Grilled steaks with mushrooms

Grilling out is one of the easiest dinner choices. It doesn’t matter what cut of meat you like only that you season it well and let it rest a few minutes before serving.  I like to serve steaks with a light salad, baked potato, and a steamed vegetable.

      serves 2 or as many as you buy steaks for…. for this recipe we are cooking for two


  1. Preheat grill to 350 F degrees.
  2.  Marinate steaks in Worcestershire sauce and set aside.
  3. To make dry rub,  Combine brown sugar, salt, pepper, onion powder, meat tenderizer, chili, and garlic powder in a small bowl.
  4. Take steaks out of marinade and rub with prepared seasonings, then place on hot grill for 4-5 minutes until golden brown and slightly charred
  5. Next place your Cast Iron Pan on grill or heavy-duty foil doubled next to steaks.
  6. Add butter to Cast Iron Pan, once melted combine mushrooms and shallots. Cook until till shallots are translucent and mushrooms are tender.
  7. Be sure to check the temperature of your steaks and pull off once it’s reached the desired temperature. ( see below for steak cooking times)

Basic internal temps for gas grilled steaks

  • Rare 120-130 degrees , continue to grill 3-5 minutes for medium rare (internal temp is 120-130 degrees F).
  • Medium 140-150 degrees continue to grill for 5-7 minutes for medium (internal temp is 140-150 degrees F).
  • Well done 160-170 degrees continue to grill for 8-10 minutes for medium well (internal temp 160-170 degrees F).

* Always let steaks rest for 3 to five minutes before serving remove steaks just before they reached desired temp as they will keep cooking while they rest*


This is a very simple meal that can be made quickly.
