Grilling season is upon us, and there's no better way to celebrate than with a flavorful grass-fed flap steak, cooked to perfection and accompanied by savory sautéed onions and mushrooms. Using Acabonac Farms' grass-fed flap steak, this dish is not only mouth-watering but also showcases the benefits of regenerative agriculture.
- 2 lbs Acabonac Farms grass-fed flap steak
- 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 large onion, thinly sliced
- 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup red wine (optional)
- 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
- Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. While the grill is heating up, take your grass-fed flap steak out of the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature for about 30 minutes. This will ensure even cooking.
- Pat the flap steak dry with paper towels and brush it with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season both sides generously with salt and pepper.
- Place the flap steak on the preheated grill and cook for 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until it reaches your desired level of doneness. Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing against the grain.
- While the steak is resting, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened and golden brown, about 5 minutes.
- Add the mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they release their moisture and start to brown, about 5-7 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
- If using, deglaze the skillet with red wine, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom. Cook for 2-3 minutes to allow the wine to reduce and the flavors to meld.
- To serve, slice the rested flap steak against the grain and top with the sautéed onions and mushrooms. Garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy.
