We love steak! And this is a great, simple way to prepare a great steak dish that only needs one cast iron skillet! This One Pan Ribeye Mushroom and Onion Skillet is perfect for two people and takes less than 30 minutes!
A good cast iron skillet is important for this recipe! We love our Calphalon Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron 12-inch skillet for this recipe to evenly cook the steak and achieve that nice beautiful crust! Use our code ‘COOKWITHWINE25’ for 25% off items sitewide (excluding sale items) at Calphalon.com.
Tips for Cooking Steak
The timing for cooking a great steak is a little tricky, as everyone has a different amount of heat coming from their stovetop, and likes their steak cooked to a different temp. So here are some pointers for this recipe to ensure that your steak is cooked to your desired doneness.
If you follow the directions in this recipe, you should have a nice medium-rare steak at the end of the cooking process, but this is based on a 1.5” steak so be mindful of that. A meat thermometer is helpful but expect quite a bit of carryover cooking (the amount the steak will increase in temperature and continue to cook even after it is taken out of the pan). If you do temp the steak, and are shooting for medium rare or just below, then 119°F is a good temperature to remove the meat from the pan to a board and gently covered. You will get about 10-12°F of carryover here.
There are many factors and subtle variables in play here, so test and record what you do so you can improve the next time. You can always put your steak back in the pan if it is a little undercooked for you, but you can’t go back once it’s overcooked! So we tend to err on the undercooked side and adjust slowly from there.
Steak Doneness Temps
The following are the temperatures you want to achieve for various levels of doneness:
- Rare: 120-130°F
- Medium Rare: 130-135°F
- Medium: 135-145°F
- For Medium Well and beyond…. just don’t do it.
We could go on, but honestly anything above medium is not desirable for us, and quite frankly ruins a steak like this, so we don’t recommend cooking a steak that long. Sorry!
The Steak Rub
After that cooking disclaimer, why don’t we talk about how great the flavor is on this steak!?! This simple rub on a steak is delightful and we even thought about keeping it to ourselves, but we felt that sharing it with you all would be best!
Coriander (seeds of cilantro) on a steak…what are your thoughts? Ours are that it is a true silver bullet and absolutely makes for a subtle, yet impactful difference that you probably haven’t experienced yet. We love to change steak rubs all the time and experiment quite a bit, but this one is near the top of our list.
Green peppercorns have a distinct fragrance and beautiful flavor on their own. A touch fruity but pungent and peppery (of course). If you haven’t used them, they’re a must! The coriander seeds are nothing like the leaves of the cilantro plant. They have a distinct flavor and hints of citrus, especially orange. If you fall into the category of people who don’t like cilantro, you will be pleasantly surprised at how different ground coriander seeds taste!
Mushrooms and Onions
As for the mushrooms and onions, you can use any variety of mushrooms you like here for this One Pan Ribeye meal. We prefer to use clamshell or oyster mushrooms for the flavor and texture. Mushrooms and steak just belong together and using all the juices that cooking the steak imparts in the dish is a symphony of flavors to the mushrooms and onions.
The final touch is the wine, since cooking with wine is what we do, we of course added it here as well. The vino addition here really completes the mushrooms and onions component. You can certainly use white wine, but red compliments the steak better in our opinion. Either way, a dry wine is preferred so there isn’t too much added sweetness, which you already get from the onions.
