I am so excited today to be part of a movement, the #SundaySupper movement. The idea is to bring the family together for a home-cooked meal on Sunday. When I was little, we would go to my grandmother’s house for the weekly meal. You could smell her delicious cooking while you were walking up to her apartment.

Today, the hubby, kids and I get together with our extended family at least once a week to share a meal, making great memories for my kids. Getting the family together to share a meal has always been a passion of mine, so I was super excited when Isabel from Family Foodie invited me to join her and many other bloggers for #SundaySupper.

And today’s Simple and Fresh Summer Recipes for #SundaySupper is even more special. LAND O LAKES® invited the group to sample their newest butter, Olive Oil & Sea Salt, to feature in our meal today. All week on our Facebook page, the #SundaySupper group shared their recipe ideas, making me hungry and drooling all over my keyboard. And since I was new to the group, I wanted to make something extra-special.

As I shared with you before, my eldest just graduated from elementary school. His favorite food is red meat. “I’m a carnivore, Mommy, like T-Rex!” he would roar to me when he was 5 years old. In the past couple of years, he discovered that he likes mushrooms.

So, in honor of my growing baby boy and his ever-evolving taste buds, I decided to make Flank Steak with Garlic and Wild Mushrooms.

I was drooling before I even went shopping.

Flank Steak is a terrific cut of meat to use when you are in a hurry. It’s a thinner cut of meat, but still full of flavor and not overly expensive as the premium cuts. This is great when you are feeding a family of five! I used a 2lb slab of meat and cut it in half, for faster even cooking.

With our 13 year old grill out of commission, I decided to pan sear the steak using my grill pan and my new butter.

Flank takes about 15-20 minutes to cook, so I quickly chopped my mushrooms while it cooked. I used white button, shiitake, oyster and enoki for this meal.

When the steaks were ready, I let them rest on the serving platter and melter more butter. Then, I added the meatier white button & shitake mushrooms to cook first.

Next came the oyster mushrooms and some garlic.

I removed the pan from heat, added a dab more of butter, a little Worcestershire sauce and quickly stirred in the enoki. I poured the buttered mushrooms over the flank steaks and garnished with fresh thyme and green onions.

You can serve this with mashed potatoes, buttered noodles, some crusty bread, brown rice or roasted vegetables.
