Beef Steak with Oyster Mushrooms
This is one of the best recipes for all meat fans out there. A good piece of rib eye or sirloin steak brushed with a deliciously flavored marinade is all you need for a juicy piece of meat with a beautiful and crispy crust. Preparing a perfect steak really isn’t that difficult. You need a strong fire with an open flame to briefly burn your steaks from the outside while keeping them tender on the inside. Naturally, for a juicier flavor and medium-rare to rare steak, you will need a thicker cut (1-1 ½ inch thick). If you prefer your steak well done, ¾ -1 inch will be enough.
When it comes to serving your steak, it’s probably already good as it is. However, you can always add some fresh or grilled vegetables to a serving plate, or simply drizzle your steak with various sauces and marinades. I have decided to go with a classic, grilled onions, and oyster mushrooms – both of which are nicely marinated in some high-quality olive oil, herbs, and spices. Give it a try!
1 piece beef steak (rib eye or sirloin), about 1 lb
1lb oyster mushrooms
1 purple onions
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp smoked paprika
½ tsp dried celery
½ tsp dried thyme
½ tsp garlic powder
Freshly ground black pepper
Fresh rosemary, optional
Remove the steak about 30 minutes before cooking. Place on a large cutting board and let it sit at the room temperature.
Rinse the steak thoroughly under cold running water and pat dry with a kitchen towel. Slice into approximately ¾ –inch thick slices and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine together sea salt (about one teaspoon), smoked paprika, garlic powder, dried thyme, and dried celery. Pour in the oil and mix all well.
Rinse mushrooms thoroughly making sure to remove any dirt. Drain and place on a cutting board. Thinly slice onions and brush everything generously with the previously prepared mixture. Let it sit for 20-30 minutes.
Meanwhile, start your Breeo fire pit. Start the fire with a couple of small dry branches. Add 6-7 hardwood logs. Let the fire burn for 20-30 minutes. You will need a strong open flame to prepare perfect steaks.
Grease the grill grate with some oil and position about 4 inches above the fire. Carefully add steaks and grill for about 5-6 minutes, turning halfway through.
Meanwhile, place mushrooms and onions on a large piece of aluminum foil. Place on the grill and cook for 7-8 minutes, turning each piece once.
Remove from the grill and optionally sprinkle with some fresh rosemary, salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately.
