Charred Steak With Mushroom Vinaigrette

NOTE: Since the first review, I have edited this recipe to include complete directions. With the new zaar format, apparently it cut off the directions and I didn't notice in time. This recipe is from chef Rocco Dispirtio. It was published in Redbook magazine. You could also use 4 New York strip steaks in place of the ribeye steaks.

I made this as directed and it turned out to be delicious. My whole family loved it. We loved the sherry wine vinegar with the mushrooms. Very tasty!

We loved this. The sherry wine vinegar really added a nice flavor to the mushrooms. We halved this for the two of us and grilled our steaks but other than that made as directed. Thanks Lainey.
