Quick Skillet Steak with Onions and Mushrooms

Meat lovers will LOVE this quick weeknight steak dish! Delicious served over rice or with a baked potato, sweet potato or turn them into Steak and Cheese Sandwiches.

Mushrooms and onions are the perfect compliment to steak, plus they add bulk, fiber and nutrients without added calories or fat. A great example of using steak as a condiment.

Originally when I made this steak dish, it was intended for my steak sandwich recipe, but since this is also so good over rice, I felt it deserved it’s own post. (Steak and Cheese Sandwiches here!) Serve this with a vegetable or starch and a salad and you have a complete meal!

Helpful Tip

Have all your vegetables sliced and ready before you start cooking, this takes only minutes to make once everything is prepped.

  1. This was a great way to use up the rest of a hunk of flank steak that I had defrosted for making beef and broccoli. I only needed 2/3 of the defrosted steak and was looking for a way to use the rest of the steak. This fit my plans perfectly since I already had mushrooms and onion. I doubled the amount of onion and cooked the onion a lot longer to get them more caramelized. I spooned this over some baked sweet potatoes and it was wonderful.
