Steak & Creamy Miso Mushroom Sauce

How to make steak night even better? Add this epic mushroom sauce. So good, there’ll be zero regrets… promise!


Steak & Creamy Miso Mushroom Sauce

10 minutes
15 minutes

2 scotch fillet steaks (or any cut of steak you like)

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

25g (1 oz) butter

2 thyme sprigs


Creamy miso mushroom sauce:

¾ cup beef stock

2 tbsp white miso paste (also known as shiro miso)

2 tbsp vegetable oil

400g (14 oz) mixed mushrooms, cut in half

50g (1.7 oz) unsalted butter

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 shallot, finely chopped

3 thyme sprigs

¼ cup sake (alternatively use white wine)

1 cup cream

¼ tsp ground white pepper

zest of half a lemon

2 tbsp finely chopped chives

sea salt

  • Step 1

    For the creamy miso mushroom sauce, place the beef stock in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. When just simmering, whisk in the miso paste. Once combined, remove from heat.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat. When hot, add the mushrooms and spread them out in the pan. Sprinkle with salt and allow the mushrooms to sear without moving them. After about 2 minutes you should have some nice colour on the first side. Flip the mushrooms over and sear another 2-3 minutes. Now add the butter, garlic and shallots. Cook, stirring for half a minute. Then add in the thyme sprigs.

  • Step 3

    Now pour in the sake and allow to bubble and simmer for a minute. Then add the beef stock mixture and the cream. Simmer for 4-5 minutes or until thickened slightly. Stir through the pepper, lemon zest and chives. Turn the heat off and keep warm. If the sauce is too thick when you go to reheat and serve, just stir through a couple of tablespoons of water or beef stock to loosen.

  • Step 4

    Season your steaks generously with salt. Heat another large frying pan over high heat. Add a tablespoon of oil in the pan. Sear steaks. Then add butter and thyme and baste as the steaks cook. Cook for 2-3 minutes each side (for medium-rare). Rest for a couple of minutes.

  • Step 5

    Serve steaks topped with the miso mushroom sauce.

Marian Grasby's Mushroom Sauce

this recipe was one of the easiest and tastiest mushroom sauces I’ve ever cooked. I had it over pasta the following day and it was so yummy!

Highly recommended.

OMG bellisimo!

Wow what an awesome recipe for mushroom sauce. I can’t stop eating it from the pan lol. I actually used chicken breast (that’s what I had on hand) cut them in 1/2 rolled in panko crumbs and chicken stock . When I make it again I think I’ll omit the salt as I found the miso paste I was using was quite salty. Give any of Marion’s recipes a try, you won’t be disappointed.

I’m about 2 months new to Marion’s recipes and I love, love, love them (especially Chinese). Marion is the only one I follow now, culling my list of about 50…lol.
