2 1-inch New York strip steaks
2 tbsp butter or olive oil
1 cup assorted wild mushrooms (such as shitake, enoki, cremini, and morel)
1 cup sliced portabella mushrooms
1 tsp chopped fresh or dried parsley
1 tsp dried thyme
Big Green Egg Ancho Chile & Coffee Seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste


Set the Big Green Egg for direct cooking without the convEGGtor at 500°F/206°C; add the Dual-Sided Cast Iron Plancha Griddle to the EGG to preheat.

Pat the steaks until dry. Season on all sides with Ancho Chile & Coffee Seasoning and rest the steaks at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Heat the butter or oil on the plancha. Carefully add the steak and cook, flipping once, until a golden-brown crust starts to develop, about three-four minutes total. Remove from the heat to rest.

Add the mushrooms and herbs to the griddle and sauté until golden brown. Push mushrooms to the side and add the steaks back into the griddle, basting with butter or oil. Continue searing and basting until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the steak registers 120–125°F/49–52°C for medium-rare, six to 10 minutes total.

Remove the cast iron griddle from the EGG and spoon mushrooms over the steak and let rest five to 10 minutes before serving. Serve with your favorite veggies, seasonal salad, or roasted potatoes.
