Steak with Spicy Mushroom Sauce

Steak with Spicy Mushroom Sauce

This steak with spicy mushroom sauce is an easy weeknight dinner. The spicy mushroom sauce is made with portabella mushrooms, onions and a couple of cloves garlic, as well as tomato sauce and spices.

This recipe was adapted from a Publix Aprons recipe. I love to shop at Publix and usually pick up some of their free recipe cards if I find something new I want to try. After trying this steak with spicy mushroom sauce, I knew I had to share it here with you. It’s absolutely delicious and that mushroom tomato sauce is amazing!

Initially, I thought that it will take longer to cook but I was surprised how easy and quick this meal came together. Even though it might look fancy, it’s actually pretty easy to make. Just have your ingredients prepared before you start cooking because the steak cooks quickly and you don’t want to overcook your steak.

You can also cook the steak on the grill in the summer. For a complete meal, you can serve the steak with mashed potatoes (or baked potatoes), a light salad (like my cucumber salad) and a delicious flourless chocolate cake for dessert.
