      ¼ cup coarsely ground black pepper
      ¼ cup kosher salt
      2 strip loin steaks
      2 tbsp olive oil
      1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
      1 tsp soy sauce
      1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
      2 cloves garlic
      1 tsp minced garlic
      1 tbsp butter
      1 package sliced mushrooms


Preheat oven to 450° F. Mix Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, salt, pepper and mustard in bowl. Rub each steak with garlic clove then coat with mixture. Heat oil and butter in large, heavy cast iron skillet until just at smoking point. Add steaks to pan and sear well – 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place cast iron pan with steaks into oven with mushrooms and minced garlic. Cook for 7 minutes for medium rare, turning once. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Additional Tips

The small size mushroom packs a variety of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, riboflavin, niacin, folate and fibre. Choose lean meat with words such as “loin” or “round” in its name to reduce your intake of saturated fat. Use meat, poultry and fish as complements to the vegetables, grains, and fruit in your meals. For example, the meat portion would account for only one-quarter instead of one half of your plate.
