Pan Fried New York Strip Steaks with Cremini Mushrooms

We eat a lot of beef and nothing goes better with beef than mushrooms!  By far the mushrooms we consume the most of are the common white mushrooms bought directly from the mushroom farm.  Our next favourite mushroom is the portobello mushroom.  Looking through Cook's Thesaurus there are a lot more mushrooms for us to discover!  Now that I'm back on my feet discovering different mushroom varieties is on my culinary to-do list.

pan fried New York stip steaks with cremini mushrooms
My husband pan fried New York strip steaks with cremini mushrooms for last night's dinner.  Portobello mushrooms are giant cremini mushrooms with a more pronounced flavour.  Cremini mushrooms are about the same size as the common white mushrooms but they are brown.  They have a deep, rich flavour that lends itself nicely to the caramelization of sautéing.    

The steaks were seared to medium rare once the mushrooms were sautéed.  The mushrooms and small amount of liquid was poured over the steaks.  The steaks were served with mashed potatoes for a simple yet tasty meal.

It looks really good, too.
I am terrible with steaks. I love to eat them, but invariably I overcook them. :/
