Stand by Classic: Steak n’ Shrooms

Steak and shrooms

I recently worked up a dinner of what is becoming a classic for my belly. First off, I know what some steak purists might say, “a true steak eater doesn’t use toppings or sauces.” Well, to those people I say, whatevs, I like my mushrooms, grilled onions, and horseradish.

I made a side dish of corn and peas, just because they were leftover and getting old (you’ll find that a trend with me). I added salt, pepper, a little tomato paste and jalapeno. I was less than impressed with it.

My salad though, was a hit. I did the classic tomato and basil salad, but I only had Romano cheese, so a shredded that over top. I also added some shaved carrot, cilantro, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. It really tasted great and went along with the juicy steak and toppings.
