Shared Steak with Saucy Asian Mushrooms


  • 375 g ribe-eye or sirloin steak, about 1-in. thick

  • 1/2 tsp five-spice powder

  • 1 pinch salt and pepper

  • 340-g pkg mixed fresh mushrooms

  • 2 tbsp butter

  • 3 tbsp brandy

  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce, can substitute with 2 tbsp teriyaki sauce

  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced


  • Bring steak to room temperature. Place oven rack about 3 in. (7.5 cm) from broiler. Preheat broiler. Set a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush steak all over with oil. Sprinkle both sides with five-spice powder, salt and pepper, then rub in. Then place steak on rack.

  • Discard stems from shiitake mushrooms. Thickly slice caps. Thickly slice cremini and oyster mushrooms. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add shiitake and cremini mushrooms. Stir often until softened around edges, 5 to 7 min. Stir in oyster mushrooms, brandy, hoisin and green onion. Stir often until very bubbly, 2 min. Remove from heat and cover.

  • After you start mushrooms cooking, place steak under broiler. For medium rare, broil until beef gives slight resistance when pressed with your finger, about 4 min per side. Remove to a cutting board. Let rest 5 min before slicing and placing on one or two warmed plates, depending on how you are going to share. Spoon mushrooms and sauce overtop.
