Lion’s mane steak
Ingredients for 2 portions:
- 1 pound of lion’s mane mushroom
- 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
- 2 or 4 teaspoon of tamari per slice
First, slice the mushroom into thick slices (around 4 centimeters) as you would do with a regular steak.
You can cook it on the barbeque or also in a pan.
Today we will use a pan.
Turn the heat on medium high, wait until the frying pan is hot, add a tablespoon of vegetable oil , then the mushroom slices. Pour 1 or 2 teaspoon of tamari depending on the size of the slice (1 for smaller one, 2 for bigger) over the mushroom steak slice, flip it and repeat it on the other side too. Press it down into the pan by putting another pan over it with, for example cans in it, to weigh it down.
Let them cook for about 4 minutes, then flip them.
After cooking the other side for 3 minutes, remove the weighing pan and the steak is ready to be served!
You can serve this steak simply with potatoes, a green salad, and pickles. To enhance your dish, you can also use our mushroom cream sauce on the lion's mane steak.
