Spice-Rubbed Steak with Sautéed Wild Mushrooms

By Logo inline

We love the flavor of wild mushrooms with seared spice-rubbed steak, but any type of mushroom will work. Like the rub in this steak recipe? Make a double, triple or quadruple batch to keep on hand for chicken and firm fish (swordfish, tuna and salmon) too. Store the steak rub in a jar or sealable plastic bag in your spice drawer for an instant dinner seasoning.

Ingredients
  • Total Time: 40 minutes

  • 2 teaspoons ancho chile powder, (see Tip)

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon packed dark brown sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus 1/4 teaspoon, divided

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus 1/8 teaspoon, divided

  • 1 pound flank steak, trimmed

  • 5 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots

  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 pound assorted wild mushrooms, trimmed and sliced

  • 1/3 cup Madeira, or dry sherry

  • 1/2 cup low-sodium beef broth

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Directions
  1. 4 servings, 3 oz. steak & 1/2 cup mushrooms each

  2. Position oven rack 3 to 4 inches below broiler; preheat broiler to high.

  3. Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray. Combine chile powder, cumin, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Rub the mixture evenly over both sides of steak and place on the prepared pan; let stand at room temperature for about 15 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, about 1 minute. Stir in mushrooms and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms release their liquid and begin to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour in Madeira (or sherry) and cook, stirring, until absorbed, about 1 minute. Add broth and cook, stirring occasionally, until almost absorbed, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in parsley and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper; cover to keep warm.

  5. Broil the steak 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium. Transfer to a clean cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steak against the grain and serve with the mushrooms.
