Cuisine: American
Keyword: beef, dill sauce, steak
Servings: 4 servings


  • 4 medium New York strip steaks
  • 2 tablespoons shallots
  • 2 oz butter ½ stick
  • 1 pound assorted wild mushrooms portabello - morel - shitake - cremini...whatever is available
  • ½ cup red wine
  • 1 cup demi glace
  • salt and pepper to taste


Prepare Steaks

  • Preheat your grill until it’s really hot.
  • Season the steaks with a little salt and pepper.
  • The meat should be cooked approximately 3-4 minutes per side depending how you like your steaks.
    When done, slice the steaks into ¼ inch strips, fan out on a warm plate and add your wild mushroom sauce.

Prepare Wild Mushroom Sauce

  • Melt butter in a sauce pan and sauté shallots until transparent, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  • Add red wine, preferably something you may be sipping while you are preparing this meal. Don’t use plain old cooking wine, big mistake.
  • Add mushrooms and cook until tender and wine has reduced to an essence.
  • Add demi glace and stir (with a whisk if you have one) until combined with the shallots.
  • Simmer until the sauce has thickened, approximately 8-10 minutes or until it is thick enough to coat a spoon.
  • Salt and pepper to taste and serve over the steaks (and mashed potatoes if you like).
