  • 2, 8 oz New York Strip steaks
  • 1 Tbsp sea salt or truffle salt
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 6 sliced button or cremini mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp of the steak seasoning mixture
  • 1/2 cup sherry
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • fresh cracked black pepper
For the Potatoes
  • 6 russet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup milk or heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup shredded gruyere cheese
  • truffle or sea salt to taste
  1. Bring the steak to room temperature.
  2. Mix the salt, garlic, herbs, and pepper together and sprinkle each side of the steaks with about 1 tsp of the mixture. Let steak rest for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the sauce and potatoes.
For the sauce...
  1. Saute the mushrooms in the butter just until they begin to release their water. Season with the salt blend, add the sherry, continue to boil, and reduce by half. Add the cream and continue to simmer until reduced and slightly thickened.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes in salted water until they are soft and tender. Drain and gently mash.
  3. Heat the milk, and stock and melt the cheese in a saucepan. Mash into the potatoes. Continue to mash and whisk until smooth. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Broil the steak app 5 minutes per side for medium *or* sear it 2 minutes a side in hot a pan with oil and butter and the place in a 325 oven for 5 minutes.
  5. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes.
  6. Serve the steak with the potatoes, boiled or steamed spinach with the mushroom sauce drizzled over all.

  2. Nice Diane! Let me know how you both liked it.

  3. This is one of my favorite menu items I get at a steakhouse. By the way, we don't let the weather dictate our grilling, we just brush the snow off the grill if necessary and grill away. Our new grill favorites is veggies, mmmmmm.
