  • 4 (14 ounce/400 g.) rib-eye steak
  • 2 portabello mushrooms (stems and gills removed)
  • 12 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 4 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Steak Sauce:
  • 1 cup/240 mL beef stock
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL balsamic vinegar

  • 1/4 cup/60 mL carrots (finely chopped)
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL celery (finely chopped)

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine ginger, shallots, carrots, and celery in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Caramelize (that means to sauté until browned slightly). Slowly pour in balsamic vinegar, stirring. Reduce by 1/2 and add beef broth. Bring to a boil. Season to taste.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat your grill. Grill the steak. Season mushrooms with salt and pepper and place on grill. Grill steak to the desired doneness and mushrooms until they are tender. Remove everything from the grill. Cut mushrooms into small triangles. Skewer mushrooms pieces with sun-dried tomatoes onto rosemary sprigs.

  3. Place grilled steak on a plate. Top with rosemary skewers and sauce. Serve.
