  • 2 pounds mushrooms wild, trimmed, brushed clean with a towel and stemmed, caps left whole
  • 4 sprigs thyme fresh, leaves only
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1/4 cup Cognac
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 New York Strip Steaks


  1. Remove steaks from refrigerator for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a sautee pan over medium high heat. When hot add 1/4 cup olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the mushrooms and cook, stirring, about 10 minutes, until golden brown. 

  3. Add the thyme and garlic, and season well with salt and pepper. Toss a few more times to cook the garlic, then dump the mushrooms out onto a platter. 

  4. Take the pan off the heat and add the Cognac. Return the pan to the burner and simmer the Cognac for 2 minutes. Add the cream and cook 2 to 3 minutes it starts to thicken. 

  5. Return the mushrooms to the pan along with whatever juices have collected on the platter and simmer the whole thing another 2 minutes until thickened again. Season with salt and pepper.

  6. Remove from heat and cover while you cook the steak. Heat grill to 500 degrees. Add steaks and sear on both sides, about two minutes per side or until well browned. Lower heat to 350, insert meat thermometer and cook about 7 - 8 minutes per side or until thermometer reads 140 degrees for medium. (135 medium rare).
  7. Gently reheat the mushrooms if needed. Pass mushrooms in bowl at the table. They can be served as a side dish or over the steak.
