Ribeye Steak with Oyster Mushrooms

I broke down a whole ribeye today and kept a 2" thick one out as a reward for us.  The rest were vacuum sealed and put away in the freezer.

I rubbed it and reverse seared it.  The slow roast was at 250f dome.


It took right at 50 minutes to hit an internal temp of 125f.  I pulled it off to rest.


I took out the plate setter, put in the spider rig and cast iron and fired it up to 550f.  I seared it for 1 minute per side.


Then I preheated a cast iron pan on the Egg.  I sauteed chopped onion for a few minutes and added some fresh oyster mushrooms that we bought this morning.


Next I added some all purpose rub, fresh thyme, garlic and butter and took it off heat, letting the carry over heat finish cooking it.

I sliced the steak....


And then topped it with the mushroom mixture...


It was the first time I have ever used fresh oyster mushrooms (these were straight from the farm) and I couldn't get over the difference in taste and texture.

    WOW! That looks great! I love oyster mushroom, especially when they're fresh like that. Those are some beatiful photos as well. What type of camera set up are you using?

    I love them too, now that I have found a local source for fresh ones =)) .  At the farmers market this morning a mushroom farm had their chef make a similar saute on the grill.  I was hooked.  They even sell "grow your own" kits.  I'm going to get one for oyster and shitake. 

    I'm shooting a plain old Nikon D60 but use a 50mm prime lens and all manual settings.

    I have a d90 with an 18-55m lens. I need ton pick up a prime lens like your sometime for portraits and the like. The lens is nice, but it's the operator that makes the shot.

    I feel like I've seen this before ;)

    looks as great as the 1st time

    I really like the D90 I have a D70s. and I love it. recently picked up an sb900...aka monster flash :)
    I might be looking to "upgrade" soon.

    the 50mm is my favourite lens.
    context is important :)
