Mushroom sauce is a wonderful accompaniment served with steak which complements not overpowers the beefy flavors. Quick and easy to make it is perfect for your next barbecue or camping trip.

The secret to a deep flavor in the sauce is to let it simmer for a long time during each step. A good strategy is to cook it before the steak, then it can simmer while focused on the steak. This sauce also works well served as a mushroom pasta sauce.

This recipe uses basic button or white mushrooms as the powerful steak flavor can overwhelm more expensive mushrooms, which can be saved for more delicate flavor combinations like chicken. If remote, canned mushrooms are also an outdoor-friendly option.
