I going to start by saying I love creamy recipes of all kinds. But this Creamy Mushroom Steak recipe is by far my most favorite recipe. It’s so simple and made with very few affordable ingredients. My family absolutely loves this recipe because it’s something we always like to order when we are out if it’s available on the menu.
A personal side to this recipe, which is why I love it so much, is that this is the first actual steak recipe I learned when I started cooking. Also, when I had my first baby a couple weeks before Valentine’s Day and I wasn’t ready to go out and leave him behind just to go out for dinner. So, I made this recipe for our date night at home on Valentine’s day. It couldn’t be any more perfect and since then, this has been a must recipe to have at our home. Even my older son grew very fond of this recipe ever since he tried it. It’s like the only time he actually eats mushrooms and he loves the rich flavor of the creamy sauce. He also loves steaks and all kinds of red meat. Just like his mama ofcourse. I always pair this recipe with baked parmesan potato wedges. All the ingredients can be found at your local Walmart. If you have been following my blog and Instagram posts, you already know I love shopping at my local Walmart. Mostly because I love doing my one stop shopping and because I can always find high quality produce and meat at a much affordable price.
With just a few ingredients, this classic recipe can be at your table in no time. Plus, prepping for this recipe takes just a few minutes of your time. It’s literally just marinating the meat, slicing the mushrooms and mincing your garlic. I used all Walmart brand products like the Great Value Organic Garlic Powder, Sam’s Choice Black Pepper, Great Value Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Great Value Whipping Cream.
After I shopped for all my ingredients I started by marinating my steaks with some fresh ground Sam’s Choice Black Pepper and salt.
I then pan seared the Angus N.Y. Strip Steaks until they were medium well done. You can add some fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme. I had some fresh plants that I had grabbed from Walmart at the beginning of the spring so I just used those. They really save you so much money because sometimes all you need it one or two stems and end up tossing the rest. The fresh plants are always handy and you can just grab as much as you need for your recipes over time. I also added some fresh garlic cloves with the herbs along with the great value butter I used to pan sear them and add some extra flavors to the steaks. I grabbed the regular cut Angus N.Y Steaks for this recipe from the meat section at Walmart. You can find thick cut as well. But I prefer the thinner cut for this recipe.
Next, I placed the steaks on to the creamy mushroom sauce I prepared. I usually take the steaks out of the pan after I prepare them half way and let them rest until I get the creamy mushroom sauce made. I added just about 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in the same pan to sauté the mushrooms. I then transferred the steaks back on to the pan.
You then cook the steak and the mushroom sauce together until the steaks absorb the creamy sauce and cook until desired level. I usually like mine just about well, but not completely well done to keep the steaks juicy and tender. You can top with some fresh herbs for garnishing purposes before you serve. It’s not required.
As always, I serve The Creamy Mushroom Steak recipe with baked parmesan potato wedges. I don’t add much to the potatoes other than salt, olive oil, very light black pepper and grated parmesan cheese.
I hope you enjoy this fancy lunch/dinner recipe with your families as much as I do at the convenience of your home by shopping all affordable ingredients with just one stop at your local Walmart. I am sure you will be having many family date nights after you give this recipe a try.
