Grass-Fed Beef Cowboy Steaks with Porter Chocolate Sauce

Cowboy steaks are bone-in ribeyes – a dramatic cut with bold flavor. While they’re delicious with just salt and pepper, you can also pair them with a similarly bold sauce – like this one, made with porter beer, bittersweet chocolate, and onions.

Grass-Fed Beef Cowboy Steaks with Porter Chocolate Sauce
INGREDIENTS
  • Sauce:
  • 2 tbsp chopped Onions
  • 12oz Porter Beer
  • ½ cup Vegetable Stock
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 2 tbsp 70% Bittersweet Chocolate
  • Fresh Chanterelles (could substitute Hedgehog Mushrooms)
  • DIRECTIONS

    1

    Season the cowboy steaks with salt & pepper. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
    2

    Get an oiled frying pan or cast iron skillet (use the peanut, safflower or grapeseed oil) hot over high heat.
    3

    Add the steaks & sear them until they develop a brown crust on the bottom.
    4

    Flip the steaks and top each one with a tablespoon of butter. Continue to sear them until they develop a brown crust on the other side.
    5

    Move the pan to the oven and roast the steaks until they reach an internal temperature of 110 degrees (for rare, longer if you prefer).
    6

    Remove the steaks from the pan to a clean plate, and loosely cover them with foil. Let them rest while you construct the sauce.
    7

    Add the porter beer, vegetable stock and onions to the steak pan, scraping the bottom to incorporate the browned bits. Bring the liquid to a simmer.

    8

    Continue to simmer until the liquid has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Stir in the butter until it combines with the rest of the sauce.
    9

    Stir the chocolate into the sauce until it melts.
    10

    In a separate pan, saute the chanterelles over high heat until they start to caramelize. Add salt to taste.
    11

    Serve the steaks with the chanterelles & your starch of choice, sauced with the chocolate & porter sauce.
