Grilled Steaks with Mushroom Piquant

Prep time: about 20-25 minutes.  Serves 2.

  • 3/4 lb grilling steaks (strip, ribeye, tenderloin) {2 steaks}
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 8 oz sliced baby portabellas
  • 1/2 cup good red wine
  • 1 cup beef gravy
  • 1 tsp Dijon (or spicy) mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Creole or Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp butter


  1. Preheat grill pan on medium-high heat (or preheat grille).
  2. Season steaks with salt and pepper.
  3. Place steaks in grill pan (or on grill); grill 3-4 minutes on each side, or until 145 degrees F (for medium-rare).  Let steaks stand about 5-10 minutes before serving.
  4. Preheat medium saucepan on medium-high 2-3 minutes.  Place oil in pan, then add mushrooms.  Cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned.  Stir in wine; cook and stir 1-2 minutes until liquid has reduced by about one-half.
  5. Whisk in gravy, mustard, and Creole seasoning; cook and stir 3-4 minutes or until hot.  Remove sauce from heat; whisk in butter.  Drizzle sauce over steaks; serve.

Note: could easily double the meat and serve 4 without making additional sauce.
