Pan Seared Butter Steak with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

Pan-Seared Butter Steak with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

Well, steak is something that I love! But unfortunately, the Mister doesn't like it much. So it's a rare scene that we go out to dine in and order a steak.

So one fine day, I was craving for steak so badly. And I was visiting the local grocers. It is an Indian grocery store so when I asked for the steak he just cut me a chunk of meat and gave. I was confused if he heard me right. I wanted ribeye steak and now I have this. He asked me to try this and if it comes out good he would give similar cuts the next time.

I have this problem of not letting go off my cravings.! I had to try it said my heart. So I bought it. This steak might be a sirloin or a fillet mignon. Well, I am not sure. Please correct me if I am wrong. And as this was my experimental steak I thought not to post it on my page /website. But the success of how Juicy and delicious the steak came out didn't stop me from posting it. It was mind-blowing as I nailed it, just like how you get it from restaurants. Alhamdulilah ❤

Now if you ask me how I nailed it, I always read articles etc on how to cook the perfect steak. And summing up all the points, I cooked the steak.  Basically the lesser ingredients you add the tastier it is, here I only added salt and pepper as seasonings and seared them in butter. I like it medium-rare, but here no one would eat if they saw the pink flesh inside so I had to cook it well done! Even though it was a bit chewy, the flavors were insane. Lip-smacking good! I served the steak with mushroom sauce, mashed potatoes, and Rosemary roasted veggies. The perfect meal 🍴 👌

I was so happy that it turned out so good. This plate might look like a lot of hard work. But I guarantee you that that plate of deliciousness took no more than 30 minutes. The mushroom sauce is done in the same pan in which the steaks were seared.
The smell of the steak searing in a pan is just pure BLISS. The recipe for my Rosemary roasted veggies are already on the blog. And the recipe of the creamy mashed potatoes will be uploaded real soon. Let's cook the steak and some mushroom sauce.
