Who doesn’t love an indulgent steak recipe? Whether you want something indulgent on a Friday night or fancy something really impressive next time you’re throwing a dinner party, give this steak with porcini butter a try and you’ll not regret it. It’s a great no fuss recipe to try if you’re entertaining as it’s super quick to make but feels really special and indulgent – plus you can serve it with a simple green side salad to really make things easy.

To make this dish even better we’ve concocted a porcini butter recipe to go with your steak, which is so simple to whip up and yet will make your guests feel like their in a restaurant.



  1. Soak the mushrooms in boiled water for 30 minutes, then drain through a fine sieve. Use a small knob of the butter to sauté the mushrooms for 10 minutes over a medium heat. Set aside to cool. Then put the mushrooms and butter into a processor and whizz together. Put in the centre of a large piece of parchment paper and roll into a cylinder. Wrap in cling film and put into the fridge to firm up.

  2. When you’re ready to cook the steaks, heat a griddle pan or use the barbecue. Lightly oil the steaks all over then season with sea salt. Cook until rare or medium rare. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes, seasoning with black pepper. Top with a thin slice of the butter and serve with a green salad.
