute the garlic, onions and mushrooms together until fragrant. Next, turn the heat to the lowest and add the white wine. Allow to simmer until the liquid is reduced by about half. Now, add the butter into the pan and stir slowly till all the butter is melted. Add salt, to taste. Add some corn starch (1-2 tsps) to thicken the sauce - this is optional. Spoon mixture on top of the steaks and garnish with some chives or green onions if you wish.
