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. 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:
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
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 6 oz sliced mushroom
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 2 tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 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.
- 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,
- Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel, and season the steaks with a little salt and pepper.
- Grill the steaks to your liking.
- 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.
- Add the vinegar and sugar to the mushrooms and stir to dissolve the sugar. Bring to a simmer and reduce the heat.
- Let the liquid reduce over the mushrooms.
- Once the liquid is reduced, remove the mushrooms from the heat.
- Place the steaks on a plate and top with the saute mushroom mixture and ENJOY!
