I love steak! Fortunately we have a lot of it in the freezer thanks to the 1/4 cow we bought. I had a Sirloin tip steak thawing in the fridge the other day and went looking for a steak rub to put on it before cooking. I remember finding one a while back but couldn’t find it again this time so I decided to make one up myself for the fun of it. The results were very good and it’s a lot easier to make than the missing one I used last time.
To go along with the steak, I made some mushrooms and onions for a topping and some steamed broccoli. It was a hit with 3 of the 4 family members and the 4th did eat some but was negotiating the amount he’d have to eat right down to the very last bite.
Seasoned Sirloin Tip Steak with Mushrooms and Onions
1 lb Sirloin tip steak
1-2 C sliced mushrooms
1/2 onion sliced
Rub (put into an old spice bottle and shake)
1 t salt
1 1/2 t chili powder
1 1/2 t garlic powder
1 1/2 t Italian Seasoning (can make this from oregano, parsley, and basil)
Pat dry then rub about 2 tsp of seasoning mix into each side of meat. Coat a cast iron skillet with butter, coconut oil or bacon grease then place meat in pan. Cook on medium heat for 6 minutes on each side, turning only once. This gets you medium rare meat. Cook longer to your desired doneness.
Remove meat from pan to a cutting board to rest while you put more butter or bacon grease in the pan then add onions and mushrooms. I also added all of the blood that was in my steak package to this mixture. Add about 1 tsp of seasoning rub to mushroom mixture and stir occasionally until everything is tender. Serve on top of meat.
