Mushrooms and Onions for Steak

A simple way to add some veggies and amazing flavours to your steak. These sautéed mushrooms and onions are meant as a topping for steak but can be used in many other ways.

The Recipe:
1/2 lb. sliced mushrooms (such as crimini or button)
1 medium onion, halved and thickly sliced
2 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. garlic salt

1. Melt the butter and olive oil together in a frying pan and add the mushrooms and onions.

2. Let them cook slowly, over medium heat, until the mushrooms are getting a little brown and the onions are nice and soft, about 20 minutes.

3. While there’s still some moisture left from the mushrooms, add the Worcestershire sauce and garlic salt.

4. The mixture will thicken and it’s ready to serve with grilled steak.

My Experience:

This recipe makes 4 servings if served with steak. You can use the leftovers for omelets or simply serve as a side with eggs.

Make sure you cook them low and slow. You want to caramelize the onions, not fast fry them. I actually cooked them at medium-low for about 30 minutes. The onions and mushrooms will significantly reduce (as you can see in the pictures above).

I obviously served these with steak and some crispy Baked French Fries but used pepper, onion salt, parsley and garlic powder as seasoning on the fries. The picture is of my boyfriend’s steak, which is cooked blue. That is why it is so pink/pale but that is how he likes it!
