Truffle Mushroom Steak

A steak doesn’t always need an actual sauce. This luxurious combo of truffle oil and pan-fried large brown mushrooms on a perfectly cooked matured steak are the stuff dreams are made of.

What is truffle oil?

According to Wikipedia, truffle oil can be defined as the following “Truffle oil can be produced using any oil. Common versions use olive oil, or a more neutral flavorless oil such as canola or grapeseed oil.

Some truffle oils are made with the residue of truffles collected or prepared for sale. Many truffle oils are not made from truffles, but instead use manufactured aromatic compounds including 2,4-dithiapentane (one of many aroma active compounds that can be found in some truffle varietals) with an oil base. “

Truffle oil is generally pretty intense in flavour which is why you only need to add a little bit to your dish to make it have a deep impact.
