  • 2 lbs flank steak (one large piece)
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup porcini mushroom powder (grind up 3/4 cup/0.7 oz.) dried mushrooms using a spice mill or a mortar and pestle
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil, such as grapeseed, canola, or avocado
  • garnishes (optional): goat cheese, caramelized onions, chopped chives.


  1. Combine ground red pepper flakes, porcini powder, sugar, kosher salt, and black pepper in a small bowl.

  2. Rub porcini powder mixture all over steak and set aside.

  3. Heat butter and oil in a large skillet (cast iron would be ideal) over medium heat. Add steak to the hot pan and cook for 4-6 minutes per side, flipping once when the bottom is browned and crisp.

  4. Remove from pan and let rest for 2 minutes.

    Thinly slice and top with any desired garnishes.
