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. You never say to remove either the steak or onions yet you say to add the cooked mushrooms to the steak and onions, confusing

  2. This was so good and flavorful! So simple to make and yet full of flavor. I paired it with your parmesan roasted green beans 🙂

  3. Quick, easy & very tasty !

  4. Suggest NOT cutting the raw meat into strips first. Its much easier to flip the larger pieces of meat to flash sear each side and then cut into strips after. realized this after trying it your way. Otherwise, good flavor.

  5. Delicious! I did add a touch of Dijon and a bit of coconut aminos – loved it!

  6. Can you replace beef for pork?

  7. Can you replace beef with pork?

  8. What color onion is best for this?

  9. I fixed this for dinner tonight and served it over brown rice. I also added broccoli and cooked it the same way as the mushroom and onions. I also served your roasted green beans with parmesan cheese. It was a huge success! My son and 2 grandsons were disappointed that there were not enough for seconds. I’ll correct that next time. I had this meat and didn’t have any ideas how I wanted to fix it. So I searched for the meat and your recipe came up. I’m going to start searching for other things as well. Thank you for a great dinner we all loved. Lucille

  10. Excellent, my husband gave two thumbs up! It was to cold and windy to grill our steaks so I tried to this recipe and served with Rosemary Rice Mix and it was amazing. Definitely making this again. I added a little Worcestershire Sauce at the end as my husband loves it and it turned out great.

  11. Simple, classic, delicious!!!

  12. Any recommendations for a salsa or spicy sauce that may go great with this recipe?

  13. I made this last night and it was very good. My husband and kids liked it too, which is a great accomplishment! In addition to the mushrooms and onions, I also added some peppers.

  14. I made this exactly as stated. I found my onions took a little longer to cook than the recipe stated. It was flavorful, but I felt like it could use a sauce like chimmichuri. It is a good base recipe.

  15. Loved this dish. Easy, flavorful, healthy

  16. Such a favorite in this house! Thank you for the recipe! 

  17. Wondering if you meant this serves 2 instead of 4. With only 8 oz of meat, would only get 2 – 4oz servings of the meat. To get 4 servings, it would require 16 oz of meat. Just wondering as I prepared to make this. Looks delicious though. 

    • You can if you wish.

      • Sorry- what confused me was when I saw the serving directions as 1/4 of the dish and in parentheses saw 4 oz. Thought that meant 4 oz of meat.  See now it means 4 oz of the recipe. Sorry- just trying to keep up with my SP for the meal. It made a large serving and would feed 4 persons easily but there would be 2 oz of meat in each serving: Tasted great! Thank you for your response. PB

      • So what is the answer? Recipe calls for 1/2 lb of meat (8oz) but serving size says 4 people at 4oz each. Is it supposed to be 1lb of beef at 4oz servings or 1/2lb of beef at 2oz each?

      • It is 1/4 of the recipe, totaling 4oz (meat and veggies) Sorry for the confusion!

  19. Hubby loved it! And that’s always a challenge, especially with something healthy.
