Strip Steak Smothered with Mushrooms and Onions

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.
