Beef steak with porcini mushrooms and squash
This year the mushroom season is absolutely f a n t a s t i c. We are big fans of porcini mushrooms and my dad brought us so many delicious and beautiful mushrooms this year that we couldn't be more grateful. We froze some for the winter, dried them for sauces and risotto, ate quite a lot of scrambled eggs with porcini (divine you guys!). I know your weeks are just as busy as ours and sometimes there's just a lack of time and ideas for midweek lunch / dinner. Which is why we started cooking live every Tuesday on our Instagram profile, to cook something quick and seasonal. This dish was made a few Tuesdays ago and honestly, we love it. The beef steak is juicy and delicious and the combination of squash, beans and porcini mushroom is light, super tasty and healthy as well. Healthy, quick, delicious and seasonal.

  • cook:


  • Pan fry your sirloin steak

    Season your sirloin steak to taste with salt and pepper. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in large frying pan over high heat. When the pan become very hot, add the sirloin steak. Pan fry for 2 - 3 minutes on one side, then turn around, add a knob of butter, thyme and peeled clove of garlic. Pan fry for another 2 - 3 minutes for medium rare. If you prefer your steak well done, pan fry for 5 minutes on each side.

  • Transfer the steak to a plate

    Transfer the steak to a plate and don't forget to pour over those delicious frying juices from the steak, they contain a lot of flavor.

  • Use the same frying pan

    Using the same frying pan we will now prepare the vegetables and porcini mushrooms. Peel the squash and cut it on small chunks (around 1 - 2cm / 0.5 inch). Peel the onion and cut it one quarters, if you are using shallots, cut them in half. Add a tablespoon of oil into a frying pan and add the squash and the onion (or shallots). Cook for about 10 minutes on medium - low heat, stirring occasionally.

  • Add the porcini mushrooms

    Clean the porcini mushrooms and cut them on slices (thickness around 0,5cm / 0.2 inch). Peel two cloves of garlic and slice them thinly. Add the mushrooms, garlic and sprig of thyme to the squash and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Add the beans

    Drain and wash the beans. Add the beans, balsamic vinegar, two tablespoons of water and chopped parsley to the squash. Cook for another 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. For some extra flavor we suggest adding those delicious, saved steak juices that were left from pan frying. Stir well and season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Serve

    Cut the sirloin steak into 0.5 c, / 0.2 inch thick slices. Serve the steak with the squash, mushroom and beans combo. Enjoy.
