Why You Should Serve Mushrooms On Father’s Day

Just one 100g serving of mushrooms provides 8-22ug selenium; about 1/2 of the daily recommended amount.

Research indicates that selenium-rich foods may lower the likelihood of developing prostate cancer and slow prostate tumor progression.

So how does selenium work its magic? It’s an antioxidant and protects the body cells from damage that might lead to heart disease, some cancers, and other diseases of aging. It also has been found to be important for the immune system and could also play a role in the fertility of men.

And there you have it! Now all you have to do is make sure that you throw a handful of mushrooms into every dish you serve – your man will love you for it!

Father’s Day Lunch – Truffle Mushroom Steak

A steak doesn’t always need an actual sauce. This luxurious combination of truffle oil and pan-friend large brown mushrooms on a perfectly cooked matured steak are the stuff dreams are made of.

Truffle Mushroom Steak

  • 300 g aged steak of your choice (boneless)
  • olive oil (for drizzling)
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • a few large brown mushrooms (sliced)
  • 2 sprigs thyme (woody stalks discarded)
  • a few drops of truffle oil (or truffle flavoured oil)
  1. Drizzle the steak with oil and season with salt and pepper.

  2. Braai over hot coals or grill in a piping hot griddle pan until cooked to your liking (3,5 minutes per side for a 3cm thick steak for medium rare).

  3. Remove and leave to rest while you prepare the mushrooms.

  4. Heat the butter over a high heat in a pan, then fry the mushrooms with the thyme until golden brown on all sides.

  5. Season with salt and pepper.

  6. Remove from the heat, then add a few drops of truffle oil and stir to mix.

  7. Top the rested steak with the hot truffle mushrooms and serve immediately.
