Mushroom and Peppercorn Crusted Steak in a Creamy Brie Mushroom Sauce

Mushroom and Peppercorn Crusted Steak in a Creamy Brie Mushroom Sauce
With Valentine's Day just around the corner I have been thinking and testing out some new recipes and this tasty Mushroom and Peppercorn Crusted Steak in a Creamy Brie Mushroom Sauce is the front runner this year. Steak is always a favourite and it goes so well with mushrooms and it's even better when you crust the steak with mushrooms by coarsely grinding up some dried mushrooms and pressing them into the steak before searing it, grilling it, etc. Steak done crusted with mushrooms like this is so amazingly good but I could not stop there so I grabbed my favourite mushroom sauce and I took it to a whole new level by using brie cheese to make it even creamier and oh so good! You can use any mushrooms that you like in this sauce and for this one I used a combination of button, oyster, portobello and enoki mushrooms to make it extra special! No matter how you slice it, this Mushroom and Peppercorn Crusted Steak in a Creamy Brie Mushroom Sauce is perfect for any occasion and there won't be any leftovers!
