Cowboy Steaks

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Essence
  • 4 (12 to 14 ounce) each steaks, Porterhouse, T-bone, Strip Loin, Rib or Tenderloin Steak
  • 2 cups julienned assorted Exotic mushrooms
  • 1 cup julienned onions
  • 1 large onion, ring into rings, about 1/8-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup Tabasco pepper sauce
  • 1 cup flour
  • Oil for frying
  • 1 cup mashed roasted root vegetables
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • Salt and pepper


  • Preheat the grill In a shallow bowl, combine the olive oil and Essence, to make a paste. Smear each steak with the rub, covering the entire steak completely. Marinate the steaks for about an hour. Place the steaks on the grill and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from the grill and each steak on a cedar plank. Toss the mushrooms and onions with salt and pepper. Mound the vegetables on top of each steak and place back on the grill.
  • Cook the steaks on the plank for 4 minutes for medium rare. Toss the onion rings in the Tabasco pepper sauce. Dredge the onions in the flour. Fry the onions until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from the fryer and season with salt and pepper. In a saucepan, combine the roasted vegetables and mashed potatoes together.
