Steak with Mushroom Sauce

Jump to Recipe

This steak with mushroom sauce recipe will not require steak sauce. It’s built into the recipe. The secret ingredient is Eastern Shore Honey.

In the midst of winter, we crave comfort food. The very definition of comfort food is “food that provides consolation or a feeling of well-being, typically any with high sugar or other carbohydrate content and associated with childhood or home cooking.” dictionary.com

Though we limit our intake of red meat, the idea of steak with mushroom sauce sounds enticing just about now. Choose a filet of beef for the healthiest choice, if you are health-minded. This recipe is fast, easy and delicious.

This recipe is brought to you by my lifelong friend Lisa Gallina. We lived together right after college for a while and she cooked dinner almost every night. Lucky me! It was like moving away from home to another home with a different and much for fun mother.

She wrote last week to tell me that she made the BEST steak with red wine mushroom sauce using some of our Clover Honey as the star ingredient and here we recreate her steps.
