Spicy Lemon Pepper Steak with Roasted Lemon Pepper Mushrooms
La Selva Beach Spice
1 Cup Olive Oil
1/4 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tsp La Selva Beach Spice Garlic Lemon Pepper
2 Tbsp La Selva Beach Spice Crushed Red Pepper
2- 12 Oz. Steak (We used Strip Steak, but any cut would work great!)
2 Tbsp Butter
12 Oz. Cremini Mushrooms
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tsp La Selva Beach Spice Garlic Lemon Pepper
In a bowl combine the oil, vinegar, Worcestershire, La Selva Beach Spice Garlic Lemon Pepper Salt, and La Selva Beach Spice Crushed Red Pepper. Whisk the marinade thoroughly.
Put both of the strip steaks in a one gallon plastic resealable bag (or a shallow container). Pour the marinade into the bag over the steaks, and seal tightly squeezing as much of the air out as you can.
Marinate the steaks for 3 to 5 hours.
Remove the steaks from the marinade and place them on a plate. Let the steaks sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes before cooking.
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
In a bowl combine the mushrooms, La Selva Beach Spice Garlic Lemon Pepper Salt, and olive oil. Mix thoroughly until all of the mushrooms are coated in the spice.
Place the mushrooms on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, stem side up.
Bake the mushrooms for 25 minutes.
Grill the Steaks
Heat a cast iron grill pan or flat cast iron pan over medium heat. Add the butter and place the first steak on the pan (if you are using a pan big enough to fit both steaks you can cook them at the same time, but the steaks should not be touching while they cook). Cook the steak 3.5 minutes on each side for medium rare. Rotate the steaks after 1.5 minutes on each side if you are using a grill pan (this creates the criss-cross grill marks). Repeat with the second steak.
Let the steaks rest for about 5 minutes after cooking. Place each steak on a plate and top with the roasted mushrooms. Serve with a side of vegetables.
