This steak accompaniment is designed for the mushroom lover, so if you have none of those in your house you may be forced to eat it all yourself but they really are a great alternative to regular sautéed mushrooms.
Wild Mushroom Garnish for Steak(serves 2)
Heat a medium cast iron skillet to medium heat. While the pan heats up slice the mushrooms thin. Add the butter and olive oil, and stir until the butter is melted and the foaming subsides. Add half of the mushrooms to the pan along with the thyme, and saute until they have shrunk, then add the remainder of the mushrooms. This will help them to brown rather than steam. Continue cooking the mushrooms, stirring regularly until browned. Push the mushrooms to the sides and add the shallots, stir and cook for 2 minutes, and then combine with the mushrooms. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add the wine and cook until reduced by half. Sprinkle with flour and stir thoroughly. Slowly add in the stock and bring to a simmer. Simmer gently for 10 minutes or until thickened. Check for seasoning and correct if necessary. Remove them and serve immediately.
