Wash produce before use
Sear the mushrooms
- Trim the stem ends from the maitake mushrooms; separate the mushrooms into small bunches.
In a dry large frying pan over high heat, add the mushrooms in a single layer, season with salt and pepper, and cook, undisturbed, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the mushrooms and cook, undisturbed, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
Prep and cook the steaks
- Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In the same pan used for the mushrooms, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks.
For filet mignons:
Cook, turning frequently, until well browned, 8 to 12 minutes for medium-rare.
For New York strips and rib-eyes:
Cook, turning once, until well browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium-rare.
Transfer the cooked steaks to a plate to rest for 5 minutes. Do not clean the pan. While the steaks are cooking and resting, prepare the salad.
Start the salad
- Peel the kiwi; cut the kiwi in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons. Set aside for serving.
In a large bowl, toss together the mixed greens, balsamic vinegar, and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Prep the remaining ingredients; make the pan sauce
- Peel and finely chop enough shallots to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for garnish.
In the same pan used for the steaks, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons butter or oil (from your pantry) over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the shallots are softened, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the chicken broth and mustard and bring to a boil, then reduce to a vigorous simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, 3 to 4 minutes. If using, stir in 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] butter (from your pantry) and simmer until melted and the sauce has thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat, stir in half the parsley, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the steaks and salad to individual plates. Top the steaks with the mushrooms, spoon over the pan sauce, and garnish with the remaining parsley. Top the salad with the kiwi and serve.
