Mushrooms, Steaks & Garlic Scapes!

My friend and her husband grow their own garlic and hooked me up with a bunch of garlic scapes. Have you guys ever cooked with them before??? I hadn't even heard of them until she asked me if I wanted some and they are AWESOME! I read that you can freeze them, I will definitely be doing that!

This should last me a while!

Ever since she dropped them off, I have been trying to think of ways to use them...I bought some nice filet's from Sam's Club on Friday that needed to be cooked...
I remember one time my Mom asked my brother what he wanted for dinner and he said "How bout steaks?" and my Mom's response was "Well, that's not really a Monday night kinda thing." It must have stuck with me because, rarely, do we have steak on Monday's...Weird, I know...
ANYWAYS...I decided to make a nice butter to go on top of the steak and some yummy mushrooms for the side...here it goes...

Garlic Scape & Rosemary Butter
4 garlic scapes, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1/2 stick butter, room temperature
Using a fork, mash the butter with the garlic scapes and rosemary until blended.
I didn't take any pictures while preparing the butter...oopsie
But this is right after I put it on the meat. How GOOD does that look???

Mmmm Mushrooms

Inspired by : Michael Chiarello
1/2 yellow onion, finely diced
4 garlic scapes, finely chopped (or regular garlic)
1 1/2 pounds whole button mushrooms, washed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon steak seasoning such as Montreal or Adams Reserve House Seasoning
Heat oil in a skillet over med/high heat. Add the onion and garlic scapes, cook until the onions are lightly browned.
Remove onions from the pan, set aside on a paper towel lined plate.
Next, add the mushrooms and let caramelize for approx 8 minutes. DO NOT STIR THEM AROUND.
Finally, add the onions back to the pan, season with seasoning and stir together.
Clearly, I had too much oil...
Not too bad for a Monday night!

I hope ya'll enjoy!
