Steak with Balsamic Mushrooms & Onions

Wow, is all we could say when we ate this. Tender, juicy perfectly grilled steak (thanks to my hubby’s stellar grilling skills) with sweet slow-cooked cremini mushrooms and Vidalia onions seasoned with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and balsamic. This may be the best steak dinner we have ever made!


  • 2 large or 4 smaller steaks (choose your favourite cut), grilled to your liking
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large Vidalia onion (or other large sweet onion)
  • 227g (8 oz) package of sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 2 hearty tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to season

Directions (for the balsamic mushrooms & onions):

  1. Heat a large skillet to medium with 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  2. Add onions, season with a sprinkle of salt and a few grinds of pepper, and cook for 3-5 minutes until slightly translucent
  3. Add mushrooms to onions and stir to combine
  4. Add the balsamic to the mushrooms and onions and stir to combine.
  5. Turn heat down to medium low, season again with a sprinkle of salt and pepper and place a lid on the skillet and let the onions, mushrooms and balsamic cook slowly and reduce. Stir occasionally over 10-20 minutes, keeping an eye on the process and how the onions and mushrooms are doing. Once the onions and mushrooms have softened and absorbed the liquid, taste for a quick check, and then once you have determined they are done remove from the heat.
  6. Top your perfectly grilled steaks with the mushrooms and onions and enjoy!
