Steak with Garlic Mushroom Cream Sauce is amazing, tender, perfectly seared steaks with a decadent garlic mushroom parmesan cream sauce that will have you licking the plate clean.
There is nothing quite like a perfectly cooked steak for dinner. But it can be hard to accomplish if you don’t have the right cookware, or don’t know what you are doing. A lot of people seem to think that in order to get a great steak, they need a grill. But restaurants don’t usually use grills when cooking steaks.
So today I am going to share with you how to get a perfectly seared, amazing steak, with the most amazing, finger licking, garlic parmesan mushroom cream sauce to go on top, using a stainless steel saute pan from Made In.
The key to cooking a great steak at home is having the right equipment, and the right pan is the difference between driving in a jalopy or a brand new Range Rover. You want to drive the Range Rover.

Steak with Garlic Mushroom Cream Sauce
For this amazing Steak with Garlic Mushroom Cream Sauce I used the 4 Qt Saute Pan. It is big enough to give a nice sear to the steaks, and then plenty of room for cooking the mushrooms and everything else! Delicious.
Once you have the right cookware it is a matter of patience, and combining the right ingredients. For this Steak with Mushroom Cream Sauce recipe, you get creamy parmesan and heavy cream, a little kick from the red pepper flakes, the earthy heartiness of the mushrooms, and of course, the steak. Which combined is like the best tasting thing ever! So be sure to follow these tips to get great results.
Tips for Pan Seared Steaks:
- Once you set your steak in the pan, leave it alone. When trying to form a nice sear, the key is to let the steak sit on the heat until a crust forms, if you move it around it won’t happen. So get that pan hot, then set your steak in and leave it for the 3-4 minutes.
- When making your sauce, deglaze your pan. You are searing a steak, which will leave some brown bits in the bottom of your pan. Then you add in the garlic. More brown bits. Then the mushrooms. More brown bits. So when you pour in the chicken stock, take a second to deglaze the pan, or in other words, use your spatula to gently scrape those brown bits off the bottom. It will make cleaning the pan easier, and give your pan sauce a really nice flavor.
- Reduce the sauce. When the recipe says to simmer 8-10 minutes, you want to make sure you do it. I like to simmer with the lid on for the first half, and off for the second, this gives your sauce a chance to reduce. Then let it reduce some more between the cream and the parmesan. You want it to be runny, but not liquid runny.
- Cook the steak to YOUR preferred temp. I like my steak medium-rare. But if you don’t like medium-rare, you won’t love this Steak with Garlic Mushroom Cream Sauce recipe. So be sure to cook to your preferred temp. One trick if you want a better done steak is to take your saute pan, and after adding the steaks back into it and into the sauce, pop it in a preheated 375 degree oven for 5-12 minutes to cook the steak longer. 5-8 minutes is going to give you a medium steak, and 8-12 will give you a medium-well.
