I love mushrooms! Mountain Man does not. But we can always agree on steak!! I tweaked this recipe so you can have it with or without mushrooms… or both! This recipe was adapted from Cooking Light steak tips and gravy recipe. It’s a fairly American traditional meal. In fact when I told my dad about it, he told me he used to make it in the Air Force all the time!

Typically I serve this over egg noodles but tonight I felt like serving it with mini baked potatoes. It goes great with any starch really.

Make your broth mixture – In a large measuring cup or mixing bowl, whisk 2 cups of beef broth, a generous dash of A1, and 2 tbsp of soy sauce.

 In a large saucepan, add steak and saute for 5 minutes to brown all sides.

Remove steak from pan and cover.

Add 2 tbsp of butter to the drippings in the sauce pan.

Add the other 2 garlic cloves and shallots. Saute for about 4 mins.

Gradually add broth mixture while whisking.

Mushroom Time:

If you’re into mushrooms these next instructions should start to happen now. If not, skip the next instructions.

Place mushrooms in a medium sauce pan. Sauté with 1 tbsp butter, a dash of A1, and a little beef broth.

 Once the mushrooms are done, pour the remaining saute liquid into the gravy.steak 6

Keep on low occasionally adding a little more broth to coat the mushrooms.

OK back to steak and gravy

Add pepper, salt, and thyme sprigs.

Bring to a simmer for about 2 minutes, or until it thickens. You want it to be soupy, not watery.

If you need to thicken further – mix 1 tbsp of flour, 1 cup of beef broth, 1 cup of water. Whisk and slowly add. Bring to a simmer for 2 mins. I usually end up doing this.

Remove thyme sprigs.

Add steak and continue simmering for an additional 2-5 minutes. Check after 2 minutes to see if the steak is just done. Trust me if it’s overcooked, it’s no bueno!
