Meaty Lion's Mane Steak
For all those who want to give up meat, but not the flavor.
Preheat your oven to 200°C. If you have a grill, feel free to preheat it instead.
Add 1 Tbsp of oil to your ovenproof pan. If you don't have one, that's fine - you can just transfer the steaks to a baking tray before putting them in the oven later. Add your mushrooms and let them cook for 1-2 minutes on each side over medium heat.
Now, slightly turn up the heat, take another pan (or something heavy) and press your Lion's mane heads down. Let the mushrooms cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. You may want to use oven mitts or a kitchen towel to press down the mushrooms to not burn yourself. You'll notice they'll release lots of water - that's what we want.
Now add another tablespoon of oil to the pan and sauté your mushrooms for another 2-3 minutes on each side under the second pan.
Now add your butter, sprinkle half a tsp of spice mix on each side, and let cook both sides for another minute or two without the additional pan.
The last step! Put your mushrooms in the oven (if you're not using an ovenproof pan, transfer your steaks to a baking tray) for 10 minutes. If you're using a grill, place your mushrooms on the grill for about 3-5 minutes on each side.
If you like, sprinkle on some extra spice mix before serving and voilà! We like to serve it with classic BBQ sides: corn, potato salad, ... :)
