Steak Bites in Red Wine Mushroom Gravy

23 Jul

Are you looking for a use for leftover steak?  It’s hard to find a way to serve it that would be acceptable for another wine worthy dinner.  Here is a quick and easy recipe for leftover steak and a perfect mushroom gravy.






Steak Bites in Red Wine Mushroom Gravy

  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced  (I used my microplane to make for easy clean up)
  • 16 ounces sliced mushrooms (I used baby bellas)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 cup good red wine (preferably the one you are drinking for dinner)
  • 1.5 cups water with 1 tbsp cornstarch whisked in
  • 1 tsp beef base paste.  (I prefer Better Than Boullion brand)
  • 2 cups steak, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped


Saute mushrooms, salt, pepper, and garlic in a large pan over medium high heat until mushrooms have browned and have reduced in size by half.  (about 5 minutes)

Deglaze the pan by pouring in the red wine and scraping any brown bits off the botton of the pan with a wood spoon.  Reduce wine until almost dry.  Add steak bites to pan and stir.

Stir in water/cornstarch mixture and beef base and heat until boiling over medium heat.  Sprinkle with rosemary.  Reduce heat and simmer just until the steak is heated through.  (about another 3-5 minutes)  You DO NOT want to over cook the steak bites, so keep a close eye.

Serve with crusty bread.

    I have also used the Schwanns Brand Seasoned Steak Bites in this recipe and it works great, too.

    I’m going to see if the features editor wants to use it in The Forum as we did with the baby food.

    Actually you think this specific repayment agenda unsuitable, it can be better that you ought
    to extend the period of time by paying a few nominal expenses.

    plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they creazte news
