Wild Mushroom Sauce for Steak
"This recipe for steak with wild mushroom sauce was posted back in 1997 but was lost in the transition to the new site so that's why it is showing up now." - RG
My wife and I spent Valentine's Day 1997 with five good friends who flew in from both coasts. Living in Park City and being a holiday weekend, this was a perfect opportunity for our friends to visit and do a little skiing.
Cooking for seven may not be as romantic as I would like, but it sure can be a lot of fun.
My idea was to put together a meal that includes foods that are orgasmic. I thought we'd start with fresh figs stuffed with mascarpone and some brie cheese.
Being a bunch of meat eaters, I decided on sliced steak with a wild mushroom sauce served with mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus. And for a salad...organic mixed greens with a Dijon vinaigrette. Where's the chocolate? How about a chocolate soufflé!!
Here is my recipe for grilled steak with wild mushroom sauce. Click on my link to see how I like to make perfect mashed potatoes. The recipe for wild mushroom sauce calls for demi-glace, one of the most important ingredients for making sauces. Demi Glace is difficult to prepare from scratch and can take hours and hours but is now available in commercial form.
One of my favorite dem-glace products has been More Than Gourmet's Demi Glace Gold but now some other gourmet manufacturers are getting into the mix and offering quality products and reduced costs. I have them mentioned and a source to purchase them on my Demi Glace page.
