Just a quick post tonight about out fantastic dinner. Charles had picked up strip steaks and was dying to grill after a busy day in the garden. Sautéed mushrooms and onions sounded like a nice accompaniment so we decided to take it a step further and make a spicy mix to smother on top. Cook your steaks as desired. We like ours medium rare and cooked over charcoal; but even skillet seared or baked will work wonderfully.
Strip Steak Smothered with Mushrooms and Onions
- 2 Vidalia onions
- 1/4 cup bacon grease
- 2 Tbs butter
- 12 o.z. Portabella mushrooms
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 – 1 tsp crushed red ~ adjust according to your taste
- Steaks of choice grilled to perfection
In large skillet over medium low heat melt butter and bacon fat. Add onions and mushrooms; cover and cook for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
Remove lid and season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Continue simmering over low heat about 5 more minutes.
Serve over cooked steaks; this should make plenty for 4 – 6 steaks. We grilled our steaks to a medium rare finish and made some fantastic potato skins to go along with.
