It’s National Mushroom Day and while I love a good pie topped with — among other delights, mushrooms — these tasty fungi possess much more than pizza-topping properties. They’re good in almost every dish, especially those with tender, juicy beef!
Whether you saute them in bourbon and butter to top your steak, add them to stew or top your favorite back yard burger, mushrooms definitely add flavor, color and texture to your favorite dishes. Here’s a list of our favorite beef and mushroom recipes. I think you’ll find they make a perfect pair!
Celebrate National Mushroom Day with these tasty recipes:
- Cheese Ravioli with Mushroom Alfredo Sauce
- Sirloin Pesto, Mushroom & Asparagus Pizza
- Grilled Steak with Mushroom Cream Sauce
- Beef, Shiitake Mushroom & Sweet Potato Pot Pies
- German Pot Roast with Mushroom Leek Sauce
