  • 300 g aged steak of your choice, boneless
  • Olive oil, for drizzling

  • A few large brown mushrooms, sliced

  • A few drops of truffle oil (or truffle flavoured oil)


  1. Drizzle the steak with oil and season with salt & pepper.
  2. Braai over hot coals or grill in a piping hot griddle pan, until cooked to your liking (3.5 minutes a side for a 3 cm thick steak for medium-rare).
  3. Remove and leave to rest while you prepare the mushrooms.
  4. Heat the butter over high heat in a pan, then fry the mushrooms with the thyme until golden brown on all sides. Season with salt & pepper. Remove from the heat, then add a few drops of truffle oil and stir to mix.
  5. Top the rested steak with the hot truffle mushrooms and serve at once.
