Bourbon Mushroom Steaks
Serves: 4-6 servings
  • 2 (16-ounce) T-bone steaks, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 cups gourmet blend mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • ¼ cup bourbon
  1. Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper.
  2. In a 12-inch cast-iron skillet, heat 2 tablespoons butter over high heat. Add steaks; cook, turning once, until browned and desired degree of doneness is reached, 4 to 8 minutes per side. Remove steaks from skillet. Let rest at room temperature for 5 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-high. Add mushrooms, garlic, and thyme; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes. Add bourbon and remaining 2 tablespoons butter; cook until reduced by half, about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add steaks back to pan and baste with sauce. Serve immediately.
