Steak with Mushrooms and Green Beans~ Circulon Canada

Nothing goes better with a perfectly well cooked steak, than mushrooms and green beans.

Last month, I celebrated my 6th Blogging Anniversary with a really fun giveaway. I had prizes for both my American and Canadian readers. Circulon Canada graciously sent one of my readers one of their NEW Circulon Prime skillets. As a bonus, they also sent me one too! I was super excited, because my current non stick skillets had seen better days.

Isn't it pretty!!
Circulon Prime Non Stick Cookware consists of a 3 Layer total Non Stick System, which is Metal Utensil Safe, Dishwasher Safe and Suitable for all Stove Tops. Their cookware is also oven safe to 400 degrees F/200 degrees C and is PFOA, lead and cadmium free. It has a beautiful red silicone polyester finish and comes with a guarantee and brand promise, that food will not stick, while cooking. These skillets are available exclusively at Canadian Tire Stores across Canada.

Making a delicious breakfast scramble

I've been using my skillet at least once a day, since I got it. I cook anything from eggs and pancakes, to grilled sandwiches, steak and sauteed veggies. I absolutely LOVE this skillet. My old non stick pans have always stuck, or they would get a weird black film on the bottom. In this skillet, I have no egg residue, my home fries don't stick and, with a simple wash, it comes out looking brand new. So I knew this skillet would work beautifully for steaks, and sauteed mushrooms and green beans.

I'm not a big steak eater, but through a school fundraiser, we discovered these AMAZING steaks. They are marinated, individually packaged and frozen. Each steak is about 3 inches in diameter and 1 1/2 inches thick. No matter how you like your steak, these come out tender and juicy. While cooking them in my Circulon Prime skillet, I could see a wonderful caramelization happening on the meat. I knew the drippings were going to be delicious, so I decided to use them to saute some fresh mushrooms and green beans. Let me tell you, it was the best steak dinner I've had in a long time AND I didn't have to go spend a ton of money at a local steakhouse, to get it!

Steak with Mushrooms and Green Beans

4 steaks, seasoned the way you like them (we like Montreal Steak Spice)
1 Tbs olive oil
1- 8oz pkg button mushrooms, cleaned and cut into quarters
1/2 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper

Take your steak out at least 20 minutes before cooking, to let the chill off. This will help the steak cook more evenly. 

Preheat your non stick skillet and olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil begins to ripple, add in your steak, increasing the heat to med-high heat. Cook for 3-5 minutes per side, depending on how you like your steak cooked. Remove steaks to a plate and loosely cover with foil, to rest, while sauteing the veggies.

Lower the temperature to medium heat and add in the mushrooms. Toss to coat with drippings and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until mushrooms begin to brown. Add in the green beans and garlic, tossing once again to coat with the drippings. Season with a generous pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper. Cook until green beans become tender crisp.

Serve steak with mushrooms and green beans.
