Printable Recipe – Steak Marsala with Mushrooms.

This recipe is one of my favorite ways to have steak.  The beef is first perfectly cooked and then topped with a delicious Marsala wine sauce with mushrooms.  It is to die for!

One of the best things about the sauce is that if you prefer it on chicken, it also adapts very well and gives the chicken  a very hearty taste.

Be sure to make the sauce first.  It takes longer than the steaks do and you will want the steaks warm when you pour on the sauce.

I had this recipe tonight with Italian roasted potatoes and onions and it was wonderful.

Steak Marsala with Mushrooms

Marsala wine and mushrooms combine to give these steak recipe a wonderful topping.

Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 16 ounces of sirloin steak
  • 1/2 tsp of Mediterranean sea salt
  • Pinch of Freshly ground cracked black pepper
  • 1 rabkseoiib if Fresh parsley

For the Marsala sauce

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tablespoons fresh thyme
  • pinch of Mediterranean sea salt
  • dash of Freshly ground cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup Marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp cold butter


  1. Place the steaks on a serving dish, and bring the butter to room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a medium pan over a medium heat.
  3. Add the water, mushrooms and thyme, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until the mushrooms just start to soften and release their juices, about 3-4 minutes
  4. Pour in the Marsala wine and heavy cream. Simmer until thickened about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool a couple minutes - now it is time to start the steaks.
  5. Heat a large skillet to medium-high-high heat. Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Add the butter to the skillet and cook to your desired done-ness. I like mine medium rare, so I cook them for 5 minutes per side.
  6. Pour over the Marsala sauce, sprinkle with parsley, and serve immediately.

My sauce never thickened, got any advice?

Hi Chelsea. Not sure why it wouldn't thicken. It might have something to do with how high the burner is and how long you cook the sauce. Did you make any adjustments to the amounts? One thing that works if a sauce is too thin, is to add 1 tbsp of corn starh or arrowroot powder with some water and stir it into the sauce. This will thicken any sauce quickly. Carol

what do you do with the butter?

Hi Kathy. Whoops. The butter is used to cook the steaks. I've edited the recipe to show this. Thanks for pointing out my oversight. Carol

why doesn't my sauce look as brown.

HI Trisha. The color comes primarily from the depth of the wine, I would say. You could try a wine with a deeper color, or even substitute some beef broth some of the wine.
