These steakhouse mushrooms can be made on your outdoor griddle or inside on the stovetop. A great mushroom recipe for steak or burger toppings!
Hamburger steaks, ribeye steaks, big juicy burgers, or smash burgers… They all pair perfectly with these easy steakhouse mushrooms. And when you cook everything right on your flat top grill or griddle at the same time, these flavorful sautéed mushrooms are super easy to make to compliment any beef dish.
As a former steakhouse chef, I can tell you that these mushrooms are a legit steak topping. But just make sure to make enough, or they may be all gone before they even make it to the plate.
Here’s how to make this easy mushroom recipe for topping your steak or burger:
Ingredients for Steakhouse Mushrooms
- sliced mushrooms – I typically use sliced white mushrooms, but baby bellas would work well for this recipe also.
- Worcestershire sauce
- soy sauce
- minced garlic
- cooking oil of your choice – We prefer to use avocado oil.
- mayonnaise – The mayonnaise gives these mushrooms a nice richness. I’ve also been known to substitute blue cheese dressing for added flavor.
- salt and pepper to taste – Be sure to take into account the level of salt in the other ingredients, and also think about the seasonings on your burger or steak so as not to over-season.
How to Make Mushrooms for Steak or Burger Toppings
These mushrooms are super easy to make in just a few minutes with a few basic ingredients that you probably already have on hand:
Step 1: Saute the sliced mushrooms in a bit of oil.
First add a bit of oil to your pre-heated flat top grill or cast iron skillet. We like to use avocado oil because of its high smoke point and health benefits, but pretty much any oil will do. Then, add your sliced mushrooms to the oil and start to saute.
Step 2: Heat minced garlic.
While the mushrooms are beginning to cook, add a small bit of cooking oil in an empty space on your flat top grill or in your skillet. Then, place about a tablespoon of minced garlic directly in the oil. This allows the garlic to get fragrant and heat up before adding it to the rest of the mushroom ingredients.
Step 3: Add other ingredients to the steakhouse mushrooms.
While the garlic is warming up, add Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and mayonnaise to the sliced mushrooms. Gently toss to combine all ingredients, including the minced garlic, thoroughly.
Step 4: Cook mushroom topping until tender and serve with your favorite meat.
Allow the mushroom topping to continue to cook until the mushrooms are done to your liking. Then, serve immediately as a side or topping for your burger or steak.
