Making substitutions or variations to a recipe can be a fun and creative way to experiment with flavors and ingredients. Here are some ideas you might want to consider for this grilled sirloin steak with mushroom wine gravy recipe.

Firstly, you can swap the sirloin steak for other cuts of beef, such as a rib-eye, beef tenderloin steak, hanger steak, NY strip steak, or rump steak. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness and type of steak.

If you prefer a creamy mushroom sauce instead of a red wine mushroom sauce, you can make a few tweaks to the recipe ingredients. Instead of using beef broth and red wine, substitute it with heavy cream and white wine. You can also add some grated Parmesan cheese or cream cheese for an extra indulgent touch.

For those who love wild mushrooms, you can use them instead of cremini mushrooms. Some delicious options include shiitake, portobello, oyster or porcini mushrooms.

If you’re looking to reduce the calorie content of the recipe slightly, swap the unsalted butter for margarine or olive oil. If you’re using olive oil just make sure to choose one with a high smoke point as we will be cooking at high heat.

No fresh thyme? No problem! You can substitute it with dried thyme or other herbs like rosemary or oregano.

Lastly, if you are vegetarian or vegan and are looking to make this recipe meat-free you may want to consider using portobello mushroom caps in place of the sirloin steak. Simply cook them in a similar fashion as instructed in the recipe but reduce cook time slightly so as not to overcook. Bon appétit!

There is nothing better than a freshly grilled sirloin steak with mushroom wine gravy sauce, but if you’re not in the mood for cooking on the day of your dinner party, then you can make the mushroom sauce ahead of time. After preparing the sauce following the recipe instructions, let it cool down at room temperature and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.

When it’s time to serve, reheat the sauce over medium-low heat stirring occasionally until it simmers again. You may add one or two tablespoons of water or beef broth to thin out the sauce if it’s too thick. The reheated mushroom wine sauce may lose some of its thickness but the flavors will be just as delicious.

To store grilled sirloin steaks, wrap them tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil before refrigerating. You may also place them in an airtight container. Leftover grilled steaks can be refrigerated for up to 3-4 days.

To reheat leftover grilled sirloin, preheat the oven to 350°F ( 175°C) and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Put leftover steak onto the prepared baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes or until heated through. You may also reheat them on a skillet over medium-high heat with some butter or olive oil, for about 2-3 minutes on each side until heated throughout.

Now you know how simple it is to make ahead and store this delicious meal! You won’t need to stress about last-minute preparations anymore because now you’ve got everything covered with these easy make-ahead tips!

Now, let me share with you some tips to ensure that your Grilled Steaks with Mushroom Wine Gravy Recipe turns out perfect every time.

Tip #1: Choose the Right Cut of Steak

The first step to achieving restaurant-quality steaks is to select the right cut of steak. While sirloin steak is the star of this recipe, other cuts like rib-eye, hanger steak, NY strip steak or beef tenderloin steaks also work well. Just make sure that the cut you choose is at least an inch thick and has good marbling.

Tip #2: Get Your Grill Hot

To get those perfect grill marks and charred exterior, preheat the grill for at least 10 minutes on high heat before cooking. This will ensure that the grill grates are hot enough to sear the steak properly.

Tip #3: Season Your Steak Liberally

Seasoning your steak with salt and pepper before grilling is crucial to bringing out its natural flavors. Be generous in your seasoning, applying about 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper per pound of meat.

Tip #4: Let Your Steak Rest Before Slicing

After cooking your steak to perfection, it’s important to let it rest for about 5 minutes before slicing into it. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat and results in a tender, juicy steak.

Tip #5: Make Sure Your Sauce Is Smooth

When making the mushroom wine gravy sauce recipe, it’s important to stir it constantly on medium heat until it thickens. If you find any lumps in the sauce, just strain them out before serving. You can also use an immersion blender or regular blender to achieve a smoother texture.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to create a mouth-watering dish that will impress everyone at your dining table!


Before we conclude this recipe article, let me address some common questions you may have about this grilled steak with mushroom wine gravy recipe. Whether this is your first time cooking or you’re an experienced home cook, these frequently asked questions and answers can help you achieve the perfect dish every time. So, read on to clear any doubts and cook this delicious steak that will undoubtedly impress your guests or family.

What does cooking steak in wine do?

When it comes to cooking meat, poultry, or seafood, adding wine to the mix can work wonders. Not only does wine act as an acidic element that tenderizes the exterior of the protein, but it also infuses it with flavor. Additionally, using a wine-based marinade can help prevent the protein from drying out while cooking.

How to make wine sauce after cooking the steak?

As a sommelier, one of my favorite ways to elevate a steak dinner is by creating a delicious red wine sauce. To achieve this, start by reserving a tablespoon of the savory drippings from your cooked steak in the pan. Over medium heat, add in a flavorful red wine, along with some rich beef stock, tangy balsamic vinegar, and a few sprigs of fresh thyme. As the mixture simmers, the flavors will meld together perfectly, resulting in a mouthwatering aroma that will have your taste buds begging for more. After a few minutes, the sauce will thicken and become more concentrated, making it the ideal accompaniment to your succulent steak. Once the thyme has been removed, lower the heat and prepare to savor this divine, homemade sauce.

What is mushroom steak sauce made of?

If you’re looking for a rich and savory sauce for your steak, then start with sautéed mushrooms in butter till they turn a lovely golden hue. Enhance the flavor profile with a hint of garlic and add some flour to thicken. After that, mix in beef broth, Worcestershire sauce and pan drippings leftover from your cooked steak to ensure every bite of your steak is packed with flavors.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this Grilled Sirloin Steak with Mushroom Wine Gravy recipe is an absolute must-try for all steak lovers out there. The combination of juicy grilled sirloin steak and savory mushroom wine sauce will leave your taste buds singing with joy.
