Fall Ingredients – Best Mushrooms for Steak


Beautiful fall! It’s here and it’s time to take advantage of all of fall’s bounty.

Mushrooms are a great start! So what are the best mushrooms to accompany a beautiful steak?

Shiitake. Served with flank steak, their smoky taste really enhances the flavor in the beef.

Portobello. This is a very common steak accompaniment because they have a very similar taste to steak. A top sirloin steak is perfect prepared in a skillet with the mushrooms.

Oyster mushrooms. These mushrooms are a wonderful addition to a pepper steak dish. They’re very peppery and add delicious flavor.

The time is right so have fun playing with your own version of mushrooms and steak this fall!

    Of all the mushrooms listed above, my favorite is the Shiitake. Not just because it blends perfectly with the taste of steak but mainly because of its medicinal attributes. It protects us against cardiovascular diseases (including atherosclerosis) by preventing too much immune cell binding to the lining of our blood vessels. Hope that helps. =)
