A few years ago, my mother-in-law served delicious spicy creamed steak for dinner one night. The combination of flavors in the dish of steak, garlic, pepper, basil, ginger, cheese, and then the signature bite of dill pickles was amazing. Since then, creamed steak is one of the top recipes my husband requests I make for dinner.
It’s a simple meal to make, hearty and comforting.
Here’s how I make it.
Melt butter and brown mushrooms and onions.
I love the way my kitchen smells when I’m cooking mushrooms and onions. And it always draws Little Buddy out of whatever he’s into to come see what we’re having for dinner.
Slice steak into long strips. You can really use any cut of beef that you’d like in this recipe, but honestly, it works well with the thin cuts of top round steak. I like to stack the beef and slice it one time. Major time saver.
Put your steak strips into the skillet with your onions and mushrooms. Add the salt to the top of the meat and combine.
Add in all of your spices. Yum, this is where the spicy comes in for this dish! If you like spicy meals, you can go all the way up to 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and still enjoy it. Believe me, my husband loves spicy and I’ve tried it as far as I could go!
Throw in your chopped parsley and basil and combine. Then add in heavy cream and cheeses. Give it a quick stir, reduce to a simmer, and cover the skillet for about 10 minutes to let it all just have a good ole time in that skillet.
This is when the magic happens!
Serve warm over egg noodles or rice. You really won’t need to worry about how to refrigerate or freeze spicy creamed steak. You won’t get the chance
