Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe
While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients and equipment needed for this recipe have been linked to Amazon or other stores if available online.
It may not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, sugar, etc., as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

- For best results, allow steaks to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes prior to cooking.
How Do I Make Seared Strip Steak?
Check out the printable recipe card below with full ingredients and instructions. Any demonstration photos do not print out to save your ink.
- 2 (8-oz/225g) strip steaks (sirloin)
- Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided
- 8 oz (225g) white mushrooms, sliced
- 1 tsp dried rosemary (or 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary leaves, very finely chopped)
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Generously season the steaks on both sides with salt and black pepper, to taste. Set aside.
- Add olive oil to a large cast-iron skillet set over medium-high heat. Heat skillet for 5 minutes until very hot, before adding the meat. Sear the steaks until nicely browned, approximately 2-3 minutes per side.
- Remove skillet from heat and top each steak with 1 tablespoon unsalted butter.
Transfer the skillet to the center of the preheated oven and roast for 8-10 minutes or until an instant-read meat thermometer reads 130°F/55°C for medium-rare.*
- Once the steaks are in the oven, add the remaining butter to another skillet set over medium heat. Add mushrooms, rosemary, and garlic powder. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring frequently until the mushrooms are nicely browned and start to release their juices. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Remove skillet from oven and transfer steaks to a large plate. Cover loosely with aluminum foil and rest for 5 minutes. (Internal temperature will continue to rise several degrees while they rest). Remove foil and serve immediately topped with some of the sautéed mushrooms. Enjoy!
- Actual cook time will vary depending on a number of factors, including internal starting temperature, the thickness of the steaks, individual oven variances, and preferred level of ‘doneness.’ Check after 6-7 minutes and adjust cook time accordingly.
