Eating out at restaurants can be difficult and anxiety-provoking for many people with a food allergy or an intolerance. With this tasty steak recipe you can get all the flavorful quality of a restaurant meal right out of your own kitchen – without any of the possible cross-contamination!

I love a good grilled steak but it’s not practical for me most days. Grilling is my husband’s forte and if he’s not home in time to grill then it’s just not going to happen! This steak and mushroom recipe is cooked right in the kitchen over the stove-top, where I’m much more comfortable.

This steak is full of flavor and the garlic mushroom sauce is the perfect pairing.

I love pan-seared steaks. They’re easy and perfectly tender and juicy! I grew up in Iowa where it’s all about meat and potatoes (and corn). While I enjoy all kinds of meat I am definitely a steak person. While we don’t eat it too often it is a true family favorite in our home!

Don’t worry if you are new to cooking steak. This easy recipe is fool-proof. Make sure to heck out the tips below for cooking the perfect steak!

What You Need for Steak and Mushrooms


  • A large skillet: Cast iron, non-stick, etc. Any kind of skillet can be used.
  • Meat thermometer: I used to just guess but a meat thermometer makes it so much easier to ensure your steak is cooked just the way you like! This is especially true if you are cooking for multiple people! I’m a medium-well kind of person while my husband is a medium-rare.

Ingredients for Steak and Mushrooms

  • Steaks: You can use whichever cut you prefer. New York Strip, Ribeye, and Sirloin are all good choices.
  • Beef broth: For marinating the steaks.You can skip this step if you are short on time. However, marinating the steaks helps them turn out tender and juicy!
  • Olive oil
  • Mushrooms: I just use simple white mushrooms – nothing fancy. Use whatever you like.
  • Minced garlic
  • Seasonings: Italian seasoning, dried parsley, salt, and pepper.

Tips for Cooking Steak

  • Take the steak out of the fridge early. Cold steaks don’t cook evenly. Take the steaks out of the fridge about 30 minutes before you start cooking to remove some of the chill form the meat.
  • Marinate the steak for at least 30 minutes. Marinating the steak before cooking gives it more flavor and keeps it tender and juicy! If you marinate for 30 minutes you can easily marinate the steaks while they are warming up. Just leave the steaks on the kitchen counter in the marinade for 30 minutes and you kill two birds with one stone.
  • Avoid flipping the steak too many times. The steak loses juice each time you flip it. Once turn the steak once if possible!
  • Cook the steaks over medium-high heat. The high temperature sears in the juices helping it to stay nice and juicy!
  • Let the steak rest after cooking. Let the steak rest for about 5 to 10 minutes. This allows all the juices you seared in to redistribute.

The Perfect Steak Dinner Menu

I love a fancy steak dinner at home! Home-cooked steak dinners where my husband’s and my fancy dinner of choice when we first got married. We were poor college students working student jobs (I was a research assistant and he edited small Christian based videos for our church) and going out for a steak dinner was way out of our budget. A few years later after our first son was diagnosed with several food allergies, our home-cooked dinners provided us with peace of mind – knowing we could control what was in our food much more easily at home than at a restaurant.

Here is a perfect dinner menu to pair with this tasty steak and mushrooms recipe – and it’s completely allergy-friendly!

And of course you’ll need a tasty dessert! Here are a few dessert options depending on what you’re feeling. All these recipes are gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free, and peanut-free!
