Beef With Wild Mushrooms

A recipe from the Perfect Barbecue Cookbook.


  1. Preheat the barbecue. Place the steaks onto a cutting board and using a sharp knife, cut a pocket into the side of each steak.
  2. To make the stuffing, heat the butter in a large skillet. Add the garlic and cook gently for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms to the skillet and cook gently for 4-6 minutes, or until tender. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the parsley.
  3. Divide the mushroom mixture into 4 and insert a portion into the pocket of each steak. Seal the pocket with a toothpick. If preparing ahead, allow the mixture to cool before stuffing the steaks.
  4. Cook the steaks over hot coals, searing the meat over the hottest part of the grill for 2 minutes on each side. Move the steaks to an area with slightly less intense heat and cook for an additional 4-10 minutes on each side, depending on how well done you like your steaks.
  5. Transfer the steaks to serving plates and remove the toothpicks. Serve the steaks with salad greens and cherry tomatoes.

Very good, and very easy! I cut this down to make just one steak. For the filling, I used 1 T butter, 1 sliced clove of garlic, 1 cremini mushroom, a bit of dehydrated chanterelle and porcini, and about 1/2 teaspoon of fresh parsley. I chose a fat sirloin for the steak. This was excellent. I had no problems with the filling staying in the steak, and I really enjoyed the flavors of mushrooms in every bite. Thanks for posting a great steak recipe!

Followed this recipe as listed except for using regular mushrooms instead of wild ones. This turned out perfectly, thanks for sharing your lovely recipe :)

Wow! These were great! Loved the mushroom and garlic flavor with the sirloin steaks! This biggest problem I had was with the mushrooms escaping on the grill! I made plenty of rescues. I used baby portabella rather than the mixed wild as that was what I had on hand. Made for Spring 2009 Photo tag.
