Whether it's Sunday night or date night, this dish is sure to impress. Chef Richard Blais teaches us how to cook restaurant-quality steaks at home. We'll learn the chef trick of basting steaks with butter, plus two accompaniments that take this meal to the next level: mushrooms deglazed with sherry, and a super savory blue cheese butter to finish the steaks.

Ingredients

Steaks:

Mushrooms:

Blue Cheese Butter (optional):

Directions

  1. Season the steaks with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with the onion powder and garlic powder.
  2. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Coat with a little oil, then add the steaks and cook on each side for 4 minutes or until seared. After the second flip, add the 2 tablespoons butter, the rosemary and garlic. Once the butter melts, tilt the skillet slightly to pool the liquid, then constantly spoon the butter over the steaks for 2 more minutes. Flip the steaks and baste again for 2 minutes. Remove the steaks from the skillet and let rest on a platter.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the mushrooms: Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat, add the sherry, then return to the heat and cook, scraping any browned bits from the bottom with a wooden spoon. Add the butter, swirl the skillet to coat, then season with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm.
  4. For the blue cheese butter: Mash the butter, blue cheese and parsley together with a fork in a small bowl until combined. Use right away or refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. Alternatively, you can fill small cookie cutters with the blue cheese butter and refrigerate until firm enough to unmold and take on a decorative shape. A leaf-shaped cutter would be pretty.
  5. Serve the mushrooms directly on top of the steaks. Or slice the steaks and serve the mushrooms in a side dish. Top each steak with a pat of the blue cheese butter, if desired.
