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.

Miso mushroom sauce

This sauce was to die for, it elevated the steak dinner to a new level.

I am becoming a bit of a Marion groupy, not had a bad result from any of your recipes.

This sauce is absolutely sublime

My wife and I love mushrooms and had been looking for new uses for some shiro miso we had on hand. This checks all of the boxes for a great sauce: creamy, savory, earthy, a little salty and slightly herbaceous. Of course, it’s amazing on steak, but it also pairs fantastically with chicken and I imagine it would be delightful with pork as well. I’ll let you know ;j

My friends drink the sauce

This sauce is absolutely delicious and receives 5 stars for anyone that I have cooked it for! As the title suggests, yes, many have asked that I make a double batch and serve in a glass beside their steak…..sounds disgusting, but I dare you to taste it…..you will understand!
