Sirloin Steak with Mushrooms

Background and History

Sirloin steak with mushrooms is a beloved dish that combines the succulence of juicy steak with the earthy richness of mushrooms. While its exact origin is unclear, variations of this dish have been enjoyed by meat lovers around the world for generations.


  • 2 sirloin steaks, about 1 inch thick
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced (cremini or button mushrooms work well)
  • 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

Serves: 2 people
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes


Season Steaks

Season the sirloin steaks generously with salt and pepper on both sides.

Sear Steaks

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steaks to the skillet and sear for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or until desired doneness. Remove the steaks from the skillet and let them rest on a plate.

Saute Mushrooms

In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté for 1 minute until fragrant. Add sliced mushrooms and cook until they are golden brown and tender, about 5-7 minutes.

Deglaze Pan

Pour in the beef broth and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon. Let the broth simmer until it reduces slightly, about 2-3 minutes.

Add Cream

Stir in the heavy cream and let the sauce simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes until it thickens slightly.


Return the steaks to the skillet, turning them to coat in the creamy mushroom sauce. Allow them to warm through for 1-2 minutes.

Garnish and Serve

Sprinkle with fresh parsley for a pop of color and flavor if desired. Serve the sirloin steaks with mushrooms hot, and enjoy!
