Balsamic Mushroom Sauce for Steak

Balsamic Mushroom Sauce for Steak

This is a really tasty balsamic mushroom sauce for steak recipe. Our thanks go to Irene Linna for the tasty idea of using mushrooms and balsamic vinegar to make this brilliant sauce.

The first thing that you need to do is choose and cook your steaks. As always, choice of cut is down to personal preference, but rump or sirloin steak would go well with this sauce, as would ribeye.

Cook the steak in a frying pan to your own taste – rare, medium or well done – in the normal way.

Once cooked as you like it, put the steak into a warm bowl and let it rest while you make the sauce.

Melt some butter in the warm frying pan and once it is foaming, put in some mushrooms and some chopped onions. Cook them altogether for about 4 minutes until the mushrooms have browned a bit. Then put them into the bowl with the steak to keep warm for a bit longer.

Now you need to add some balsamic vinegar and soy sauce to the pan and scrape all the tasty brown bits from the bottom of the pan! Add about 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and about 100ml of balsamic vinegar. Stir in a little bit of flour to thicken the sauce and then put the steak, mushrooms and onions back into the pan and mix it altogether for 30 seconds.

You should now have created one of the nicest sauces for steak imaginable and will enjoy this delicious meal.
