- 1 pound top sirloin steaks, about 1 ½ inches thick
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 8 ounces maitake mushrooms
- 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano leaves
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
- Fine sea salt
- Ground black pepper
- Chopped herbs for garnish
- Preheat the broiler to high, 500 degrees F, with the top rack of the oven about 6 inches from the heat source. Sprinkle both sides of the steaks generously with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and broil for 5 to 7 minutes on each side until they reach an internal temperature of at least 145 degrees F for medium.
- While the steaks cook, melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a large deep skillet over medium heat. Trim the toughest part of the stems from the maitakes and gently pull them apart into smaller pieces. Add the maitake mushrooms and shitake mushrooms to the butter. Cook, stirring often for about 3 minutes, until softened.
- Sprinkle in the oregano and thyme. Remove from the heat and add the remaining tablespoon of butter. Stir until it is melted. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper, or an amount to meet your tastes.
- Once the steaks rest for about 3 minutes, top with the mushrooms and spoon any remaining butter over the meat. Sprinkle with chopped herbs and slice the meat to serve.
