How can I make this dish vegetarian (Lacto-Vegetarian)?
Substitute the steak for Portobello mushrooms.
1 to 1.5 pounds of Sirloin Tip Thin steak or 2 large Portobello Mushrooms
1/2 cup of cream
4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
course black pepper
4 cloves of garlic (minced)
6 to 8 oz of white button mushrooms (sliced)
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of fresh parsley (chopped)
Season steaks with salt and a generous amount of pepper. Do the same if using Portobello Mushrooms. Set aside.
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of the oil.
Pan fry the steaks or Portobello Mushrooms, cooking them for about 2 minutes, flipping them once halfway or 6 minutes for the mushrooms.
Remove steaks or Portobello mushrooms from the skillet and set aside. Cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.
Add 3 tablespoons of butter, 2 tablespoons of oil, and the minced garlic to the skillet. Once the butter has melted, add the sliced white button mushrooms and a pinch of salt. Cook for about 10 minutes.
Slowly add the cream. Make sure you incorporate the cream into the butter and oil before adding more. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust as necessary.
Once you have added all the cream, return the stakes or Portobello Mushrooms to the skillet and baste them with the sauce. Cook for another 5 minutes.
Serve and garnish with fresh chopped parsley.
