Seared Sirloin Steak with Miso Butter Mushrooms

  • 16 oz. lean sirloin steak
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 T. cooking fat - I used bacon fat
  • ¼ c. unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 T. white miso paste
  • 8 oz. button mushrooms, rinsed and sliced
  • 2 T. dark, thick soy sauce - I used a mushroom soy sauce

Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. While the skillet heats, rub the steak generously with salt and pepper and set aside. Add the cooking fat of your choice to the hot skillet. When the fat is melted and hot, add the steak and allow it to sear, untouched, for 4 minutes. Flip the steak and allow it to cook on the other side for an additional 4 minutes; remove to a cutting board and tent with foil and allow to rest.

While the steak is resting, mix the butter and miso paste together. Add the mixture to the hot skillet over medium heat. Add When the butter is melted, at the mushrooms and sauté until cooked through and lightly browned on the edges. Remove from the heat and add the soy sauce and stir lightly.

Slice the steak into thin strips and serve the miso butter mushrooms over the steak.
