While this grilled steak with red wine mushroom sauce recipe is delicious as written, don’t be afraid to get creative and make it your own! Here are some possible substitutions and variations to consider:

– Wine: While dry red wine is typically used in the sauce, you could experiment with other varieties of red wine or even white wine if you prefer. A dry Riesling could work well with the mushroom flavors. Just be sure to use a wine that you would enjoy drinking, as the flavor will come through in the finished dish.

– Soy sauce: If you don’t have soy sauce or simply want to switch things up, you could try using Worcestershire sauce instead. This will add a slightly different flavor profile but will still provide that umami depth.

– Steak cut: The recipe calls for beef tenderloin steaks, but you could substitute other cuts of steak depending on your preferences and budget. Hanger steak, NY strip steak, ribeye steak, sirloin steak – these are all tasty options that will work well with the mushroom sauce.

– Creamy mushroom sauce: If you’re a fan of cream sauces, you could try adding a splash of heavy cream or sour cream to the mushroom sauce at the end of cooking. This will make it richer and creamier.

– Bobby Flay’s twist: Celebrity chef Bobby Flay has his own version of this recipe that includes chopped scallions and fresh thyme leaves in the sauce. You could try adding those ingredients for an extra layer of flavor.

No matter what substitutions or variations you choose, remember to taste as you go and adjust seasoning as needed. Have fun playing around with different flavors and finding your perfect version of this delicious dish!

Grilled steaks with red wine mushroom sauce is a rich and satisfying dish that pairs perfectly with a full-bodied red wine. I recommend serving this dish with a dry Riesling or any full-bodied red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Pinot Noir.

To really bring out the flavors of the wine mushroom sauce and the steak, it’s best to serve them at the right temperature. I suggest letting the steaks rest for a couple of minutes before slicing them thin and pouring the sauce over them. This will allow the meat to absorb all of the wonderful flavors.

When it comes to pairing sides, keep it simple so as not to overpower the star of the show – the steak. A simple green salad with a vinaigrette or roasted vegetables like asparagus or Brussels sprouts make great sides.

Serve this dish for a special dinner party, romantic evening or any time you want to impress your guests with your culinary skills. With perfectly cooked steaks and flavorful wine mushroom sauce, this dish is sure to become a family favorite.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

This recipe for Grilled Steaks With Red Wine Mushroom Sauce is perfect for a dinner party as it can be prepped ahead of time. The mushroom sauce can be made up to 3 days in advance, stored in an airtight container and refrigerated until ready to use. When reheating, warm the sauce in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until it reaches the desired temperature.

The steaks can also be seasoned ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. However, it’s recommended to grill them right before serving to ensure they’re cooked perfectly and still juicy.

If you have any leftover mushroom sauce, store it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze it for up to 1 month. To reheat, thaw overnight in the refrigerator if frozen and heat in a small saucepan over low heat while stirring constantly. If the sauce is too thick, you can add a splash of beef broth or red wine to thin it out.

When storing the cooked steaks, let them cool down completely before wrapping them tightly in foil or plastic wrap and storing them in the refrigerator. They can be stored for up to 3 days.

When reheating, unwrap the steak and place it on a baking sheet. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and warm the steak for about 10-12 minutes or until heated through.

With these make-ahead, storing and reheating tips, you’ll be able to serve up restaurant-quality steaks with red wine mushroom sauce with ease at your next dinner party.

Tips for Perfect Results

For the perfect steak with red wine mushroom sauce, here are some tips from a seasoned chef that will make all the difference.

1. Season Steaks Ahead of Time: Make sure to season your steaks with salt and pepper at least one hour before cooking. This will give the salt time to penetrate the meat and enhance its flavor.

2. Let Steaks Reach Room Temperature: Allow your steaks to sit out for about 30 minutes before cooking, so they can come to room temperature. This helps to ensure that they cook evenly.

3. Sear Steaks in a Skillet: For a nice crust on your steak, use a cast-iron skillet on high heat with a little bit of oil. Cook the steak for about 4 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking.

4. Don’t Forget About the Sauce: While you’re cooking the steak, don’t forget about the mushroom sauce. Keep an eye on it and stir occasionally so it doesn’t burn.

5. Use High-Quality Red Wine: A good quality red wine is key for making a great red wine mushroom sauce. A full-bodied red wine like cabernet sauvignon or zinfandel is perfect for this recipe.

6. Add Butter for Creaminess: To make the mushroom sauce creamy and luscious, add a couple tablespoons of unsalted butter after it’s finished simmering.

7. Cut Against the Grain: When slicing your steak, be sure to cut against the grain for maximum tenderness and flavor.

By following these tips, your grilled steaks with red wine mushroom sauce will come out perfectly every time – juicy, flavorful, and with just the right amount of tangy goodness from the mushroom sauce.


As a sommelier, I often get asked about the best wine to pair with certain types of dishes. That’s why, in this FAQ section, I’ll be answering some common questions related to pairing wines with grilled steaks and mushroom sauce. From what type of wine goes well with red meat to whether you can substitute certain ingredients, I’ll cover everything you need to know to make your next steak dinner a success. So, let’s dive into the FAQs!

What wine goes with steak and mushroom sauce?

When it comes to pairing wines with dishes like beefsteak topped with a creamy mushroom sauce, I suggest opting for a robust red wine like a Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah. These full-bodied wines have enough depth and complexity to stand up to the bold flavor of the beef, while also balancing out the creaminess of the sauce.

What wine is best for cooking mushroom sauce?

When it comes to pairing wine with food, fruity red wines like Pinot Noir from the New World, a young Tempranillo or Merlot are excellent choices. For lighter dishes, a dry Riesling is recommended while a semi-dry Riesling pairs well with dishes that contain soy sauce. These pairing suggestions may come as a surprise, but they are sure to please the palate.

What is mushroom steak sauce made of?

To create a rich and savory sauce, I start by sautéing thinly sliced mushrooms in a generous amount of butter until they turn a deep golden brown. I then incorporate garlic to enhance the flavors and thicken the sauce with flour. For added depth, I pour in some beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and the pan drippings collected from a cooked steak.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this Grilled Steaks with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce recipe is a mouth-watering and satisfying dish that will have you and your guests asking for seconds. The combination of tender, juicy steaks paired with the rich, savory mushroom sauce is simply irresistible. What’s more, the sauce can be made ahead of time, making it an ideal dish for busy weeknights or special occasions.

To take this recipe to the next level, I recommend pairing it with a full-bodied red wine such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot. These wines complement the richness of the mushroom sauce and enhance the flavor of the beef. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try different wine pairings to find your perfect match.

Servings 4 steaks
Calories 1371.8 kcal


  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 small sirloin steaks
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 scallions, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 lb mushroom, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons flour


  • In a shallow dish large enough to hold the steaks in a single layer, combine the wine, soy sauce, vinegar, thyme, pepper and half of the garlic. Place the steaks in the marinade and turn them over to thoroughly coat. Set them aside to marinate while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
  • Preheat the broiler or prepare the grill. If broiling, line a broiler pan with foil.
  • In a medium skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the remaining garlic, the scallions and mushrooms and saute until the scallions are limp and the mushrooms are beginning to release their liquid, two to three minutes. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring, until it is no longer visible, about 30 seconds.
  • Remove the steaks from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Stir the reserved marinade into the skillet and cook, stirring, until the mixture has come to a boil and thickened slightly, one to two minutes. Reduce the heat to low and simmer while you cook the steaks.
  • Grill or broil the steaks four inches from the heat; 7 minutes per side for rare, 8 minutes per side for medium-rare, 9 minutes per side for well-done. Let the steaks rest for five minutes before serving.
  • Serve the steaks topped with the red wine mushroom sauce.
