I love steak. On my first trip to France, I felt like I had stepped into my own version of Heaven. At the first French bistro I visited, I chose to order the entrecote steak with mushroom. That entrecote was a delicious premium cut of beef. A fantastic boneless ribeye steak covered with a delicious creamy mushroom sauce. And that delicious mushroom sauce covering the entrecote steak was the perfect sauce, made with red wine, shallots, beef stock, and butter. It was absolutely extraordinary. It completely transforms the steak into an irresistible, restaurant-worthy meal. A meal that would be perfect for spoiling a king.
Entrecote steak is typically served with mashed potatoes or French fries. I like my potatoes baked in the oven while I prepare and cook the entrecote steak, so that the two are ready at the same time. Other than the fries, this recipe for entrecote steak with mushroom could be considered a one-pan sort of meal, as the steak and sauce are created in the same pan. The steak is seasoned and seared in a hot, cast-iron skillet until it’s browned and cooked to your desire. It’s then removed, at which point the shallots are added in.
In this recipe, we have replaced the traditional red wine with cognac to give it a more French variation. This is a mouthwatering combination of rich brown mushroom sauce and tender ribeye. This recipe for entrecote steak with mushroom will be ready in just 30 minutes. I can’t wait to eat it!
The mushroom sauce
You can make the mushroom sauce in many styles, but always mushrooms are the primary ingredient. So ensure you get good quality and fresh mushrooms. Having a good mushroom sauce will help you with other dishes as well. It can be served with veal, chicken and poultry, pasta, and other foods such as vegetables.
You will make your sauce by mixing mushrooms, butter, cream, olive oil, red wine, and pepper. You can experiment with a wide variety of variations possible with additional ingredients such as shallot, garlic, lemon juice, flour (to thicken the sauce), chicken stock, saffron, basil, parsley, or other herbs. We like our mushroom sauce prepared as a brown sauce.
Mushroom sauces have been cooked for hundreds of years. United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower a well-known steak lover, was quite fond of mushroom sauce. He would have loved this recipe.
