Grilled Mushroom Steak Recipe

Grilled Mushroom Steak uses a technique to tenderize cheap steak and turn it into a mouth-watering steak with balsamic saute mushrooms.

Anyway, last weekend, when the weather was actually more spring-like. I think the way this weather here in Cleveland is ping-ponging is why I have been feeling blah lately, but that another thing altogether. Anyway, I actually grilled, yes I grilled up this Grilled Mushroom Steak. The weather was good and a steak on the grill was perfect to have for dinner.

What inspired this recipe actually was a technique I saw on how to make a cheap piece of steak taste like filet mignon. The secret: Salt. Yep, you saw that right, salt. I heard about this before, salt can age a steak and make it tender. I use a mixture of Pink Himalayan salt and Hawaiian Volcanic salt to age my steaks. Wait, here instead of me getting into detail about this detail, just watch this:

Trust me it works like a charm this technique. I used the cheapest steak I could find at the Super Market and the end result of salting it with the technique above really made for a Grilled Mushroom Steak. I am a lover of mushrooms, so I did this balsamic saute mushroom and put them on top the steak. The result was fabulous! It was one the best Grilled Mushroom Steak I have had outside of a restaurant.

A technique to tenderize cheap steak and turn it into a wonderful mouth watering steak topped with balsamic saute mushrooms. A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen.


  • 2 cuts of steak
  • Salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 6 oz sliced mushroom
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar


  1. On a foiled lined cookie sheet place your steaks on it. Then cover the steaks in salt. Depending on the thickness let them sit, salt covered for at least 1 hour.
  2. After an hour you will notice the "juice" around the steaks, If you want to sit longer to tenderize it more you can. I have been know to let steaks age overnight. Rinse off the salt under water,
  3. Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel, and season the steaks with a little salt and pepper.
  4. Grill the steaks to your liking.
  5. Heat up the oil in a pan, place the sliced mushrooms and garlic in the hot oil and saute them for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly.
  6. Add the vinegar and sugar to the mushrooms and stir to dissolve the sugar. Bring to a simmer and reduce the heat.
  7. Let the liquid reduce over the mushrooms.
  8. Once the liquid is reduced, remove the mushrooms from the heat.
  9. Place the steaks on a plate and top with the saute mushroom mixture and ENJOY!
